4 Easy Ways to Prepare Your Home for Sale, Mountain Home, Arkansas

If you’re listing a home for sale, the final selling price depends on the location and your real estate agent’s ability to draw in buyers. However, there are several steps you can take to make your house more appealing and create an environment buyers can imagine living in. Before putting it on the market, here’s what you should do.

4 Steps to Take Before Listing Your House

1. Create Curb Appeal

Before a buyer can fall in love with the floor plan or natural lighting, they have to be interested enough to come through the door. Plant fresh flowers along the walkway, trim back trees and bushes that block the view, and consider replacing the front door to make the house more inviting.

2. Depersonalize the Space

If your taste in art is particularly idiosyncratic, you might want to replace those pieces with something more generic before letting buyers in.

3. Paint the Walls

Many real estate agents advise homeowners to brighten rooms with a fresh coat of paint. Choose warm neutrals, especially for small spaces, and paint over any bright accent walls or other touches that might not appeal to most people.

4. Declutter the House

A good rule of thumb is to remove at least a third of the items in every room, including the shelves, furniture, and the contents of the closets. Not only will doing so make your house seem bigger, but you’ll also get a head start on packing.
