Cincinnati, OH, June 11, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Preparing a home for sale properly can net considerably more money at closing. Some rooms in the home are more important than others in the preparation process and some home improvements are a much better investment as you prepare to sell your home. Don't spend money unnecessarily, call Eric Lowry, CEO and Listing Specialist for The Lowry Team today to arrange a consultation. In the meantime, here are some general steps that can be implemented right now.
The first step in staging the home is to trim the bushes around the property. It is important to keep the lawn neatly mowed. The curb appeal of a home is the potential home buyer's first impression of the home. Make it a good one!
Next, remove any clutter from the house. Start packing up anything that is not currently being used. It is going to have to be packed up anyway, so let's get started! The house will appear larger, neater and more organized.
If one of the bedrooms has been transformed into something other than a bedroom, such as a sewing room or exercise room, change it back. If the house is listed as a three bedroom, the home buyer should easily be able to visualize the three bedrooms.
Clean up and organize the counters in the bathrooms and kitchen. They should appear, neat, clean and sparkly! Put items that are generally sitting out on the counter tops away out of sight.
After all of the steps are completed, do one last final clean up. Clean the house from top to bottom, yes, even the windows! Repair any nicks to the walls and cover them with a fresh coat of neutral paint.
Lastly, add a pop of color. This could be some colorful towels in the half bath or fresh flowers in a vase in the entrance way. Add color outside by planting some annuals. Place a new welcome mat by the from door or add a splash of color with a pillow on a chair.
Not only can staging the home properly bring more money to the closing table, generally it will sell faster too. Contact, Eric Lowry, CEO and Listing Specialist for The Lowry Team to set up a free consultation.
