How to Prepare Your Home for the Market: 4 Tips From Oahu Movers, Ewa, Hawaii

Finding a new home is about much more than packing and moving your belongings. Most people also have to sell their former residence. M. Dyer & Sons in Pearl City has been helping families in Hawaii move for over 45 years; during this time, they have learned several helpful tips that can make selling a home go much smoother.

If you’re moving soon, here are a few suggestions from the professional movers to prepare your home for the market: 

  • Clean Everywhere: Dust or polish all your appliances, wash all windows, and sweep and mop the floors in every room. If you've already moved out or don't have time to get to all of these areas yourself, it’s a good idea to hire a cleaning service.
  • MovingAvoid Doing Anything That Can Create Strong Odors: If you’re about to move out of your home or are already showing it, avoid indoor activities that could create a lingering smell. Cooking bacon, for instance, creates a strong odor that tends to stick around for hours later.
  • Tidy Up: If you’re showing your home before you move out, remove any clutter that’s laying around. Put away the laundry, remove shoes from the entryway, and get rid of your pile of junk mail on the kitchen table. You don't want prospective buyers to get distracted from your home's actual features.
  • Paint The Walls: Even though you may have agonized over the ideal blue to go in your living room, you should repaint your home a plain off-white. This color can throw off prospective buyers who want to create an idea of what their own décor would look like in the room. The idea is to give viewers a blank canvas that’s versatile enough to fit their needs.
