5 TIPS TO PREP YOUR HOME FOR A SHOWING
Clean, clean, clean. Be sure to clean every corner. Don’t forget overlooked areas, such as polishing appliances and faucets, and washing the windows. Consider hiring a cleaning service.
Pay attention to smells. Do your best not to cook smelly foods the day of a showing. Smell is extremely important. For an added touch buy scented candles.
Clear out the clutter. You want buyers to focus on how awesome your space is, not how messy it looks. Consider renting a storage unit to clear the house and highlight its features.
Let there be light. Open your shades and blinds to let in natural light and add floor or table lamps to illuminate areas that are dim. A bright, cheery room looks bigger and more inviting.
Bring nature into your home. Potted plants or a vase with flowers can help bring energy into a space, fill in empty corners, and even draw attention to features you want buyers to notice. Just make sure the plants are in good health.
