Declutter your kitchen for maximum appeal!

Sellers often ask their Realtor what they should do before putting their home on the market. This week on The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty blog there was a post with some great suggestions.  The post was titled, Five Tips for Listing your Home.

1. Elevate curb appeal. Winter’s harsh conditions may have the exterior of your home looking a little worse for wear. Power wash your home, walkways, porches, fences, driveway, deck and all other outside surfaces. Freshen landscaping by picking up fallen leaves, broken branches, and other debris, then bring your yard back to life with seasonal plantings and a fresh layer of mulch.

Lights, trimmed hedges and clean front yard will make a buyer want to see more.

2. Clean out, declutter and repair. Buyers want to imagine themselves living in their own home, not yours, so remove all personal items such as photos, quirky collections, knick-knacks and most art objects. Fresh paint in a light and bright neutral color provides an immaculate blank slate for buyers. For the most part, today’s buyers are not looking for a project. Consult with your Realtor about which repairs are needed to make sure your home is in tip-top shape to attract desired buyers.
