Useful Tips on Selling Your Home

Make Your Home "Anonymous"

If there is a new home sales tract near your home, go visit.  It doesn't matter what size the homes are.  What you will find are some wonderfully (but sparsely) furnished homes that anyone could live in -- with the emphasis on "anyone."  They are anonymous.   There may be a baseball glove in the boy's room, but no family photos on the walls.

There may be "personality" - but no person.

The reason you want to make your home "anonymous" is because you want buyers to view it as their potential home. When a potential homebuyer sees your family photos hanging on the wall, it puts your own brand on the home and momentarily shatters their illusions about living in the house themselves.

Put away family photos, sports trophies, collectible items, knick-knacks, and souvenirs. Put them in a box. Rent a storage area for a few months and put the box in the storage unit. 

Do not just put the box in the attic, basement, garage or a closet. Part of preparing a house for sale is to remove "clutter," and that is the next step in preparing your house for sale.
