Serious prospective buyers want to wander through your home and imagine what it’d be like to live there. That pleasant activity will be much easier for them if the home is clean and uncluttered. Move all your favorite gadgets off the kitchen countertops and try to store any unnecessary furniture at another location. If the living room will look bigger and more inviting without your old, tattered, overstuffed favorite chair in the corner, put it in storage.
Carpets and windows should be cleaned, and a fresh coat of paint in the kitchen may help to make it pop. The front door area is particularly important because that creates their first impression. Here in South Florida, you can find blooming potted flowers any time of the year. Have an attractive pot or two outside, and they’ll walk in your house with a smile on their face.
