The way your home appears to prospective buyers can make a strong and lasting impression. Your main goal should be to get buyers to picture themselves in your home and imagine what their lives would be like living there. Here are a few tricks of the trade that can help you do this:

Home Staging

In other words, detailing your home from top to bottom. This includes decluttering and removal of all the items in your home that make rooms feel smaller than they actually are. Tidy up cabinets, bookcases, closets and toys and put away personal items such as photographs, souvenirs, and other personal memories you may have around the home. If you have some empty rooms in your house, stage and decorate them with temporary, rented furniture and accent pieces. It is recommended that you keep it simple and classic in order to avoid clashing with the taste of a potential buyer.

Preparing For An Open House

A successful open house is key for generating quick interest in your home. Your Royal LePage Burloak REALTOR® will assist you in preparing for the open house. Make your rooms bright and airy by opening blinds and windows and turning on lights in darker rooms. Help potential buyers imagine themselves in your home by setting the dining table and putting out fresh flowers. Leave some refreshments out and for your own security, store all of your valuables in a secure location. When the open house is over, your REALTOR® will provide you with feedback so you can make a few tweaks before your next one!
