5 Top Tips For Getting A Home Ready To Sell

Help your customersclean-home-better-price get the best price for their house by following these tips by Drew and Jonathan Scott, the hosts of several HGTV series including the long-running “Property Brothers.”

1. DON’T TAKE IT PERSONALLY

“Take the emotion out of it and make any improvement decisions based on what buyers are looking for in your area,” Drew said. “Never make them based on your personal tastes.”

2. SPREAD THE RENOVATION LOVE

“You’re better off doing a light makeover everywhere with a little extra focus on the kitchen and baths, rather than spending all of your budget on, say, just the kitchen,” Jonathan said. “Leaving shag carpet and paneling in the bedrooms is not good.”

3. LESS REALLY IS MORE

“Decluttering and depersonalizing allows buyers to picture themselves in the space, which they can’t do if you have a bunch of your photos and kids’ art everywhere,” Drew said. “And lose any bulky furniture and present an organized space.”

4. YOUR HOME IS A STAGE

“It’s a lot easier for somebody to fall in love with a home that’s beautifully styled than it is for them to try and picture what it could look like if it wasn’t an empty box,” Jonathan said. “Work with a home stager or designer who can make the most of your existing furniture or bring in pieces to fill the space.”
