If you want to put your home on the market this year, or at any point in the future, there are a few critical steps you’ll need to take.

First, you will need to declutter. Getting rid of unsightly or unneeded junk around your house will make the property appear bigger and cleaner. 

    Storing away personal items like sports paraphernalia and family photos will make it easier for buyers to see your house as their future home.

Next, make sure to change all of the light bulbs in your house. Every light in your home should be turned on during showings, as this will make your home appear more bright and spacious. 

And while you’re at it, don’t forget to give your home a thorough deep cleaning. All that bright light is bound to make gathering dust and other imperfections stand out, so scrub your house from top to bottom before buyers set foot inside. 

Finally, it’s time to depersonalize your home. Storing away personal items like sports paraphernalia and family photos will make it easier for buyers to see your house as their future home.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
