4. Paint It I know what you’re thinking “Ugh, why should I paint it when they’re probably just going to paint over it?” My answer is, sometimes buyers lack imagination. Decor is somewhat important for buyers to imagine themsleves living in your house. A new paint job is like a facelift for your house. Pick light and neutral and you can’t really go wrong.
5. Re-Arrange It Hopefully you have edited some of your furniture and put it in storage. Now it’s time to move things around. When people are viewing your house, they are going to need space to move around, so think about paths and arteries around the rooms. Move a clunky club chair up to the master bedroom. For some reason people like to see different kinds of furniture other than a bed in the bedroom. Maybe because they think it gives them options. Also move your dining room table around, I bet right now it’s in the wrong spot, most people go long when they should go wide. And now that all your tchotkes are gone (they better be!), put out some flowers!
