3D's To Preparing Your Home For Market!

1.) Depersonalize:  Whether you have lived in your home for 20 years or 2; your house has accumulated personal memorable for your growing family. In preparation for getting your home on market, it is now time to take down personal photos, degree certifications and any other personal artifacts that could be distracting to a buyer. You see, it's important that buyer is not distracted and able to look through the home imagining their own family there. A home stager had said it best, "a buyer should walk out of your home knowing as much about the seller as walking in."

2.) Deodorize: It may sound silly but your family pet leave smells behind. If your carpet and padding is in salvageable shape, hire a professional carpet cleaner to not only clean but deodorize your carpets. This will leave your home smelling fresh and leaving the buyer without any concerns. Remember, buyers often pick out the home's negatives before positives.

3.) Declutter: It's imperative to remove any unused pieces of furniture or those blocking walk ways. Clear the coffee tables, night stands and kitchen cabinets of any "nicknacks." Again, we want the buyer to be able to appreciate the space, size and picture their family living there. Spend just a few minutes and visualize the home as if it was the first time you had entered. What were the initial aspects of the house that made you want to purchase? Odds are the reasons you purchased the house will be an deciding factor for a buyer as well. Put anything and everything you don't need on a daily basis in a box and store in your garage.
