MORE Tips for a Successful Showing: It’s the Little Things!

Continuing the list from my last list:

  • Use “extra” rooms wisely
    • If you have been using a spare bedroom as a dumping ground for odd pieces of furniture and boxes of junk, it’s time to clean it up. Each room should have a clearly defined purpose, so think about what potential buyers might like to see here. An office? A guest room? Another kids’ room? Whether you buy inexpensive furnishings, rent them, or borrow some from friends, making a real room out of a junk room will have a big payoff.
  • Use only perfect personal accents
    • Especially in the bathroom, it is important that anything left out for visitors to see is pristine. Put away your old, worn robe. Look at every detail with a visitor’s eye – bars of soap should be fresh and clean, towels spotless, the garbage always emptied (you get the idea).
  • Entice people to explore the whole house
    • By placing something that draws the eye at the top of the stairs, in hallways or in corners, you can pique curiosity and keep potential buyers interested throughout a whole home tour. A piece of artwork, a painted accent wall, a window seat, a vase of flowers, a hanging light or even a small, colorful rug can all work to draw the eye.
  • Show how you can use awkward areas
    • If you have any room beneath the stairs, or a nook or alcove anywhere in your home, try to find a unique way to show it off. By setting up a small work station, a home command center with a bulletin board, or built-in shelving, your awkward spot becomes another selling point.
