Tips on How to Present Your Home For Sale

If you want your home to sell fast, prepping and staging is essential. It takes careful planning and attention to detail to get your house off the market quickly. Here are some helpful tips for selling your house by professionally sprucing up your home and turning it into an irresistible place.

Let go of your emotions

The majority of people become emotionally attached to their homes especially when they have lived in it for a long period of time. You are going to have to make a mental decision to detach yourself from your home. You will need to start seeing it as an item on a shelf on a store that could be bought by anyone.

De-personalise your home

The idea here is to turn your house into an ideal display home. This means that you are going to have to take all personal pictures and family heirlooms down. You don’t want to distract the buyers. They should be able to imagine their family photos on the wall. The home should appear so impersonal that anyone walking in has enough room to personalise it for themselves.

De-clutter your home

It is amazing how much junk people collect over the years. You want to make your home minimalist. If there are items in your house that you haven’t used in a year, you probably don’t need them. Sell them or throw them away. Here are some steps you can take to declutter:

  • Remove everything from the kitchen counters.
  • Pack all essential items out of sight.
  • Take books off the bookshelves (your buyer doesn’t need to know your beliefs)
  • Pack away any knick-knacks.
  • Think of decluttering as early packing.

Rearrange your closets

Buyers are nosey and they will open your storage cabinets and closets. Make sure everything is in order. You will send out a really bad message if piles of clothes fall out on a potential buyer's head! If you want potential buyers to think you have taken good care of your house, you want to show that you are an orderly person, this means that you are going to have to do the following:

  • Stack your dishes neatly
  • Turn all coffee mug handles in the same direction
  • Alphabetise spice jars
  • Colour coordinate your clothes
  • Button up your shirts and hang them in the same direction
  • Line your shoes up
