Do your rooms have identity crises? In making your house a home, you may have overloaded a room to suit a purpose it wasn’t intended for; for example, your family room also serves as a music room; the living room is doubling up as an exercise room; perhaps your dining room has been transformed into an office. Instead of shuffling furniture from one area of the house to another, you should consider putting these items away until your house is sold. When this isn’t realistic, perhaps your basement can be partitioned to host some of the secondary functions such as sewing, exercising, playing music, etc.
Peace of mind plays a key role when people are looking to buy a house. By investing in a pre-listing inspection and showing the buyers that you’ve taken the steps to ensure that your house is solid you’ve removed a huge barrier. Your buyers will be able to concentrate on imagining themselves living there rather than on what could go wrong with it. This will set yours apart from other houses up for sale in your area.
