  • Can the clutter.We have written about this before haven’t we? Organize the garage! Pack away the clutter and organize your home! Perhaps install a custom closet?
  • Let there be light! – Take down any heavy drapes and clean those windows – you will be amazed how much extra light that is let in.
  • Clean, Clean, Clean! – Shampoo soiled carpets, Scrub the front door. Repaint scuffed walls. Tidy up the lawn and trim the shrubs – a clean home is a happy home!
  • Finish the “honey do” list. Fix everything that is in need of repair and we mean everything! A home inspector will pick up the smallest of things so be thorough!
  • Enhance the view. Erect a fence or plant shrubbery to improve or obscure the view of unattractive nearby properties or streets. If you have a great view then you definitely want to make the most of it – its what made you fall in love with the place, right?
  • Open your house on Weeknights – Holding an open house on Wednesday may attract a different crowd of buyers than the weekend casual shoppers.
  • Ask for criticism from all angles – Consult with buyers’ agents for their feedback. Talk to your agent and use their knowledge to your advantage.
  • Go out when your home is shown – Sellers should leave when their home is being shown so buyers and their agents can talk freely.
  • Rent to own. Give a potential buyer a little credit. Becoming a landlord may keep you from having to shoulder two mortgages and in a challenging market can pay dividends!
  • Drop the asking price. Talk to your agent about the best price your home suits in the current markeplace.

How about staging your home? Whichever options you select, good luck!
