How to Prepare Your Home to Sell

Hello, everyone. Welcome back to my video blog.

A lot of sellers ask me what to do to get their home ready to list. There are a lot of simple things you can do that make a tremendous impact on a potential buyer.

First, make sure your home is clean. It may seem obvious, but I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve walked into a home with a buyer only to find dirty laundry and dishes. I even had a buyer turn right around and walk out of the house because the home smelled unpleasant.

Secondly, remove clutter from your home. Take down any personal items such as pictures and religious items. Buyers want to imagine themselves in the home and that can be hard when your possessions are everywhere.

Your main goal is to showcase your home. Turn on the lights and open the blinds to get as much light in as possible. Organize the room. Put an air freshener in. You’d be amazed at how these simple tricks can really catch a buyer’s attention.

Thanks for watching! If you have any questions or are ready to buy or sell, please give me call.
