In a competitive housing market, how do you prepare your home to elicit an "I LOVE it!" response from buyers who are touring many properties? How do you make them fall in love with your home?
The first step to promoting interest in your property is to create curb appeal. Start by cleaning up your yard and driveway. Plant seasonal flowers for color, rake leaves & branches and keep tools & toys where they belong.
The next step for an irresistible home involves the minimalist approach of "de-personalizing" so that buyers can respond to the essential features of the house without being distracted by evidence of your ownership. Personal memorabilia such as family photographs, awards and trophies, collectibles and pieces of much-loved but mismatched antique furniture should be placed in storage or tucked away.
Decorate your home for showing as if the buyers are esteemed guests. Place your best tablecloth and a fresh floral centerpiece on your dining room table. Adorn the beds with your most elegant linens and refresh bathrooms. Build a fire in the fireplace and play soft music.
Collaborate with a real estate agent you trust to get your home ready for its date with the new owner!
