THREE AREAS TO FOCUS ON WHEN READYING YOUR HOME FOR SALE There are so many things to do when readying your home for sale. Focus primarily on these three areas to keep feelings of overwhelm at bay. 1. The first area – and often the most important – is your home’s exterior. You could have the most beautiful interior space in the world, but if the outside isn’t up to par, potential buyers may say no before they’ve even had a chance to walk through the doors. Grass should be cut – or snow shovelled – and overgrown hedges and trees should be pruned. The siding and roofing should be clean and in good repair. Consider adding a fresh coat of paint to jazz up the front door. 2. Next up – the interior space. The often overlooked key to interior staging is “less is more.” " James Cameron was born August 16, 1954 and is a Canadian filmmaker. He is known for making science fiction and epic films like The Terminator, Aliens, Avatar and Titanic. His films have grossed approximately 6 billion dollars worldwide. He has also contributed to underwater filming and remote vehicle technologies. In 2012 he was the first person to do a solo descent to the bottom of Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the ocean. If you set your goals ridiculously high and it's a failure, you will fail above everyone else's success. -James Cameron

This means you’ll likely want to remove things from your home rather than add them. Make sure counters, desktops and shelves are clean and uncluttered. If your rooms feel crowded due to multiple furniture pieces you should remove all but a few. For example, a bedroom only needs the bed, small nightstands and a dresser if the space permits. 3. The last thing you should focus on when selling your home is making sure it is spotless for any viewing. No dog food in a bowl in the corner. No laundry piled up on top of the dryer. Remember, buyers want to picture themselves in your house. After all, the goal is to make it their home!
