Tips for selling your Rockland County NY Home

18 01 2008

The spring real estate season is just around the corner for Rockland County Homeowners.  It may seem like winter is afoot but before you know it the flowers will be in bloom and the real estate market will be in full swing. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about getting your home ready for sale.

Taking care of minor renovations early will ensure that your home is ready to be photographed and ready to be listed.   Here are some helpful home staging tips to consider before listing your home for sale.

  • Declutter – Clutter eats equity!  It is important to get your home as streamlined as possible.  Potential buyers want to be able to view the floor plan and architecture, not your distracting treasures.  Take a few days and pack things that will detract from your home.
  • Neutralize – Bold colored walls, floral wall paper, stylized rooms may be perfect for your personality but they do not have universal appeal.  You do not want buyers to remember your home for its quirky decorating – the house should be the star.  Neutral colors have a broader appeal.
  • Sniff test – Your home should not have any identifiable odors from pets, food or mildew.  It is important to address these problems now, trying to cover them with deodorizers is never the answer.
  • Emotional Connections – Now that your home is decluttered and neutral it is time to add those homey touches that will make buyers fall in love with the home.

It is often best to hire a professional home stager to assist you with this process.  It is hard to take and objective look at your home.  Buyers today are savvy and their expectations are high.  Staging your home will ensure that it is in show condition and that you get top dollar when selling.

A very nice staging job. I also liked the fact that you mention dealing with emotional entanglements. This is also a type of clutter which many people don’t think to clear out when preparing their home for sale. Nicely written article.
