Getting ready to list your home in Massachusetts may have you feeling unsure of where to begin. Right now, your personal belongings fill your home and when you look at other listings, they appear so organized and appealing.
Making your home as marketable as possible does not have to be as challenging as some may have you think. A few simple strategies can help you transform your space and make it look sale-ready before you know it.
Change up the paint
Paint can do wonders to elevate the look of your home. According to HGTV, painting is both inexpensive and easy. If you do not want to paint on your own, you can hire a painter to get the job done for you. You can use paint to highlight appealing features of your home. Using complementary colors, you can create accents that brighten the space and make it appear larger and more welcoming.
If you already need to do touch-up paint throughout your home, consider giving it a fresh coat of paint altogether. Experts suggest sticking with more neutral tones to help interested buyers envision the space as their own.
De-personalize the space
If you are like a lot of people, a good portion of the clutter in your home is probably personal belongings. You can tidy up your space just by de-personalizing it. This strategy also enables you to protect your privacy. Remove photographs off of the walls, put away loose clutter like keys and papers, and make the beds. You may even consider moving some of your belongings into a storage space so you can stage your home without having to move things around each time you have a showing.
Other things you can do to improve your home’s marketability include keeping your lawn manicured and replacing burned-out lights. You should always address pet issues prior to showings including vacuuming up hair and picking up droppings.
