Once you have decided to put your borne on the market, try to view it from a buyer’s perspective. Here are six helpful steps to give your home a winning look:

Keep it clean. A good cleaning and fresh paint create the impression that your home has been well-cared for.

Keep it uncluttered. It will be neater and look larger. You want to convey a spacious feeling.

Keep it repaired. Fix it before the buyer inquires about it; the need for repairs can affect a potential sale.

Keep it neutral. Eliminate distracting colors and personal accessories; neutral colors and simple decor can help someone visualize their own belongings in a room.

Keep it dynamic. Make your home memorable!  From fresh flowers to fresh clean smells, your home should be inviting.

Showtime. Make a final check of every room.  Keep toys, clothes, food and other items picked-up.
