Are you selling your home? If so, there are several things to consider when a potential buyer comes through the door.
1) Is cleaning the home good enough? In short, NO …being clean does not remove the clutter. To elaborate:
- We all love our “stuff” and think our stuff makes the home feel comfortable. But guess what? The potential buyers who visit your home will most likely think it is cluttered, messy, and uninviting.
- Buyers need to see a home in “model perfect” condition and they should be able to picture themselves living in your home. That means a minimum number of pictures of your family, no personal items like golf clubs or back packs, and no papers or mail sitting around.
- You want the house to look like they could bring all their “stuff” and move right in. When people see your collectibles, your kid’s toys, etc., they focus on that and forget about the house. Give them a reason to see your home as their home.
