- Repaint to neutral colors.
Not all potential buyers will love loud walls. Painting over the green accent wall with something neutral will help buyers imagine the space as they would like it to be instead of only seeing how you had it decorated.
- Identify any distinct smells.
The space you live in probably won’t smell like anything in particular to your own nose, but others may be able to identify the distinct seasonings you normally cook with or whether you own an indoor animal. Our first tip (deep-cleaning) is the best way to eliminate those smells. During a showing, puts litterboxes away and pets outside.
- Light up the space.
Buyers love well-lit spaces, so open the house up and turn on the lights during your showings. Well-placed floor or table lamps can add both class and light.
