Cut The Clutter

Remove magnets, pictures, souvenirs from the refrigerator. Use the general two-thirds rule: remove 2/3 of everything on any flat surface in your home. Since you are already planning to move, this is a great time to donate unused items, get rid of things you don’t need or want, and start packing for your new home. Store boxes in a rented storage unit rather than in your garage.

Take Time To Do A Deep Cleaning Of Every Part Of Your Home

If you can afford to use a cleaning service, you will find that outsourcing this cumbersome task will free you to take care of other aspects of your move.

Pay Attention To Detail

Don’t forget to clean baseboards, tops of doors and doorframes, as well as your carpet, hard floor coverings, and grout.

Clean And Polish Woodwork And Cabinetry

This is especially important in the kitchen where most buyers plan to spend the most time.

Clean Light Fixtures And Replace Burnt Out Bulbs

Consider changing to brighter bulbs if the fixture is rated for higher wattage than your current bulbs. Dead bugs and cobwebs detract from the appeal of the home and often indicate neglect to buyers.

Thoroughly Clean All Windows, Windowsills, And Screens

For the best impression, both the outside and inside should be cleaned regularly during the time your home is on the market

While You May Have Great Taste, And Love Your Unusual Color Schemes

Most buyers prefer to see your home as something of an empty canvas that they can customize to their own liking. It is very difficult for most people to see “past the paint”, so make it as easy as possible for them to fall in love with your home.

Fill Nail Holes And Repaint Walls That Are In Less Than Stellar Condition

Buyers want everything “move in ready”, so the more you do to assist the process, at least in their perception, the easier it will be to sell your home.
