Got a sec? Great. All alone? Perfect! It's time to lean in real close cause I’m back with Secret #2 in my 5 Secrets of a Successful Sale.
Secret #1: It’s your kitchen that’ll sell your home.
Secret #2: Declutter, depersonalize, and stage your home.
Buyers must be able to picture themselves living in YOUR home. Give them a chance to do just that by decluttering, depersonalizing, and staging your home.
Picture your home as a vacation rental. If you wouldn’t see it out in a rental, you shouldn’t see it out during a showing.
A few modest photos here and there is fine, but pack away the excess, take down oversized monograms, and remove wall letters from the kids’ rooms.
If you’re using the dining room as a craft area or home office, reset it as a space to dine. Also, get rid of unnecessary furniture to make your living room feel airy and spacious. Staging doesn't have to be costly or complicated — it simply helps buyers make sense of your home and see its potential.
When it comes to getting your home ready for the market, less is ALWAYS more. Need advice on how to get your home prepped? I’d love to help.
