Preparing Your Home for Sale

Preparing your home for sale is an essential part of the selling process. When selling, we want to make sure your home is as close to perfect as our resources will allow. More and more buyers are starting their home search online, where they can view pictures and videos of your home. If proper care is not taken to show your home in its best light, it could result in a stagnant listing. You would be surprised what a little decluttering and moving some furniture around will do to improve the appearance of your home!

We provide everything we can to our clients when preparing their homes for sale! Decluttering, Staging, Professional Photos & Video, suggested upgrades, and more are included when working with us.

Staging

Staging is one of the most basic home selling tips you can do as a seller. As the saying goes, staging sells! With a warehouse full of furnishings and an on-staff interior designer, The Prestige Team offers FREE professional staging for all of our clients looking to sell their property.

Decluttering

A cluttered house usually does not show very well. One of the best, and easiest, ways to really show off your home is to get rid of all the unnecessary items you may have laying around. Things that clutter your home are usually decorative ornaments, collectibles, family pictures, excessive furniture, etc. The rule of thumb is: if you are not going to use it in the next month or two, PACK IT! Might as well get a head start!

The Little Things

Often overlooked, things like light and plumbing fixtures make a HUGE difference! These are often inexpensive upgrades that can add a ton of value in the eyes of a buyer! Anything you touch in the home: light switches, handrails, medicine cabinets etc. can be counted in this category. Of all the home selling tips, this is probably one that will provide the biggest impact for the least amount of money!

Paint

When it comes to painting, the idea is not to be too colorful or neutral. If painting is in the budget, keep these tips in mind! Establishing a theme using colors you already have in your home is something The Prestige Team specializes in. From coastal to ranch themes, we’ve done it all! Choosing a color and theme is among the most critical items of our home selling tips.

Doors & Baseboards

Often overlooked, doors and baseboards can make your home look much more contemporary or upscale. Just like light and plumbing fixtures, doors and baseboards are an excellent upgrade to give your home an extraordinary look!

Flooring Choices

From laminate to hardwood floors and everywhere in between, today’s flooring choices are vast! We see more and more laminate in homes due to the fact that it’s affordable, durable, and easy to repair. Of all the home selling tips we provide, flooring is top 3 as far as the ‘wow’ factor goes.

Bathroom Options

Do you have a big bathroom remodel in mind with a small budget? We can help with that! Just because it looks like a million dollars doesn’t mean you have to spend that much!

Big Ideas

If you have a bigger budget for your home, kitchens and bathrooms offer the most return on your money! As the saying goes: Begin with the end in mind. The key here is to ensure you have a plan!
