Thinking about selling your home and wondering what needs to be done to get ready? We have some quick and easy ideas for preparing your home for sale – this is also called “staging” your home.
The first step is to walk out to the curb and turn around and look at the front of your home. Seems simple, right? Now try looking at your home as a potential buyer. Are there small or large repair projects staring you in the face? Is the landscaping trimmed and weeded? Does the front entry appear to be neat and clean or does it remind you that you have work to do?
