Preparing Your House for The Holidays And The Market

Preparing for friend and family holiday gatherings is a lot of work.  Most of us host one or more events at our homes in November or December.  What you do now to prepare for the upcoming holidays can actually help set you up for success if you need to sell your home in early 2015!

Here are a few suggestions to help you maximize your efforts:

Declutter!  Schedule a few hours to clean out closets and donate clothes that you have not worn in the last year.  Clean out and organize your kitchen and bathroom cabinets.  Less is more!  It's liberating to have less!  Buyers love an organized home that is free of clutter!

Clean!  Make your home sparkle!  Living in a home is different that showing a home.  Wipe down your kitchen cabinets.  Wash your windows.  Dust the woodwork.  Look at your home as if you were a buyer.  If you don't have time to clean, hire someone.  It's worth it!  Buyers want a move in ready, clean home!

Depersonalize!  We all have too many things sitting out.  Pack up your knick knacks, photo frames and DVDs.  Buyers need to visualize themselves and not you and your family in the home!  Start the packing process now! You'll be glad you did when it is moving week!  

Decluttering, cleaning and depersonalizing will get you ready for the holidays AND a successful home sale in 2015!
