Moving home is an exciting venture, the chance to start again and make a return on your current investment. Of course, there is so much to do! To start prepping your home for sale, begin with these seven simple tips.

1 . Deep Clean

First things first, if you’re preparing your home for sale, you need to give everything the deepest clean your home has ever seen! Some like to hire a professional to do this for them, while others prefer to do it themselves. Leave no corner unturned which means dusting every high shelf; sweeping every crevice; and making every surface shine! If you’re looking to do a green-clean, try products by eco-cleaning brands like Puracy or Ecover.

2. Paint neutral

When you are preparing your home for sale, it’s best to paint your rooms in neutral colors. Remember, buyers need to view the house as a blank canvas so that they can visualize their own decor styles and belongings. An overbearing or bright color scheme can be a little too distracting. It may even mean (subconsciously) that the buyer cannot picture themselves living here. This is because if you don’t like a color scheme, it can be hard to get too excited about that house. Neutral color schemes are a safe bet to keep everyone happy.

3. Simple decor

For the same reason, it helps to keep your decor simple. The buyer needs to get an impression of the size, style, and atmosphere of the home. An elaborate decor scheme could mean lots of items are competing for visual attention in the space. With a simple decor scheme, you’ll help your visitors to see the true potential.

4. Remove personal belongings

When you are prepping your home for sale, you need to think ‘show home’! Store your personal belongings out of sight and to give your home a neat and minimal look of perfection. When you are choosing the items for decor, choose the bare minimum. For instance, one plant, one neutral painting, and a set of luxury cushions. This year minimal interior design is still trending!

5. Natural touches

To beautify any home, natural touches are essential. Choose plants, flowers, or decorative shells in bowls, but remember to keep it simple. It’s also vital to make the best use of natural light when showing people around your home.

6. Curb appeal

Don’t forget about the outside of your house when you are preparing your house for sale. Sweep the yard, replace the paving stones, paint the front door, and the fences too. 
Get some lovely new flowers for your front garden, and think about creating that perfect first impression. When you improve your home’s curb appeal, you’ll start off on the right foot with every single prospective buyer.

7. The right fragrances

Last up; the right smells can do wonders for creating an appealing atmosphere in your home. Choose candles like rose, mint, or lavender to create a relaxed and peaceful environment.

Selling your home can be a long process, and some prefer to get it done fast. One of the ways that you can speed up the process is by choosing a cash buyer for your home. For more details on the ins and outs of choosing a cash buyer, check out the Gem Homes website.
