Tips For Dressing Your Home For Sale!

Selling your house might be the largest financial decision you make for your family. Once you decide to list your property, you have to ensure it is in its best condition to obtain the highest value possible in today's market.  Here are some points on how to highlight your home's strengths:

Repainting your home is a great way to give it a fresh look! If you decide to do so, ensure you select a white or neutral colour that will appeal to nearly all buyers! 



Lighten your home up! Keeping all the curtains open and adding new light fixtures will effectively aid in brightening up your house. Increasing the voltage and changing the type of light bulb you use will help improve the brightness of the light fixtures you already have. The lighting in a home is one of the key things buyers look for, so make sure you do not skip this tip!

Keep your home clean during showings! Make sure your home is uncluttered and put things you do not need in storage where it will not be seen. This will allow your home to be show at its full potential and make it appear much larger.                                                                                                                                                                              

Focus on the minor repairs.  Many sellers focus heavily on renovating a part of their home while neglecting other smaller repairs that are needed. Always ensure that things such as damp patches are taken care of, as these can be points of concern for buyers. In addition, make certain your washroom is in top condition. Easily revamp your washroom by changing the shower curtain, removing any stains in the tub, adding scented candles and a fresh set of towels.

Landscape your yard! While trying to sell your home make sure the lawn is kept trimmed and the garden is neat. Watering the grass to keep it green and planting flowers in your garden will drastically improve the appearance of your home, making it more appealing to buyers.
