Today we’ll talk about some regrettable decisions to steer clear of when preparing your home for sale.
Having bright colors or an array of colors in any room of your home will not go over well with buyers. Tropical-colored walls in your basement that were inspired by a getaway will probably be a decision you’ll come to regret. Paint your home in neutral colors before putting it on the market so as to appeal to as many buyers as possible.
Along with a coat of fresh, neutral paint, installing new carpet ranks as one of the best bang-for-your-buck improvements a seller can make.
Repairing your carpet may seem like a feasible option before listing your home, but, in reality, it may come back to haunt you when your home is on the market. If your carpet is older and in distress, the better option is to just replace it. Along with a coat of fresh, neutral paint, installing new carpet ranks as one of the best bang-for-your-buck improvements a seller can make.
Failing to eliminate clutter is another mistake that could cost you. If you’ve ever walked through a new construction property, you’ve likely noticed that the home isn’t staged with much furniture—that’s how you want to showcase your home. Remember: When staging, less is more.
