5 Rules For Preparing Your Home For Optimal Showing
Rule 1: De–personalize.
This process reduces distractions yet make focal points, bold art, & minimal small decor items.
Do not neglect clutter – You need a second opinion to look past what you are used to seeing every day.
Remove any attached items from the home that you do not want to transfer to the new owner. If you have a vintage light fixture you want to take with you, remove it prior to the photoshoots.
Rule 2: Maximize.
Closets – clear unnecessary clutter, use boxes stacked together to show order and space, use matching hangers, modernize the space for a more luxurious feel.
Front/back yard furnished into useable square footage – landscaped and cleaned up. No hoses/old pots. Do not neglect outside, new sod, fresh flowers, clean corners, and hanging lights.
Go through pantry and refrigerator. Make it sparkle and orderly. Make sure there are no odors.
