Before your home goes on the market, you should take some initial steps to get it ready.

There are certain ways to get your house in good shape and ready to sell. A coat of fresh paint goes a long way to update and brighten your home.

Decluttering and clearing counters can make a kitchen appear larger. Pulling weeds or adding plants indoors can change curb appeal or make the home more inviting.

Home staging tips

DO WHAT YOU CAN

You don't have to undertake major renovations to get your home ready for sale. Minor adjustments -indoors and out - can make your home appealing to buyers.

De-personalize your home by removing family photos, trophies and awards, vacation souvenirs, and any religious decor. As buyers view your home they will be trying to visualize it being their own house and that can be difficult if all they see is your family's personal belongings.

Clean the home from the floors to the windows. Make it shine and hire professionals if needed. Small repairs such as fixing the leaky faucet and replacing all the burned out bulbs will make a difference too.

Testimonials

  Marion helped us purchase our dream home and we are very thankful for all her hard work and devotion to us. We relocated from Montreal to the GTA and Marion was accommodating to all our needs. Whenever we were in town, Marion made herself available and when we were out of town, she sent us updates on new and existing listings. Although we had an idea where to look, she helped us find our home in an area we didn't even consider. She listened to all our needs and presented us with all our options. Marion’s professionalism, commitment and willingness to go above and beyond is a testament to her dedication to her clients. We send our sincerest gratitude to Marion for helping us find our family home!
