Home Sale Prep Services

 

This is all the work that you know has to be done before you will sell your home but, either you don't have any idea where to start or can't seem to find the motivation to begin. We will meet with your realtor and sit down and discuss all the items on your "to do list". Here are just a few of the items on your list that I can help you conquer.

 

  • Clean like you have never cleaned before This is definitely not the time for dirt, dust and grime. From bottom to top, the house needs to be spotless. From sinks to bathtubs, windows to doorknobs, attic to basement, make it immaculate. This is not the kind of cleanning you might do before your mother-in-law comes to visit, this is serious stuff, we can manage the difficult jobs

 

  • Less is more  It is a good idea to consider removing some furniture in rooms to open up more space. Buyers want to get a good feel for the layout and space within the house. Also clear countertops, shelves and corners of appliances and miscellaneous knick-knacks and clutter, to create an open, clean look.

 

  • Cluttered closets and other storage space Basements, garages and closets jam-packed with several years worth of old stuff are a big turn-off to buyers. Clean them out and rent storage space if necessary. Again, buyers expect access to the house and all the spaces within. Margot will help you manage the process of purging the things that need to be donated or retired and yes even thrown out.

 

  • Minimize clutter in drawers, pantries and closets The same is true for these spaces. Buyers like to look everywhere!  This one of my favorite things to do, drawer & cabinet reorganization.

 

  • Recreate your space there are many nuances to the art of feng shui and we are not schooled in any of them, but Margot truly has a  good eye for the small changes that can be made in your home that will significantly improve appearances for that potential buyer.

 

  • Simple staging ideas with an increasing inventory of the smaller but unique accessories I will suggest new looks and offer each room in your home a refreshed appearance. Art, Frames, Lamps, Lamp Shades, Pottery, Linens, Drapes, Blinds, Baskets, , Duvet Covers are just a small list of the items I will review for your home and suggest to update your look.

 

  • Fresh flowers, planters and terrariums managing the flowers or plants both within and outside your home.  The differnce this makes with every home is immeasurable. Margot will consult with you to decide on potential improvement and your families preferences. She provides a weekly delivery service and loaner planter and terraruims you can desperse throughout your home to add a warm welcome to potential buyers.
