Clutter Be Gone!
One of the best ways to maximize viewability is to declutter your home. Buyers want to
be able to see themselves living in your space, and that’s tough to do when there’s
clutter everywhere. So, take some time to go through and tidy up your belongings. It’s
important that your home looks neat before potential buyers come over.
Another tip is to focus on curb appeal. This is the first thing that buyers will see when
they pull up to your home, so you want to make sure that it looks good! One of the best
things you can do is rake your leaves. A well-kept yard will make a good impression on
potential buyers, and it will show them that you actively take care of your home.
It’s also important to show potential buyers that the home/cottage is prepared for the
winter months. This means taking steps to protect your home from the cold weather.
Some tips for winterizing a home include:
• Insulating your windows and doors
• Installing storm windows and doors
• Wrapping your water pipes
• Adding insulation to your attic and basement
• Heating your garage
By taking these steps, you’ll make sure that your home stays warm and cozy during the
colder months. Buyers love to see these preparations!
It’s That Easy!
Whether you are preparing for an in-person showing, or for photos to be taken of your
space, decluttering, maximizing curb appeal, and winterizing your home are all great
touches. Keep these tips in mind as you prepare to put your house on the market, you’ll
be sure to impress potential buyers! These are just some of our favorite tips, but we
always encourage our clients to get creative. Creating an aesthetic for your home or
cottage should be treated as an artistic opportunity, not a tiresome chore.
