During the preparation and sales process I received much good advice from my real estate agent and from watching the home staging shows on HGTV. I am going to share them with you. They are all frugal, money producing and, hopefully, time saving.
If you are thinking of selling your home you need to find someone with an unbiased eye that will be brutally honest with you. They should not be someone that is afraid of hurting your feelings. They may be a friend, family member or real estate professional.
Have them come over to your house and do a walk through. They should give you their first impressions of your house; both from the outside and inside.
Is the house neat and tidy or cluttered?
|Cluttered With Personal Items|
Does the house give the impression of being up to date or is it hopelessly old fashioned?
|Outdated Southwestern Style|
Is it over decorated with a style that is too personal?
|May Be Beautiful To You, But Not To A Buyer|
When a buyer walks into your home they should feel that your home is filled with light, open and uncluttered and immaculately maintained. Does your home feel this way?
