2. Your back yard or views. If your home has something very special about its lot and/or views, make absolutely sure those spaces look fantastic. Hire a great agent that will highlight those things with great photos, videos, and drone imagery to wow potential buyers.
3. The Living Room. Recent surveys of homeowners indicate most homeowners spend the majority of their time at home in their living room. So, it makes sense that these rooms must have the best appearance to attract a buyer to want to see and love your home. Here are some top tips for the living room: Position your sofa so that it is facing the door, if you cannot, then place a console table behind the sofa. Create a Focal Point – typically it’s the fireplace, draw attention to the farthest wall with a piece of art or decorative mirror. A Nice accent rug can be good but don’t use one with deep red colors. Neutral is always better. Soften the space with a few accessories – Things like oversize pillows, a soft blanket, 1 or two accent pieces on a coffee table. The Kitchen. Many say the kitchen is the heart of a home. So make sure it’s fresh, clean, all things off counters except the coffee pot, throw rugs removed, dish towels, and utensil display removed. And, here are some inexpensive ways to make your kitchen look expensive:
●Update the hardware
●Use lighter colors
●Replace broken cabinet doors
●Update the plumbing fixture
5. Master Bathroom. The master bedroom is a top space behind kitchens and living rooms. In general, buyers are looking for an organized and tidy master bath that has a spa-like feel that is calm, neutral with some storage space. Most homebuyers would like a 5 piece bath, If that is not possible, consider making sure the paint is bright and neutral, putting in good lighting, and updating the hardware to brushed nickel with solid surface counters.
6. Master Bedroom. Most buyers want a roomy master bedroom in neutral and tranquil colors. Make sure you remove clutter and excess furniture. Light and neutral bedding is most desirable
7. Closets and Garages. These spaces tend to create the most concern for home sellers. The good news is that most do not photograph closets and inside of garages. But during in house showings, buyers do want to see the size of the space.
