While market conditions may not always be favorable when it comes time to trade in your home, there are a number of things that can be done done to attract more buyers and make your home more favorable in their eyes. Here are 5 things you can do to improve your presentation 

  • Enrich with color
    • Paint is affordable and it can make a big impression. Soft yellows and pale greens say “welcome,” lead the eye from room to room, and flatten skin tones. Tint ceilings in a lighter shade, and stay away from overly bright colors
  • Upgrade the kitchen and bathrooms
    • These are make-or-break rooms. They should be completely cleaned with updated hardware in order to make the best impression.

  • Clean out and organize closets.
    • Remove anything you don’t need or haven’t worn in a while. Closets should only be half-full so buyers can visualize fitting their stuff in.
  • Update window treatments
    • Buyers want light and views, not dated, heavy drapes. To diffuse light and add privacy, consider energy-efficient shades and blinds.
  • Screen hardwood floors
    • Refinishing is costly, messy, and time-consuming, so consider screening instead. This entails a light sanding – not a full stripping of color or polyurethane – then a coat of finish.
