Get Storage

De-cluttering your home is essential. But you can't just shove everything in the closets or storage room, or the shed or garage for that matter. Get all unneeded items off the property and into storage. This serves tow purposes - making the home look cleaner, and also easier for you to move into your new home since you're already packed. Also make sure to store personal photos and items as these can distract potential buyers from the seeing the home as their own home.

Professional Staging and Photography

The first representation of your home that most people will see is on the internet. That means photos. And of course the photos will need to be of a well-presented home. The comfort and ease of shopping for a home on the internet means that your home needs to stand out.  And if you don;t have money for professional staging, then do your best and have a friend or your agent give you honest insight on how your property looks from a buyer's perspective.

Lighten Up

The darker the home, the more depressing it will seem.  Make it brighter by using artificial and natural lighting.  Buy higher wattage bulbs if needed and replace burned out bulbs. Open the windows.  You can even paint the rooms more neutral colors, like a neutral gray.
