Preparation is essential before you list your home for sale. Your cleaning, organizing, and staging efforts will help the home look its best, showing off the size and the top features. Below, learn some preparation steps, from a debris cleanout to staging, to increase buyers’ perceived value of your home and encourage a quicker sale with a higher market price.
3 Steps for Preparing a Home for a Sale
1. Hire a Debris Cleanout Company
Families accumulate clutter over the years of living in a home. Prepare for your move ahead of time by going through all your belongings and setting aside the items you don’t want to bring with you to your new home. Have a debris cleanout service take them to the dump for you. You can then pack up other items you don’t immediately need or wish to donate and temporarily place them in storage. Getting rid of that clutter makes the home look larger and cleaner, and can also prepare you for your upcoming move.
2. Bring in Professional Cleaning
Bring in a professional cleaning service to disinfect and organize your home for you. Ask for a “move-out cleaning” service, which will be more thorough than your average cleaning service. This thorough cleaning can remove deep-set grime from carpets, upholstery, and appliances to make the home look newer. You can also choose to have the outside of your home power washed. Include window washing as well, which will maximize how much natural light enters into the home.
3. Depersonalize & Stage
When buyers walk through the home, they should be able to envision themselves living there. Depersonalize the home by taking down all family photos, personal accents, religious items, and other items that might not appeal to a buyer. Hire a stager who can bring in neutral furniture and décor to complement the home and modernize it with the latest trends.
