Preparing to relocate consumes movers with lists and thoughts of packing and moving your items out of your house and into a new one. Looking for a new house in your new location to move into is another step. However, if you own a home, you also must sell your current house.
It’s not easy to sell your house when it’s in disorder because all of your household belongings are out with boxes everywhere. Make your house appealing by staging it for sell. Staging is removing the items that made your house a home and making your home appealing to the majority of buyers, like home builders do in newly built houses to show them to the public. In essence, you are arranging the house in a way that anyone who walks in the front door can quickly envision it as a move-in ready. Follow these easy steps to staging your home to prepare for selling:
Remove Personal Belongings – if at all possible, remove all of your household belongings before you show your house to sell it. Rent a storage unit if you are not quite ready to actually hire movers to relocate you just yet. After your personal belongings have been removed, don’t leave the house empty because houses tend to sell better when there are furnishings placed properly and with lots of clutter-free space. Accomplish this by renting the bare minimum of furniture to use until your house is sold.
Deep Clean – clean every nook and cranny. Break out the feather duster and the steamer vacuum cleaner that’s been tucked away for years. Clean like someone will be showing up with a white glove to test your work.
Go Neutral – neutral is not another word for bland. It’s merely toning down flares of personality and making it appealing to the masses. Something as simple as a new coat of beige painted over bright or colorful walls can do the trick.
