Storage is something every buyer is looking for and can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and cabinets clean and tidy.
Brighten it up
After location, good light is the one thing that every buyer wants in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let in sunshine.
Hide the pets
Not everyone loves your cuddly cat or dog. Put away the food bowls. Stuff their toys in a hiding spot. No one wants to see pet fur or smell a pet. If you have an open house consider putting them at a pet spa or give to a family member or friend to watch for a day.
Little things make the difference
Don’t think you have to make huge improvements. You may not make your money back. However, little items can help. Get a new fresh coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles, cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.
Focus on the most important room
It’s the kitchen! You’re selling your kitchen. Make sure it’s clean and neutral. If you have extra money spend it on one new stainless steel appliance. It updates the kitchen. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new cabinet hardware.
