Home sellers are reported to recoup 97% of the new Front Door cost.

  • Replace or paint your front door!
  • Make sure your doorbell functions well.
  • Repair any loose hardware on your front door.
  • Oil the door hinges.

 

Keep it Clean – Light & Bright!

Front Room Your Choice: Office, Den, or Living Room

Before you do anything else… Declutter your home. Decluttering your home makes it appear bigger, brighter, and much more appealing to potential buyers! Plus, selling your home need NOT be as stressful as you might think… If you keep things clean and organized!

Your home should look and feel welcoming as soon as potential buyers come in the front door. When home buyers enter your front door they usually form their opinion for the rest of your house.  Your foyer is the first area potential home buyers see when they enter your home. Just like good curb appeal, you want to make it feel welcoming and bright. Well-lit areas are the most welcoming spaces.

  • Use light neutral color schemes that brighten your home.
  • Hang a beautiful mirror to make any space look bigger and brighter!

Lighting: Use a combination of permanent lights and other lamps to make your home look welcoming anytime of day or night.  Try using a decorative chandeliers, and lamps to brighten your home.

 

Compliment Don’t Distract

Effectively stage your home by flaunting it’s strengths. You can do this by displaying updates, and making focal points in key rooms. Focus on decorating the kitchen and living rooms with the best that you have. The best way to display furniture is by grouping it in sections of the carpet and away from the walls.

Keep wall art simple, it can make or break any real estate deal. Large areas of vacant wall space can be boring, so incorporate simple artwork that complements your wall color!

Gorgeous front doors, well-lit foyers, simple decor, and neutral tones make lasting impressions that help your home sell fast!

Get Your House Ready to SELL in 3 Steps – Fruitland REALTOR

If you’re like most people, getting your house ready to sell is an overwhelming thought. Keep it simple with these 3 steps!

Dineingroom

1. Clean inside and out!

Home buyers are turned off by other peoples dirt. Inside: Clean your home from top to bottom and make sure your bathrooms and kitchen are spotless before each showing! Outside: make sure landscaping is clean cut, and your personal property (toys and tools, etc.) are put away.

2. Repairs

Little details matter when selling your home! Make sure to patch little holes in the drywall, and get that leaky faucet repaired! Potential buyers will notice anything left un-fixed. Make each showing count by making fixes before you list your home.  Potential home buyers often feel uneasy about the condition of your house in need of any repairs!

3. Stage Your Home To Sell!

Staging your home starts with de-cluttering, decorating or organizing your furniture and belongings to define a space, and de personalizing. So put your family pictures and stacks of bills away. Make sure that each space looks it’s best for the space. Example: Dining rooms should have a clean table with a vase of flowers and chairs around it. If possible center the table under the chandelier!
