Tips to Prepare your Home to Hit the Market

Historically, the months of February through June have the reputation for being the best months for selling your home! Perhaps you are considering moving and are feeling overwhelmed with the tasks at hand to ensure your space is in tip-top shape for potential buyers to see. From the first moment someone enters your home, you want them to feel like it’s clean and fresh. Any clutter and mess can easily distract potential buyers from envisioning themselves in the space. From cleaning and staging to repainting and depersonalizing, here are a few things you can do to get your home ready for the market!

  • First impressions are everything. Go ahead and hire Merry Maids to give each room in your house a deep clean to make sure everything is in pristine condition. A fresh home is a no brainer!
  • It is important that the lighting in your home is inviting. Go ahead and stock up on new light bulbs. All fixtures should be turned on.
  • Dust any hidden surfaces, including fans and blinds.
  • It is time for a refresh! Paint over any dark walls with a lighter shade. This will help to naturally open up any room.
  • Depersonalize your home. Remove most personal items (think photo albums, magazines, toys, awards, etc.) throughout each room. This will allow any potential buyers to see themselves and their belongings in the space!
Best of luck to you in your new journey and happy moving!
