Where to Begin?
Here is a technique that costs you almost nothing, but will not only give you a quicker sale, it can add extra money to the selling price.
Put yourself in the home buyer’s shoes. What do you want to see when you first walk in a house?
Beyond neat, clean appearance, most buyers want to see how their furniture will fit in. It is not uncommon, for example, for buyers to measure the living room to see if their couch will fit nicely.
If your house is filled with your own clutter, buyers won’t be able to visualize putting their things in the house. Your things will be in the way.
Remember: Buyer’s have no imagination. You can tell a buyer that her dining room table will fit in your dining room, but if your oversized dining room table is crowding the room with barely space for chairs around it, she is not likely to believe you.
You will want some furniture in each room, otherwise the rooms tend to look small. Furniture makes rooms not only livable, but gives them proportion.
Remember: Too much furniture and too much clutter makes the room look small. In addition it makes it look like yours- not theirs. You want buyers to see each room as their own. The more they see themselves fitting in, the more they will want your house and the better the offer will be.
