There’s a lot more to selling your house than hiring a realtor and calling it a day. Use this checklist to make sure your house looks and feels like “the one” to potential buyers!
Boring is better
It’s easier for potential buyers to envision their life in a home and put their own design spin on a space when they’re starting with a blank slate. You might love your zebra print rug or multicolored wall tapestry, but if a potential buyer doesn’t have quite the same taste, the wrong decor could ruin their impression of the whole house.
Don’t let a jiggly door handle cost you a sale. In the mind of a buyer, if something as simple as a doorknob is overlooked, who’s to say more serious maintenance issues won’t arise?
You may not be able to move out entirely before placing your house on the market, but it could be worth it to place some personal items in storage to declutter your house for potential buyers. A clean house is much easier to sell than one with stains on the carpet and too many appliances on the countertops.
Think about the smells in your house. Candles, paint, perfume, pets, food and drink spills, and funky kitchen smells like to linger. Maybe you stopped noticing them a long time ago, but to someone new — those smells could stop them in their tracks. Make sure the house smells as clean as it looks!
They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but potential buyers will definitely judge a house by its curb appeal.
