Get Your Mammoth Lakes Home Ready For Its Close-up, www.sonjabush.com, Mammoth Lakes Real Estate

No matter the season, staging, or the concept of showing your Mammoth Lakes home at its best, even more important.  Follow these tips to make your home irresistible:

  1. Make every surface shine – shine bathroom fixtures, stove, refrigerator, faucets
  2. Clean off your front porch – sweep away all those leaves in the corners
  3. Clean, Clean, Clean – everything from light fixtures and bulbs to baseboards
  4. Place fresh flowers on the dining room table
  5. Remove all clutter from the house and depersonalize – put it in storage or a friend’s garage, take down all your personal pictures. Buyers want to picture their belongings in their new house, not yours.
  6. Burn potpourri or bake something to leave out for potential buyers, a soft scent to make the buyer feel welcome
  7. Leave every light on and every interior door open
  8. Take advantage of natural light – Encourage showing during daylight hours; have all curtains and blinds clean and open
  9. Wash the windows! – Buyers act on first impressions; the strong winter sun can reveal grime and turn away prospective buyers
  10. Create a little atmosphere by playing music softly in the background – tune the radio to a classical station, turn it down so that you barely hear it in the background.
  11. Show off hardwood floors – pull up that wall-to-wall carpeting, clean the floors, pull up all the throw rugs, show the wood!
  12. Freshen the walls – at a minimum, clean the walls, top to bottom. If that isn’t good enough, give them a fresh coat of paint.  That is the quickest and fastest way to freshen up a room.
  13. Use the rule of 3 – Three items per surface, in every room. Make it look uncluttered and clean by doing this.
