Purchasers not only want to see your abode, but they want to see what you see from your home. That’s why the right window treatment is critical.

Keep it simple is the theme today. And this applies to window treatments as well. Try light colors or neutral colors for curtain panels, draperies, blinds, or shades.

Take a look at these image from 400 Madison St #303 and think critically about your own home. The consumer will always pick the best value for the price . . . especially if the price tag is around $587,000.

Every day fill a box with stuff. Not only will this make your home more presentable, but it will also make moving day less stressful and easier to manage.

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.

Ponder these recommendations:

  • Consider putting flowers on your front step, or a wreath on your door, or a decorative plant in the foyer.
  • An empty home is not as appealing as a sparsely decorated home.
  • A little potpourri in the bathrooms can help the room’s appeal.
