Every time I am asked out to view a home, it never fails that the seller will ask, “What can we do to get our house ready for the market?”
Now, there are MANY answers to this question. You could get an array of things to do or not to do as you have your home on the market. Most agents will give tips on decorating, taking down family photos, making your house flow better, and etc. All excellent tips. I tend to simplify things into one sentence: “Prepare your home the same way you would for a very important guest.”
Now that again can be interpreted in many ways. But, typically anyone about to host an extremely important guest will make their house as presentable as possible. If you have ever been invited to a friends home, they always try to impress, and that is what you the seller need to keep in mind when you are selling. You are “dressing to impress” but instead of yourself, it is your home you are dressing. Therefore, take a step back and consider what would it take to impress you about your home? What features do you consider your “finest?” Once you know those, then you need to take a few moments to accentuate those areas in the best way you know how. If you hit a road black on ideas for accentuating those positives, always feel free to ask the agent to help navigate that road.
Once you have “dressed to impress,” then your house is ready for the market and if done right, you should be on the hunt for your own new home soon.
