Before you officially stick that For Sale sign in your front yard, you will want to make sure that you are doing everything you can to impress the potential home buyers that will be stopping by in the future. This way, you will be more likely to not only sell your home quickly, but possibly for a better price than you could have ever hoped for. The best thing would be for a couple of interested buyers to get into a bidding war for your home.
Brighten Up The Interior Walls
One thing that you will want to pay close attention to is how you are going to brighten up the inside of your home. When you can brighten the walls, you will not only be giving them a fresh clean look, but you can help make the space look so much bigger. To do this, you will want to cover all old nail holes with drywall mud and once that dries, you can sand it smooth. Then you will want to paint all of the walls one neutral color that could easily go with any personal decor style a potential buyer may be into. Another trick for making the rooms look great is to pull back the curtains or pull up the window blinds. Let some natural light into the room, as this can also help make the rooms look bigger and more inviting. This way, no matter who is looking over your house, they will have an easier time seeing themselves living there.
Pack Up Your Stuff
This is not to say that you have to completely move out of the home. If you are still living there, you still need your furniture and a lot of personal items. However, you might want to lighten up on the amount of stuff that you are keeping in the home while you are trying to get it sold. For example, if you have a closest stuffed to the ceiling with stuff, it may appear as though the closet is small and that it does not provide enough storage space. However, if you put half of that stuff in a rented storage unit and nicely organized the rest of what is in there, it may give off the impression that the closet has a lot of space for storage. You will want to go through all of the rooms in your house, including places such as the basement and attic, and remove a lot of the clutter. Then, once you are ready to move, all of the stuff that is in storage is already packed up and ready to go.
With a few simple tips like the previously mentioned ones, you will be able to really impress the potential buyers that view your home.
