If you’re thinking about selling your home your first step is to call us! Your second step is to get your home sell ready! Here are our best tips and tricks to help make this process easy and FAST!


  • Organize!

Buyers are looking for a house that is organized. They will snoop around and they want to see that the closets are spacious and the cabinets are large enough. If your storage spaces are clutter and packed full it will make them look smaller and will make a potential buyer shy away. A good rule of thumb is to have about half of the things in a storage space that you would normally have.

  • Make it Bright

Lighting is so important to homebuyers! Why? Because lighting makes a house seem open, clean, and bigger. Take down curtains, add higher wattage light bulbs, clean window and do whatever else you can to make sure that your home is as bright as possible!

  • Paint

This is something cheap that can really add to your home. Painting the walls or the kitchen cabinets something neutral will give old walls a fresh, new look. It’s something small that can add up quickly in the desirability of your home.

  • Clean!

This seems obvious but it’s important enough that it needs to be said. Almost nothing is more important to homebuyers than the cleanliness of a home. From the baseboards to the ceiling fan – getting all the details of the house clean is important. It could be worth it to you to get a professional carpet cleaner to come in or maybe a cleaning company to really ensure that everything is spotless. The bathrooms and kitchen are the most important!

  • Depersonalize

This is a hard step but it is very important. Before open houses it’s good to have very little personal touch in the home. The reason for this is that leaving your house as a blank canvas gives the potential buyers opportunity to see themselves in the home.


There you go! Those are the best ways to get your home sell ready! When you do this, we can take care of the rest for you! Don’t hesitate to give us a call when you’re thinking about selling your home and we can help you with everything you need.
