Helpful tips to help sell your home:

  • Crank up the curb appeal by pulling weeds, raking leaves and trimming overgrown shrubs and bushes.
  • A fresh coat of paint will make your home brighter and more appealing.
  • Fix things like leaky faucets and sticky cabinets, and replace door and window screens.
  • Rearrange your furniture to allow for easy traffic flow and showcase the purpose of each room.
  • Pack up personal photos and portraits. Less is always more. The less clutter you have lying around, the more potential buyers will be able to see your home and what it offers. Remember, you are selling your house, not your stuff.
  • Organize your house so buyers can envision themselves living a stress-free life in your home.
  • Clean every inch of your house
  • If your carpet appears old and stained, think about replacing it.
  • Purchase an air-neutralizing spray that will help remove odors without creating an overwhelming masking odor.
  • Lighten up your home by letting the sun shine in, and turn on the lights.
  • Be sure potential buyers are comfortable when touring your home. If it's freezing outside, leave the heat on, and if it's summer, turn on the air conditioner.
  • While listed, keep your home in tip-top shape at all times.
  • Consider having a pre-listing inspection performed. Buyers will be hiring professional inspectors; here's your chance to address problems in advance.
  • Consider engaging a professional stager to give your home the right emotional appeal.
