One of the most important steps in preparing your home for sale is to declutter it. We can’t stress enough the importance of a clutter-free home for showings and photography. Decluttering will not only make the rooms look more spacious, but it also keeps buyers from getting distracted and allows them to envision themselves in the space.
Our team will help you determine the best way to prepare and present your home. This process can look different for each seller, depending on whether they will be living in the home while it is on the market or if they are planning to move out before the home is listed for sale.
Below are some suggestions for starting the preparation process:
Starting the decluttering process early will save you time and stress later. You might even consider renting temporary storage space to set aside things you won’t need until after you’ve moved.
Home staging is the process of professionally furnishing and decorating a home and making it look as beautiful and appealing to buyers as possible. The intention is to accentuate the positive features of a home and show buyers the potential that the space holds. The research is clear that staging adds considerable value to a property. 53% of sellers’ agents say that staging a home decreases the amount of time a home spends on the market and 83% of buyers’ agents say that staging makes it easier for buyers to ‘visualize’ the property as their future home.
