Crank up the curb appeal

Pull weeds, rake leaves and trim overgrown shrubs, especially if they block windows or the path to your front door.

Paint

A fresh coat of neutral paint will make your home appeal larger, brighter.

Make repairs

Fix things like leaky faucets and sticky cabinets and replace old screens.

Rearrange

Make sure your furniture placement allows for easy traffic flow and shows the purpose of each room. 

Pack up

This includes personal photos and portraits.  Less is always more. 

Organize

When your house is meticulously organized, buyers will envision themselves living a stress free life in your home.

Clean

Clean every inch of your house and don't forget to make your windows and floors sparkle. 

Lighten up

Let the sun shine in, and turn on the lights.  Open all blinds or curtains and make sure the house is well lit. 

Temperature

Be sure potential buyers are comfortable when touring your home.  If it's freezing outside, leave the heat on.

Keep it ready to show

It may be a little inconvenient, but until you accept an offer, keep your home in tip-top shape at all times.
