As a home seller, it is important to keep your house show-ready. By doing so, you can ensure your residence will look great, regardless of when a homebuyer wants to see it.

Ultimately, home staging can make a world of difference for any home seller, at any time. And with the right home staging advice, a home seller can learn what it takes to maintain a house's appearance both inside and out.

When it comes to last-minute home staging, here are three tips that every home seller needs to consider.

1. Illuminate your residence

Open up the shades and let sunlight into your residence – you'll be glad you did. By taking a few minutes to ensure that the shades are open, you can illuminate your residence and transform an ordinary home interior into a dazzling one.

In addition, turn on lights throughout your residence. This will enable you to brighten up each room in your home, thereby increasing the likelihood that homebuyers can see the true beauty of your entire house.

2. Wipe down bathroom and kitchen counters and sinks

Let's face it – messy counters and sinks are eyesores that no homebuyer wants to see. Fortunately, wiping down bathroom and kitchen counters and sinks is a fast, easy way to help your house stand out in homebuyers' eyes.

Keep paper towels or washcloths and a general-purpose cleaner near bathroom and kitchen counters. That way, you can wipe down these surfaces without having to search far and wide to find various home cleaning essentials.

Also, don't forget to remove clutter from in and around a bathroom or kitchen sink. Whether it's dishes in the kitchen sink or leftover toothpaste in the bathroom sink, it pays to be thorough as you complete last-minute preparations for a home showing.

3. Check for odors in your home

Pungent smells that come from a refrigerator or other areas may impact how a homebuyer perceives your house. Thus, you'll want to do a quick odor check as part of your last-minute home staging routine.

Empty any garbage cans as needed. This will allow you to eliminate nasty odors that may be coming from garbage cans.

Furthermore, feel free to use scented candles to deal with tough smells. If you decide to use scented candles, however, make sure the odors that they provide are not too overwhelming.

If you need any extra assistance as you get your house ready for a home showing, don't hesitate to reach out to your real estate agent as well.

Typically, your real estate agent can offer expert advice throughout the home selling journey. He or she will make it easy for you to prep for home showings and stage your home properly. As a result, your real estate agent can increase your chances of receiving the best price for your residence.

As the clock ticks closer to a home showing, there's no need to worry. Use the aforementioned tips, and a home seller can get a house show-ready in a matter of minutes.

As the new year approaches, you may wonder what changes are ahead for you and your family. If you have been thinking about selling your home in the coming year, there are a few pretty good reasons to do so. Read on, and you may find some new real estate goals for the new year. 


There’s Not A Lot Of Inventory


If the inventory is low, you’ll find that it’s a great time to put your home on the market. Your home will sell a bit faster and attract more buyers. If the market is particularly busy, you may get an even better price than expected for your home. 


People Want Homes Fast


Certain times of year bring a bit more urgency to the market. Employees may be more apt to have transfers within their company. Families may be looking to move in before the start of the school year. These situations can get your home off the market fast for the right price.


The Seasons Of Real Estate Are Different


While we typically think of spring as starting in late March, spring in the real estate world actually begins in January. Once the holidays are over, it’s believed that people are ready to make moves with their properties. This early season holds especially true in warmer climates. It’s thought that the earlier in the year a home is listed, the more it will stand out on the market. If you’re listing a house in a warmer climate, keep in mind that people who are looking to escape cold climates are looking to buy in the early months of the year.  


Keep in mind that if you do live in a colder climate and plan to sell and your property has some great outdoor space, you may want to wait until a warmer time of year to sell. 


The Lower The Price Of The Home The Faster It Moves


If your home is on the lower end of the price spectrum, you may be able to sell whenever you’d like., These home are attractive to first-time buyers and move fast off the market. They’re great for starter homes, fixer uppers, and house flippers.


The bottom line is that in a hot market there may be no wrong time to sell. If you speak with a REALTOR® and they believe the time is right, and you’re itching to move on to another property you should. Real estate agents have the knowledge and experience that can help you to find the right time to sell as well as the sweet spot for pricing your home.
