Second Secret to a Successful Sale

Got a sec? Great. All alone? Perfect! It's time to lean in real close cause I’m back with Secret #2 in my 5 Secrets of a Successful Sale. ⁣

⁣Secret #1: It’s your kitchen that’ll sell your home.⁣

Secret #2: Declutter, depersonalize, and stage your home.⁣

⁣Buyers must be able to picture themselves living in YOUR home. Give 'em a chance to do just that by decluttering, depersonalizing, and staging your home:⁣

⁣• Declutter: Picture your home as a vacation rental. If you wouldn’t see it out in a rental, you shouldn’t see it out during a showing.⁣

• Depersonalize: A few modest photos here and there is fine, but pack away the excess, take down oversized monograms, and remove wall letters from the kids’ rooms.⁣

• Stage: If you’re using the dining room as a craft area or home office, reset it as a space to dine. Also, get rid of unnecessary furniture to make your living room feel airy and spacious. Staging doesn't have to be costly or complicated — it simply helps buyers make sense of your home and see its potential.⁣

⁣When it comes to getting your home ready for the market, less is ALWAYS more. Need advice on how to get your home prepped? I’d love to help. ⁣⁣

Stop back by tomorrow for secret #3!
