How to Get Your House Ready to Sell!

If you are ready to sell your home there are a few things that you need to consider to sell your house quickly.  The hard truth is that home buyers want a turn-key space. They expect the seller to do all of the “heavy lifting”.  This blog post will help you in the home preparation process!

Pre-Market Improvements

To prepare your house for a quick sale you will need to focus on pre-market improvements.  What does that mean? It means going through each part of your house and making cosmetic changes, finishing any unfinished projects, fixing items that need to be repaired, home staging, and deep cleaning.  You can create a do-do list for yourself to stay organized and get an idea of what those repairs and projects will cost you.  Don’t forget to take inventory of any outside repairs or incomplete projects as well.  


One of the major components to selling your house quickly is home staging. Staging a house is what draws buyers in, it helps them envision themselves living in the space and can even get them to develop an emotional connection to the house.  Buyers tend to lack vision so you want to define spaces and create a space where they can see value.  You will want to start by decluttering your house. Take time to simplify each space by depersonalizing it. Take down personal memorabilia, family photos, and excess knick-knacks. You will also want to focus on making flat spaces such as counters, nightstands, and tabletops as clear as possible. Make sure to include your closets and storage areas by taking 50% out so that they appear more spacious.

Then you move on to rearranging your house to make it feel open and airy.  Start by removing large, bulky furniture then arrange what’s left to maximize the flow of the house.  Another thing you will want to consider is painting your walls a neutral color.  Once you have simplified your space, you can then add in strategic accessories to make it easy for buyers to envision enjoying. For example, a coffee bar area, live plants, and on trend artwork. When you have the inside complete, head outside to create a little curb appeal with flowers and a seating or outdoor dining area. All of these things will attract a buyer quickly!
