Preparing to Sell Your Home

1. Depersonalize
Take down your precious photoes and momentos. Buyers need to be able to see themselves living in your house and sometimes can't look beyond your personal items and become distracted.

2. De-clutter
Start packing now. This will allow potential buyers to focus on your home rather than your things as well as make your home appear more spacious.

3. Organize Closets and Cupboards
With winter finally behind us, start packing up your winter clothing. Overflowing storage areas gives the buyer the impression there isn't enough space.

5. Remove or replace favourite items like chandeliers, drapes, mirrors and other fixtures

6. Make minor repairs
Touch up paint, replace burnt out light bulbs, fix leaky faucets.

7. Make the house sparkle
Wash floors, counters, appliances, baseboards. Vacumn. Hang fresh towels.

8. Get the windows cleaned
First impressions are everything. Windows are one thing many sellers don't even consider

9. Check your curb appeal
Ensure that the outside of your home looks inviting. Rake leaves, clean out garden beds. If need be, add some plants for a pop of colour.

10. Leave the lights on and window coverings open
A wll lit home gives a "homey" impression.

11. Play music softly in the background
To create a little atmosphere, tune your radio to a classical station. Turn it down so you can barely hear it in the background. 

12. Try not to be home
Buyers may feel uncomfortable and they might not be as receptive toward viewing your home. Visit the local coffee house, or take the kids to the local park. If you absolutely cannot leave, try to remain in an out of they way area of the house and do not move from room to room. Always refer any questions to your agent.
