It’s no secret that a home that is stuffed with personal chattels is a home that will be harder to sell.

The space in your closet above your clothes rack is usually wasted. You can put this space to work with easy-to-install pull-down rods. Install the rod anywhere near the ceiling and substantially increase the usable room in your closet.

Get rid of the floor lamps and table lamps. Unless a lamp is critical for showing the home, it should be prepped for moving day and hidden in your storage.

Are your blinds and curtains going to help your house sell?

The only thing worse than a non-functional blind, is a partially functional blind. Blinds that don’t work obscure your views, impede light and frustrate home shoppers.

You’re considering selling in Fairfax County. Is it time to paint?

It’s a good idea to paint before you put a home on the market. This is one of the most cost-effective home improvements you can do.

When my client asks for my input, I in turn rely on painting and staging professionals. They often tell me that an accent color repeated throughout the home can make the typical neutral colors more visually interesting.

It’s time to sell. That means it’s time to erase your personal touches.

Consider these ideas:

  • Do you need design ideas? Visit Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, or Williams-Sonoma. You may already have what you need to look absolutely in style.
  • Arrange furniture to maximize floor space but to create conversation zones where a buyer can imagine chatting with friends or family.
  • If you have a room that is snug remove superfluous furnishings. For example, remove nightstands in a smaller bedroom. Remove end-tables from a smaller living room.
  • Whenever possible raise the bar of your shower curtain or window treatments to make a space seem more airy.

My advice? If you’re thinking about selling, get to know what’s for sale in Alexandria near your home. Take a look at the pictures and ask yourself how your high-rise condo compares other 1-bedroom high-rise condos for sale in Alexandria Virginia. Buyers have access to a lot of information about real estate in Fairfax County. And most of the time most of the home buyers will follow the path of least resistance and most reward.
