More On What NOT To Do When Selling Your Home

Relocate clutter out of your main rooms and hide it in closets, cabinets, the garage, attic and basement. No, don’t do it! Serious buyers will want to inspect the size and condition of every area, and they’ll be turned off if they can’t see past your clutter. Instead, relocate your things to a place outside your home, such as a storage closet or a Goodwill store.

Carpet your bathroom so it’s colorful and cozy. Yuck! Bathrooms are the moistest place in your home and a breeding ground for germs and mildew. Instead, if you need a little color and comfort, select machine-washable area rugs and bathmats.

If your home is small, unattractive or nondescript, don’t worry about supplying lots of photos for the listing. The lack of photos will make house hunters want to come over and see what it looks like. Nope! Even if your home is small and the rooms are hard to photograph, you can still take numerous close ups of attractive features. The more attractive photos you have, the more you’ll capture the interest of home buyers.
