2. Repair damage and fix issues

When small areas of a house are in disrepair it tells potential buyers that the home may not have been taken care of. Spending time fixing the small things and ensuring everything is in working order can go a long way in showing buyers that your home has been cared for and is ready for new occupants.

3. Declutter, depersonalize and clean your house

Homes that are clean, decluttered and without personal items everywhere tend to sell much better than the opposite. Cleaning removes distractions and gives the house a chance to shine. Depersonalizing your space allows buyers to easily envision themselves living there. Taking time to make your house look nice can really pay off when you start taking offers.

Either way, making your home available to all buyers who want to see it will increase your chances of a sale. Keeping it in tip top shape will also work in your favor with impressing potential buyers.
