Looking For A New Home? What Will You Do With Your Current Home?
The answer to the above question is probably the same as most everyone else: sell it. Of course, anyone who’s ever sold a home before knows that this is no simple task. And, let’s face it, if you’re looking into homes on Fripp Island, you probably want to get out of the old and into the new as quickly at possible!
Granted, many Fripp Island homebuyers have several homes, so this post is directed at those who don’t. Even if you have the ability to keep the old home, maybe you don’t want to put the extra effort toward two – and that’s okay!
So, here is a big tip to make your home look ideal for prospective buyers: give them space to move into!
Of course, you’ll ask, “What does he mean by that?”
Well, here’s some practical ideas:
– Get rid of (or hide) most of your yard furniture, ornaments, etc.
– Make space in your living room, kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms by removing some furniture
– Make space on your walls, bookshelves, etc
Now, you might ask, “Why?” Well, homebuyers want a place to make their own. If all of your stuff is cluttering the house, it’ll be more difficult for them to picture the house as their own place. Removing yard ornaments lets them imagine how they would furnish the yard. Removing indoor furniture lets them picture their interior design ideas and removing books and wall-hanging allows them to imagine their books and family photos on the shelves and walls.
So, move your stuff into storage, your garage, basement or attic, and get it ready for your new Fripp Island home!
