Making a great first impression on potential buyers can go a long way to selling your home quickly. With that in mind, you'll want to evaluate your home for any potential issues that might turn buyers off. In many cases, you can correct problem areas with a little effort and a minimum budget.
The most important things to consider are:
Natural Light - Open the blinds and draperies to bring in natural light to showcase your home's best features and make the home feel airy and open.
Clutter - remove as much non-essential furniture, clothing and decorative items as you can. A clutter-free home is easy to move through and often feels more spacious.
Personal Items - remove any personal items such as family photos, knick knacks, or anything else that might take away from the true beauty of your home.
Fresh Paint - one of the best ways to revitalize a room is by adding a fresh coat of paint. Choose neutral shades that dress up the room, yet still appeal to a large number of potential buyers.
Carpeting / Flooring - installing new flooring or carpeting can give a room a fresh new look, while also eliminating potential odors.
