Dressing Up Your Home

Sixty seconds is all you have to create a good first impression. Here are detailed ways on how you can make your home attractive to potential buyers.

Outside the house:

  • Cut the grass and make sure it stays that way. Make the yard look neat by taking away clutter.

  • Pull out the weeds and put fresh mulch to flower beds.

  • Wooden fences must be painted new.

  • Make sure door handles are tight and clean.

  • Windows should be cleaned inside and out.

  • Powerwash the home's exterior

  • Gutters and downspouts should be firmly attached and functioning.

  • Paint the front door.

  • Put a new welcome mat.

  • Place potted flowers near the front door.

Inside the house:

  • Look at the furnitures in each room. Remove anything that looks "off" or anything that disrupts the design/theme. Take out any furniture that makes the room look smaller. Rent a storage unit if you have to.

  • Clean and organize cabinets, closets and bookshelves.

  • Inspect light fixtures and ceiling fans. Make sure they're clean and functional.

  • Wash the carpets.

  • Take away too many "personal stuff"; including wall hangings and knick-knacks.

  • Inspect plumbing system to make sure they're not leaking; and if so, have them fixed.

  • Repair torn screens, sticking doors, cracked caulking.

  • Clean and repaint if necessary walls and ceilings.

  • Replace worn cabinet and door knobs.

  • Replace discolored grout.

  • Replace broken tiles and worn countertops.

Additional details for showings:

  • Turn on all the lights.

  • Open drapes and shutters during the day.

  • If you have pets, secure them outside.

  • Use new towels for bathrooms.

  • Use new beddings for bedrooms.

  • Replace old lamps or lampshades.

  • Play soft background music.

  • Light the fireplace.

  • Use a comforting scent, such as apple spice or vanilla.

  • Set the dining room table for a fancy dinner.

  • Do not stay in the house while it is being shown.
