Selling your home during the winter can be tricky, but also very beneficial. Here are some tips to make sure you properly prepare your home for the market.
First, take a quick look at your neighbors’ homes. See what you like about their landscaping or what appeals to you about their home, because those things will also appeal to the buyer.
Make sure your lawn is freshly cut and your bushes are pruned. It’s also best to make sure your flower beds have a dark mulch and are free and clear of any weeds.
Don’t underestimate the importance of your front door. You need to make sure it is free and clear of any dust, rust, or cobwebs. You might even want to give it a fresh shine by oiling it. After all, the front door is one of the first things a buyer will see.
Now that you’ve got some great ideas on how to spruce up your exterior, let’s move on to some tips to make the inside of your home look just as fantastic.
The first thing you need to do is stage your home. There is a beautiful example of a staged home in the video above. A professional stager will come in for a 90-minute consultation and take all of the guesswork out of www. You have enough stress on your shoulders, don’t let staging be one of them.
