With news of the big move I've gotten into Sell the House Mode. I may or may not have become a crazy give everything to Goodwill so we have less to move type person, and may or may not be driving my husband nuts. But things are tough right now and I want our house to look as good as it can against all the competion.
I've watched those "Designed To Sell" shows on HGTV to know the basics when it comes to house selling:
-Clean the clutter
-Neutral Paint Colors
-Make any outstanding repairs
I also hopped on the internet and found this useful list. It's really thorough and I'll try to get to most of the big points.
Like cleaning out closets. Done!
Newly Painted Sunroom
Good Bye LSU Themed Loft/ Office
Hello SW Liveable Green! The loft is an off shoot of the sunroom so I thought the colors should be the same.
Trying to declutter all the baby stuff!
Trying to make our bathroom look halfway presentable.
Touching up some old paint projects.
Cleaning our appliances, the list goes on and on.
And when someone is coming to view the house:
-Have all windows open so the home feels light and bright
-Make sure everything is clean and spotless!
-Take down family photos. People need to envision themselves in your home, it's hard to do with photos of family everywhere.
-Fresh Flowers don't hurt either. I also replaced my paint chip art project in the dining room with a mirror to help bounce light around the room and make it feel larger.
And hope and pray for the best!!!!!!!!!
