In the above video, Parkland and South Florida real estate agent Michael Citron discusses four selling tips for home sellers to prepare their homes for sale. First, sellers should depersonalize the home by removing personal items including pictures and sports memorabilia. You want buyers to focus on the floor plan and views of your home and not be stuck and only remember the personal items.
Secondly, sellers need to declutter their homes by removing extra items in order to make the home appear as large and free-flowing as possible. Buyers may have multiple family members previewing the home, so the home should appear as large as possible.
Thirdly, home sellers should touch-up paint and paint over cracks and other holes, as buyers remember the details of a home. I always tell my sellers that paint in the can is worth hundreds of dollars, but on the walls, it is worth thousands. Finally, sellers should concentrate on their home’s curb appeal and put down mulch and flowers and plants, as this will be the first impression that buyers see when they approach your home. First impressions are everything, especially in real estate.
