When getting ready to list your home, the best way to prepare it for the market is by remembering the three D’s: declutter, depersonalize, and damage.
What do I mean by these three terms?
Declutter: When going through your home, look for any clutter that’s laying on the floor or anything that’s out of place. Your kitchen and bathroom countertops especially should be free and clear of any personal items. Getting rid of those things makes it easier for buyers to look at clean, clear spaces.
Depersonalize: Along with the clutter, look for personal items and mementos like photos to remove from the walls and countertops. You want buyers to be able to envision themselves in the home—not you.
Damage: Look for anything that needs to be repaired within your home. I’m not saying hire an inspector to inspect your home for things that aren’t clear; I’m saying look for things that are obvious so you can get them repaired before any buyers can spot them.
