MAKE IT SHINE!
PACK ON UP!
MAKE A MOVE
Help buyers see your wonderful space by removing personal photos, quotes, and opinions (anything religious/political or otherwise). Show off the areas of your home that you love–like those great built-in bookshelves on either side of your fireplace. You want your buyer’s eyes to be on your lovely home and not on that amazing photo of your handsome husband!
APPEAL TO THE EYES!
Show as much open space in your home (and closets) as you can. During showings of your home, keep your curtains and blinds open to allow for natural light, and turn your fans on low. Make sure all art is hung at eye level, and limit artwork to three small pieces or one large piece of art. Declutter all surfaces in your home, keeping items to three small decorative items or one larger item per surface. In the kitchen, pack or relocate as much as you can to show off your nice, clean countertops; and, tidy up the front of your fridge–go ahead and bite the bullet and remove your awesome magnetic photo montage until you have a new fridge to decorate!
SPEND TIME IN YOUR CLOSETS!
Remove hanging clothes, store out-of-season clothes, and pare down your amazing selection of puffy coats to open space in your closet. Clear all items from the floor of your closets, keep closet shelving neatly organized (think: woven baskets or nice looking bins), and allow for open space on the shelves as well. Show off your storage space to your new buyer by allowing them to see o p e n s p a c e!
