How To Prepare Your Home For Showings To The Public

When preparing the home for showings, the goal is to put the home’s best foot forward to prospective buyers.

Staging your home

Staging your home involves getting the outside and inside of the home in top shape.  You can hire a service to help de clutter the home so you don’t convey that lived-in look. Now’s the time to divest yourself of some of your furnishings, collections and heirlooms by either placing them in temporary storage or simply giving them to friends or family members who will enjoy them.

Keep treasured heirlooms out of sight

Another good reason for staging the home is to put some of those treasured possessions and family heirlooms away so the public does not have access to them when viewing your home.

Make repairs

It is important to fix those little things around the house that are in need of repair. Does the faucet leak? Do the doors stick? Does the house need a fresh coat of paint? Items like these can leave a negative impression in the buyer’s mind.

Curb appeal

The curb appeal of the home is very important as this is the first thing a buyer sees when approaching the home for the first time and first impressions are very important.  Make sure the grass is mowed and the yard is clean and free of debris. Hiring a company who specializes in staging for the mature home seller can remove a great deal of stress and help the family deal with other more pressing issues.
