How to Prepare Your Home for Sale

Preparing your home for sale can be a daunting task, but with a little bit of preparation and planning, you can make the process go smoothly. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the things you can do to get your home ready to sell.

  1. Declutter and de-personalise: One of the most important things you can do when preparing your home for sale is to declutter and de-personalise. This means getting rid of anything that is not essential and removing personal items such as family photos and mementos. This will help potential buyers envision themselves living in the space.
  2. Make repairs and updates: Take a good look at your home and make a list of any repairs or updates that need to be done. This could include fixing leaky faucets, painting, or replacing old appliances. Not only will these repairs and updates make your home more appealing to buyers, but they could also increase the value of your home.
  3. Stage your home: Staging your home is the process of arranging your furniture and decor in a way that highlights the best features of your home. This could mean rearranging furniture to make rooms look larger, or adding a few tasteful decorations to give your home a more inviting feel.
  4. Clean and organise: A clean and organised home is essential when preparing your home for sale. This means deep cleaning every room, including the kitchen and bathrooms, and organising closets and storage spaces.
  5. Hire a professional photographer: A professional photographer can help you showcase your home in the best light possible. They will know how to take photos that will make your home look spacious, bright, and inviting.
  6. Price it right: Once your home is ready to be shown, it’s important to price it correctly. This means doing your research and finding out what similar homes in your area are selling for. A good real estate agent will be able to help you with this process.

Preparing your home for sale can be a lot of work, but with the right approach, you can make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible. By decluttering, making repairs and updates, staging, cleaning and organising, hiring a professional photographer, and pricing it right, you can ensure that your home will be in the best possible condition when it goes on the market.

Rightsize Your Home Online Courses

We have 3 online courses to help you get started in your Rightsizing journey.

Shifting Your Mindset ($27)

This course helps you understand what you’re thinking and how to think about blockers.  It’s ‘mindset’ talk from the people that know!  The ones who’ve done it!

Empty nesters often find themselves with too much home and things, and not enough time. They may also feel like they need to downsize, but the prospect of packing up a lifetime’s worth of memories can be overwhelming. In order to move forward, it is important you shift your mindset from ‘you’ll never get rid of all this stuff to ‘it’s time’. These online courses will help you sort through the clutter in your home and set aside things that mean a lot – the rest will be given away, sold, upcycled, or discarded. The goal is to create less stress and more organisation, which in turn helps you live more comfortably. 

It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone, but once you do, moving on will be easier than ever before. Join this course to learn how to downsize without going crazy, so you can make room for the things that really matter most.

The Declutter Challenge ($47)

Online courses for empty nesters are becoming more and more popular. This type, of course, is great because it allows the person to start and stop whenever they please, which can be especially helpful when you’re working with a busy schedule. The course also teaches you how to move through the decluttering process in a strategic manner and maintain your well-being. We offer experience, tips, and insights on what types of things should go first and which ones can wait, as well as provide strategies for staying focused. Some even include downloadable workbooks that allow you to work at your own pace without having to watch videos or read long blog posts. When it comes to online courses for empty nesters, this one is my favourite. It’s easy to follow and gives you step-by-step instructions on where to begin if you don’t know where to start.

Adding Value to Your Family Home ($197)

This is how you make the cash!  You’ve worked hard for this home, make it work hard for you!

You can use this online course to help prepare your home for sale, so you can attract the right buyers and maximise your profit when selling. You can also learn how to stage your home.

The last thing you want to do is to incur major expenses because of a poorly staged home! Be sure that every area of your home is professionally set up. One mistake can take away from all the positive effects staging has on properties.
