Tip #1 - Watch TV: There are a lot of good ideas found on home/garden and real estate shows. And they really can help you to turn your home into what buyers are looking for. Pay attention to the little things that will make a big difference in your home. Furniture placement can help a smaller room to appear bigger or a cluttered room look comfortable.

Tip#2 - Fresh Coat of Paint: Painting can make your home more appealing to a buyer, it also will add value. Use neutral color choices and decorate with colorful items to give focal points in bedrooms, living rooms, etc. Make those small repairs in your home, it can be a huge benefit that shouldn't cost you too much. By doing the little things and you can get big results

Tip #3 - Clean it Up: The best thing you can do today, right now...clean your home from top to bottom, inside and outside, and get rid of all the clutter. You can always ask family and friends for their help and then provide a lunch or party to reward them for their efforts. You will see a big difference in how buyers will look at your home once it is clean, neat and organized.

Tip #4 - Generalize: Take down all the fridge magnets, kids art work and shopping lists from your refrigerator. Also remove all your personal family photos. These are distractions to your potential buyer. You want them to see your home and not be distracted by your personal things.

Tip #5 - See what the Competition is up to: Go to as many Open House's as you can in and around your neighborhood. So many property owners that are trying to sell their homes do not know their competition. You may know the square footage, the lot size, what the asking price is and some other features of the homes for sale in your area. But, knowing if your competition is clean, organized or even staged will help you to decide what you need to do in order for your home to sparkle and shine to get your buyers attention! Take notice of their curb appeal of the home from the street. Compare that to your curb appeal. Do the same for the back yard and other landscaping. I hope this may be helpful.
