Have you seen the shows where they take a dilapidated home and turn it into a beautiful show piece and wondered how they do it? Well, they put a lot of money into it, that’s how. But what do you do when you don’t have the financial means or the equity to afford a full renovation? It’s simple, you focus on the three D’s. Declutter, depersonalize, and deep clean.
There is so much you can do that will cost you almost nothing to help get your property looking its great.
Start by decluttering your home. Check out our blog on decluttering your space for tips, resources, and other helpful information that will guide you. Learn that less is more, and you’ll thank yourself that you don’t have to move unneeded unwanted belongings anymore.
Next, you’ll want to work on depersonalizing. What does that mean?
Put yourself in the shoes of a buyer
When you walk in to tour a home, do you want to be overwhelmed by every family photo or every memento from years of travel? No, you want to be able to envision yourself in the home, making it your own. Take this time to pack up, put away, organize all the dust collectors and personal memories.
Once you have decluttered and depersonalized your home so that it feels more spacious, open and spotless, it’s time to focus on giving it a good scrubbing. Clean your walls, use magic erasers to remove marks on baseboards, scrub the grout in kitchen & bathrooms, dust the cobwebs, make your windows sparkle… deep clean your home, or hire someone to do it for you.
It isn’t always about throwing money at a home to make it look its best; oftentimes all you need to do is to spend a little time and effort in just making it more presentable.
