Make sure to clear out the clutter. You want your home to shine above and beyond the other homes on the market. Remember that the average home buyer is going to look at 10-20 homes that meet their criteria before they make a decision. This is a case of first impressions. If you don’t make the list of top 2-3 homes on their list, your home will be forgotten and discarded from their search. You usually only get one chance. Make it count.
By taking 4-5 hours upfront to fix up your home and stage it a bit can go a long way. Even $200 – $500 in staging can end up netting you thousands more on your house. It is so worth it.
