Since there are a lot of homes on the market, homebuyers can afford to be picky. Homebuyers are on the hunt for the best and can overlook your home if it’s not in tip-top condition.

Before putting your home on the market, take time to get it picture-perfect. Homebuyers will be putting in offers left and right if you utilize these tips!

Improve Landscaping: Great curb appeal is crucial if you want to get your home noticed. Make a good first impression to potential homebuyers by mowing the lawn, weeding the garden and planting a few flowers.

Clean the Exterior: If the outside of your home looks messy, buyers might think you’ve been slacking on interior maintenance, as well. Give the home’s siding a good cleaning and don’t forget the gutters!

Make Repairs: Don’t you want your home looking as great as possible to potential buyers? Take care of major problems like broken windows or a leaky faucet that could turn buyers away.

Remove Clutter: A potential buyer needs to be able to envision their things in your home. Clean up knickknacks, photos and other personal items that may prohibit them from visualizing themselves in the home

Organize and Clean: Take the time to make things look neat in your home, especially your closet. A messy closet gives off the illusion there is not enough space. Also, your home should be spotless, from the floor to the tops of the ceiling fans!

Tone Down the Color: Bright colors might be exciting for a child’s bedroom, but it could deter potential buyers. Paint the walls a neutral color to create a blank canvas that will appeal to a wide range of homebuyers.

Eliminate Odors: Hide the litter box and spray an air neutralizer throughout your home. When you go to show your home, put out fresh flowers or bake a batch of cookies!
