Selling your house doesn’t have to be stressful. Even installing Mercer Island, WA replacement windows can be a simple, enjoyable task. The key? Plan everything and hire professional help if you can.  
 
If you want to get the absolute best value for your home, it needs to be in great condition. The reason people like “fixer-upper” properties is because they save so much money on the purchase price. Great news for the buyer, but terrible for you.  
 
Keep reading for advice on prepping your home for sale. It’s not obvious what to do if you’ve never worked in real estate.  
 
1. Clean 
 
Before you show your property to anyone, you need to make sure that it’s as clean as humanly possible. Dirt and grime detracts from even the best environment. No one is going to notice your lovely walls or lush carpets if they’re covered by a film of dust.  
 
You might even think about hiring a professional cleaning company. A pro can take care of the dirtiest jobs.  
 
2. Upgrade Your Windows 
 
Your home’s interior and exterior will benefit from great windows. They’re one of the most striking features of your property. There are few things in real estate that most people agree on, but almost no one likes window-less rooms.  
 
If you have space, think about enlarging your most striking windows. The end result can be spectacular.  
 
3. Fix Your Yard 
 
Curb appeal is a huge selling point. You want potential buyers to be attracted your home the moment they see the property. That’s the best way to make money on the sale.  
 
This can’t happen until you fix your yard. Leaving trash and clutter lying around your yard is a quick way to turn off the average homebuyer. Think about your own tastes. How would you like your future yard to look?  
 
4. Depersonalize 
 
Homebuyers want to imagine themselves living in your home. It’s easier to do that if your space is somewhat bland. The funky cheetah-print wall tapestries that you love so much fit your personality, but they’re very distracting.  
 
You should also remove most, if not all, of your family photos for the same reason. Allow people to visualize what it would be like if the house is theirs.  
 
It’s better to boring than bold if you’re trying to sell a house. It’s possible that you’ll meet a buyer who loves your unique tastes, or one who sees past them and doesn’t care. But you’ll meet many more potential buyers if your home is more appealing.  
 
You can speak to a realtor for more house staging tips. Some people have refined the process down to an art form.
