Clear all unnecessary objects from furniture throughout the house. Keep decorative objects on the furniture restricted to groups of 1, 3, or 5 items.
Clear all unnecessary objects from the kitchen countertops. If it hasn't been used for three months... put it away! Clear everything pff your refrigerator: messages, pictures, etc. (A sparse kitchen helps the buyer mentally move their own things into your kitchen.)
In the bathroom, remove any unnecessary items from countertops, tubs, shower stalls and commode tops. Keep only your most needed cosmetics, brushes,perfumes etc.., in one small group on the counter. Coordinate towels to one or two colors only.
As owners, many times we have too much furniture in a room. This is wonderful for our own personal enjoyment, but when it comes to selling, we need to thin out as much as possible to make rooms appear larger.
Take down, or rearrange certain pictures or objects on walls. Patch and re-paint if necessary. Review the house inside room by room, and paint any room needing paint. Clean carpets or drapes that need it. Clean Windows. If you need room to store extra posessions rent a storage unit or POD. If you must use the garage, keep it as organized as possible when storing things and your home is for sale. Leave on certain lights during the day.
During showings; turn on all lights and lamps. Have music on during the day for all showings.
Go around the perimeter of the house and move all garbage cans, discarded wood scraps, extra building materials, etc., into the garage. Make sure the garage is swept and cleaned. Look at all plants... prune bushes and trees. Keep plants from blocking windows.
YOU CAN'T SELL A HOUSE IF YOU CAN'T SEE IT.
Plants are like children — they grow so fast!! Weed and then mulch all planting areas. Keep lawn freshly cut and fertilized. Remove any dead plants or shrubs. Clear patios or decks of all small items. such as small planters, flower pots, charcoal, barbecues, toys. etc.. (Put them in the garage or a storage unit.) Check paint condition of the house — especially the front door and trim. “CURB APPEAL REALLY WORKS!”
