Are you planning on moving this year, and worried about getting your home ready to sell? A recent OREA (Ontario Real Estate Association) survey found that getting a home ready to sell is a top concern on the minds of Ontario residents. But getting your home ready to sell doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. There are three things you can do that will have a huge impact on getting your home in ship-shape for listing time.
1. Paint. Fresh paint can do so many things. It can brighten, it can warm, it can cool, it can clean up and it can cover. You can create an entirely new look in any room with a fresh coat of paint while also brightening and refreshing a space. If you’re worried about choosing colours, stick to neutrals because they are more likely to please everyone than bright, bold colours.
2. Rearrange. Rearranging your furniture and adding basic decorative touches can also refresh your home. Use furniture to create a new flow throughout your home, or rearrange each room to create a whole new look.
3. Declutter. One of the biggest things you can do when getting your home ready to sell is to declutter. An easy way to do this is to rent a storage locker and move at least one piece of furniture from each room into it to create more space. Getting rid of personal knick-knacks such as photographs or other decorative items can also open up a space, ensuring that buyers aren’t overwhelmed by your presence when they’re checking out your home and can easily envision themselves living there.
