Home Decorating Tips for Sellers

Learn How to Sell Your Home Before It Hits the Market

Listing your home on the market can seem overwhelming, but with a Realtor or a real estate agent on your side, the process can be a breeze.  They can provide valuable advice, such as how to stage your home, what repairs to make, and what features to emphasize. They can also work with you to set an asking price and market your home to potential buyers.

However, before you list your home on the market, you may want to consider decorating it even before it hits the market. It’s important to take the time to prepare your home for the market. Your first steps should include the following:

Get Rid of Junk 

If you are ready to sell your home, you need to commit to getting your home in the right shape. Cleaning, de-cluttering, and depersonalizing your home are all essential steps in the process; they cannot be overlooked in this market. Your goal should be to list a ready-to-sell home and not a work in progress. 

 Firstly, clean your home thoroughly and begin the decluttering process. Cleaning shouldn’t just be a quick once-over, however. You need to either hire a cleaning service or get down and dirty yourself because a deep clean is necessary to make your home sparkle. Floors need to be mopped, countertops cleaned, and every surface scrubbed til it shines. Walls should be washed, and windows should be vacuumed and dusted to ensure the utmost cleanliness. 

Next, make sure every room is tidy, neat, and free of any personal items or clutter. It will be tough for a potential buyer to visualize themselves in a new space if they can already see someone who exists in that space. 

Make the Necessary Repairs

We are no longer in a market where you can get away with selling an unrepaired or outdated home as-is. Additionally, investing in minor repairs and upgrades can also help increase your home’s value, so that is another bonus to consider when shelling out the cash for these items! Whether you need to replace countertops, fix sinks, or get rid of outdated furniture, you need to make the investment in your home if you want it to sell.  These small investments can make a big difference when selling your home, and in some cases, they can help it sell faster.

Enter the Staging Process and Hit the Market

Once your home has been repaired, you can work with your Realtor to stage it to show off its best features. Staging your home can help potential buyers envision themselves living there and can help you sell your home quickly. Additionally, staging your home can help your listing stand out amongst the competition and attract more buyers.
