Get your home (Show) entertainment ready in five easy steps.
Tessa, a listing coordinator with the Nick McLean real estate group, explains the 5 most important things you can do to get your home show-ready.
This means taking everything off surfaces like bathroom counters and kitchen counters. Organizing kitchen pantries and other closets that buyers will want to see.
And this is a big-ticket item. You want to change the message from welcome to “our” home—> To welcome to “your” home. Make sure you take down personal family photos from your walls and your fridge. Remove any awards or certificates, including any trophies or collectibles.
This means wiping down countertops making sure that your mirrors, windows, and doors have all been cleaned with special attention to the kitchen appliances, especially stainless steel because finger smudges can show easily.
I think my personal favorite and often overlooked is odor. We want to ensure that your home doesn’t smell too much like your pets or too much Febreze. Open the windows a few minutes before showing and air out the house.
- Add some fresh flowers
Flowers add color and warmth to your home and help your home show better. They’re very inviting, and they’re not that expensive…if you do have to pay for them.
