How To Make Your House Stand Out When On The Market Part 2

How To Make Your House Stand Out When On The Market Part 2

Here is Part 2 on how to stage your house, remember we went throe 5 stages and i have 5 more for you...

           6.Remove/Replace Favorite Items.

If you want to take window coverings, built-in appliances or fixtures with you, remove them now. If the chandelier in the dining room once belonged to your great grandmother, take it down. If a buyer never sees it, she won't want it. Once you tell a buyer she can't have an item, she will covet it, and it could blow your deal. Pack those items and replace them, if necessary.

           7.Make Minor Repairs.

  • Replace cracked floor or counter tiles.

  • Patch holes in walls.

  • Fix leaky faucets.

  • Fix doors that don't close properly and kitchen drawers that jam.

  • Consider painting your walls neutral colors, especially if you have grown accustomed to purple or pink walls.

    (Don't give buyers any reason to remember your home as "the house with the orange bathroom.")

  • Replace burned-out light bulbs.

  • If you've considered replacing a worn bedspread, do so no


  • 8.Make the House Sparkle!

    • Wash windows inside and out.

    • Rent a pressure washer and spray down sidewalks and exterior.

    • Clean out cobwebs.

    • Re-caulk tubs, showers and sinks.

    • Polish chrome faucets and mirrors.

    • Clean out the refrigerator.

    • Vacuum daily.

    • Wax floors.

    • Dust furniture, ceiling fan blades and light fixtures.

    • Bleach dingy grout.

    • Replace worn rugs.

    • Hang up fresh towels.

    • Bathroom towels look great fastened with ribbon and bows.

    • Clean and air out any musty smelling areas. Odors are a no-no.


  • 9.Scrutinize.

    • Go outside and open your front door. Stand there. Do you want to go inside? Does the house welcome you?

    • Linger in the doorway of every single room and imagine how your house will look to a buyer.

    • Examine carefully how furniture is arranged and move pieces around until it makes sense.

    • Make sure window coverings hang level.

    • Tune in to the room's statement and its emotional pull. Does it have impact and pizzazz?

    • Does it look like nobody lives in this house? You're almost finished.Image title

  • 10.Check Curb Appeal.

    If a buyer won't get out of her agent's car because she doesn't like the exterior of your home, you'll never get her inside.

    • Keep the sidewalks cleared.

    • Mow the lawn.

    • Paint faded window trim.

    • Plant yellow flowers or group flower pots together. Yellow evokes a buying emotion. Marigolds are inexpensive.

    • Trim your bushes.

    • Make sure visitors can clearly read your house number.Image title
