How to: Get Your Home Ready For Today's Chicago Buyer

Are you selling your home?? there are a bunch of things that you can do to make your property stand out in today's market.

1) Pictures Pictures Pictures

Your property will most likely be listed on multiple sites and good pictures are a way to catch the eye of the potential Buyer.  If you can, have your realtor take professional pictures that will make your home look its best.  If that isn't possible, make sure to have each room be as uncluttered as possible.  Remove kid's toys and all unnecessary furniture to make the space look as big as possible.  Remember that these are not ordinary photos of your home, they should be viewed as advertising material, so go over every room with a critical eye.

2) Clean... Like really clean:

If you are still living in the property while you are selling it, it is important to keep everything spotless and tidy. Especially before the open house.  Put as much bulky furniture in storage as you can, you want the Buyers to see how big your space is.

3) Make small repairs:

Now is the time to fix small things that are broken around your home.  Give your walls and ceiling a fresh coat of paint.  Stay away from bold colors and focus on light neutral colors that everyone can get on board with.

4) Talk to your realtor:

You may have an idea of what you want to list your home for, but a good realtor will know the price your property will move at.  Nothing's worst than a property that sits on the market and gets stale.

Good Luck!!
