Preparing to list


With the holidays about over, now comes the time to take down all the holiday cheer and put up the day-to-day decorations.  THE SPIRITS TO MOVE can get you through this project.

Are you thinking of listing your home soon?  If so, plan ahead to making your listing easy. 

When you list your home, remember these helpful hints:

1.) LESS IS MORE  time to de-clutter your home if you are planning on listing.  Don’t forget to do the storage area, closets and even the garage.

2.) FAMILY PICTURES  even though we all love to show off our kids and families, now is not the time to do this.  Take down all personal photos especially those of your children.  You want your potential buyers to look at your home and all it has to offer not your family photos.

3.) THE APPLIANCES  when potential buyers come into your home they will be looking at all possibilities, including how much work with will have to do just to get through the door.  Take the time to clean the stove, inside of the microwave, and the shelves & drawers in the fridge.  What could take you little time, may also bring more dollars to your pocket.

4.) CABINETS  make them sparkle! Got a Tupperware one? Clean it out so that when the potential buyer opens the door, they don’t have a flood of Tupperware fall out at them.  Remove pieces that are not used and store them.  Make the cabinets look roomy & spacious.

5.) THE MAN CAVE  Yes men, you to have to do your part to help in getting your home sold.  Take some time to clean the garage. Put some of the kids toys away, take and remove the blower/mower if you don’t  need them at the time, box up some of those tools that you don’t use daily or will not need until you move.

6.) THE KIDS ROOMS/PLAYROOMS  We just saw the holidays go and do your realize with the economy as it is, do you realize that many children did not even get a toy this year?  How is your child stacking up on toys?  Do they have so many that you can’t close that closet door or are embarrassed at how they lay all over the home and you child doesn’t even play with them? Why not take this time to donate the toys that your child no longer plays with, has out grown or just doesn’t even realize they have it anymore.  Your home will show better and you will feel good in helping a child that would love to just have a new toy, even though it is used it will put a sparkle in their eyes!

So now that THE SPIRITS TO MOVE maybe making you think of moving, we hope these suggestions of a few things will help aid in your sale.
