What Makes a House More Appealing to Buyers?

The most appealing thing for a buyer is for them to be able to see themselves living in your home. So how do you do this? Firstly, in order for potential buyers to visualize themselves in your home, they have to forget that someone else lives there!

We want buyers to see themselves living in your home. This means that when a buyer walks through your home we want them to imagine their furniture, their personal items, their photos, and themselves actually living in your house. In order to accomplish this, as a seller, you need to declutter and remove any personal items such as photos throughout your home. This also means to make your home as clean as possible, so cleaning off countertops, shelving, table tops, and other spaces where you may leave out a lot of personal items.

Removing personal items and photos from a home allows your buyers to see their own belongings in the spaces of your home. So declutter and depersonalize your house before you list it. This is one of the ways for getting buyers to fall in love with your house.
