Finally deciding to put your house on the market can be an exciting time but also a stressful one. You are excited to move onto the next chapter in your life, but know that a lot of work needs to be done before you can sell. Don’t worry, though, here are a few tips to get your house show ready.

Add Mirrors

One of the best ways to bring life into any room is by using mirrors. The advantage of mirrors in any room is that they make the room larger. Part of getting your home ready to sell is creating space that conveys an inviting feeling. The quickest way to create this feeling is by adding mirrors to the rooms in your home. The one thing to pay attention to when you are adding mirrors to any room is the image it is reflecting. If you have a mirror reflecting something unsightly such as a television might not be the most appealing.

Clear Out All That Clutter

The most challenging step in the process of getting your home ready for a show is the decluttering process. Yes, it was a good idea to compact the DVD collection you are proud of next to the television. But, to the eye and anyone that might be interested in buying your home it just looks unpleasing. Getting rid of things can be tough, so if you’re not quite ready, tidying up all countertops can go a long way in decluttering a space.

When in Doubt Paint the Room

One of the main things a buyer looks for when purchasing a home is the work they are going to have to do. Having a room that hasn’t been painted might cause your home to be on the market a few more weeks. If you are not sure what to paint your walls, a simple white can never steer you wrong, and it will allow the buyer the opportunity to be free to choose any color.

Bonus Tip

An easy tip to remember when getting ready to show your home is to turn on your lights and let as much light in as you can. Opening the curtains and turning on lamps can create a very warm and inviting environment for prospective buyers.
