To sell your house, you want it to look perfect when potential buyers come to visit. But can you do that while you still live there? Lani Properties Corp of Honolulu, HI, shares a few ways to keep your home looking like a showroom while allowing for the comfort and space of your daily life. By following these tips, you can maintain maximum value without the inconvenience of vacating.
Striking a Balance Between Life & Display
1. Store Your Unused Possessions
A crowded room appears smaller. The more belongings you can store when buyers visit, the larger and more impressive your home will look. Tuck away anything you don’t use on a daily basis to minimize clutter. Doing so also leaves you less to clean when people come to view the house.
2. Clean Regularly
The best way to keep your home looking display-ready when potential buyers arrive is to keep it clean at all times. If you take out a book or game, remember to put it back after using it. Go over the stove top and oven right after cooking. Similarly, make your bed every morning and put away the dishes to ensure your space is always pristine. For laundry, wash your clothes at night, so they’re ready to fold and put away in the morning when you get up.
3. Get a Tote for Each Member of Your Family
Some frequently used home supplies shouldn’t be sitting out when potential buyers visit. Get each member of your family a tote bag for items like toothbrushes and combs to easily stored under the sink. That way, everyone can live with some measure of comfort and convenience while eliminating the space of personal effects.
