Preparing Your Home
Before selling your home, you must first prepare it for sale so that you maximize the chance of getting the most money for your house. This process of preparing and designing your home for sale is also known in the industry as Staging.
The main purpose of staging is to make your home is appealing to as many potential buyers as possible so that the sale will be quicker and closer to your desired amount. People commonly make the mistake of associating staging with just furniture arrangement. In fact, anything that could be done to improve the look and function of a house counts as staging.
Depending on the condition and age of your house, these may be minor or major changes. A good start would be reviewing these following checklists:
- Air Quality
- Curb Appeal
- Furniture Placement & Lighting
- Home Inspection
- Main Selling Rooms
- Updates & Repairs
So now that your home is ready for sale, it's time to get it listed and put it on the Kitchener-Waterloo market.
