What does it take to get the most for your home in any competitive market? As an ex-home builder and now real estate brokerage owner, the perception that the home was well taken care of is absolutely priceless. Even though there are many factors that affect the price of a home, these simple ideas can give you an advantage in getting a contract for top dollar. First, depersonalize yourself from the home. Second, remove all personal items like pictures, souvenirs and jewelry. Third, spot clean all windows, rugs and cabinets. Fourth, organize all closets. Finally, arrange furniture for maximum space capacity and remove unnecessary furniture items from the home. Instead of seeing the home for what it could be, buyers oftentimes get side tracked by the wedding pictures on the wall. Your ultimate goal as a seller is to try and give the buyers the cleanest canvas to paint themselves into the home.
