#9 - Look ORGANIZED
From the cabinets to the closets down to the dining room table, if a buyer sees everything organized, it shows them that you take good care of the rest of your home.

#8 - A Dry Basement Is A Good Basement
Make sure your basement is dry! If it smells damp, us a dehumidifier. Buyers are very wary of homes with wet basements and are generally concerned about mustiness and moisture.

We always recommend hiring professional cleaners to help you make your home "sparkle". Make sure to especially concentrate on your kitchen, bathrooms and windows.

#6 - FIX
Have a dripping faucet? Cracked tile? Loose handrail? This will send the wrong message to potential home buyers. Getting them fixed before your house goes on the market is a very smart idea.

# 5 - Curb Appeal
A little bit of landscaping goes a long way. Freshly cut beds, mulch, shrubs and flowering plants create curb appeal. At the very least you should mow and tidy up the yard.

Updated light fixtures, faucets & bathroom mirrors are just a few of the extreme changes that give a house a fresh, trendy feel without breaking the bank.

#2 - De-personalize
Remove items that your potential buyer won't be able to identify with. Replace personal photographs with aesthetically pleasing art and colors that highlight the furniture and decor.

#1 - STAGING
"Staging" is presenting your home in its best and most appealing light to the majority of home buyers. It gives buyers an emotional connection - which in turn - brings you an offer.
