Staging your home and getting professional photographs will help you catch the interest of those who are searching online for homes like yours. The effort doesn’t stop there, however, because you want to keep your home show ready.
Create a plan for staying on top of daily clutter and routine cleanings. If you have small children, make a game out of quick clean-up times and store toys that are not normally played with often.
🖼️ Tip 3 – Depersonalize the House
It’s a good idea to remove personal items from the home before you list the property for sale because you want potential buyers to easily see themselves living in that space. Begin by removing personal photographs, family keepsakes, collections, and anything that could be seen as controversial.
