When you’re trying to sell your home, it’s important to do everything possible to make it as appealing as possible to prospective buyers. Here are a few tips you can use to showcase your home’s potential.


Make sure anything that needs fixing in your home is taken care of before any walk-throughs or showings. No one wants to see a house with cracked drywall or dripping faucets.

Make sure all the lights have working bulbs and the ceiling fans work. Fix sticking doors and jams, often all they need is a little sanding to make for a smooth fit.

Fix broken windows and make sure the toilets function properly. If they need it, put a fresh coat of paint on the walls.


Shampoo the carpets, wax the hardwood, and mop the linoleum. Dust the furniture and televisions. Wash the windows, inside and out. Clean appliances, wipe fixtures and countertops, and vacuum.


Get rid of it. Find a place away from your home like a storage space or even a friend or family member’s garage. Put your stuff there. But be considerate and box it up neatly.

Get rid of some older or less attractive furniture. Then take advantage of that new space to make your home appear wider and roomier. Put the family photos away, and lock up the kids’ toys and pet things.

The Lawn-

Keep your lawn and garden neat and tidy when trying to sell a house. Plant a few things to beautify it, but don’t get it too cluttered. Just keep it simple and make it neat and squared away.
