Decluttering is important because you want to make your home to show to potential buyers that it is roomy, has plenty of storage, and there’s a place for everything.

PAINT WITH NEUTRALS

A fresh coat of paint goes a very long way, especially neutral colors so that any buyer can picture their furniture and décor looking great in the space.

Before painting, make sure to spackle over any defects and wipe down to get the grime off. When you are selecting colors, with the intent to sell your home, try to pick colors that can go with just about any décor. The most popular neutrals are a range of beiges and soothing grays tones, but a mix of the two can be more versatile. Taupe is a transitional color, because its beige with black in it, taking it into the middle of the neutral paint choices. Browns and grays go well with taupe. Whatever you decide to use, remember you are staging your house to get top dollar at purchase. Painting the entire home one color can give it a cohesive look rather than each room having a different palette.

Don’t forget about your trim. At a minimum, clean and dust all of the window trim and moldings. Touch up if needed, but if they need freshening up, consider repainting them as well.

Flooring should be cohesive throughout. Hardwood or engineered wood is the most popular in the shared spaces, but carpeting in the bedrooms is still favored.
