Home Selling Tips

Spring time is here and the local market is heating up.  If you are selling your home, here are a couple of tips to get your home “show ready”.


Rearrange Bedroom Closets and Kitchen Cabinets

Buyers love to snoop and will open closet and cabinet doors. Think of the message it sends if items fall out! Now imagine what a buyer believes about you if she sees everything organized. It says you probably take good care of the rest of the house as well. This means:

  •      Alphabetize spice jars.
  •      Neatly stack dishes.
  •      Turn coffee cup handles facing the same way.
  •      Hang shirts together, buttoned and facing the
  •      same direction.
  •      Line up shoes.


Remove/Replace Favorite Items

If you want to take window coverings, built-in appliances or fixtures with you, remove them now. If the chandelier in the dining room once belonged to your great grandmother, take it down. If a buyer never sees it, she won’t want it. Once you tell a buyer she can’t have an item, she will covet it, and it could blow your deal. Pack those items and replace them, if necessary.
