When preparing for a home sale, the devil is in the details. You probably already know about the “do’s,” de-cluttering, curb-appeal, staging, and making necessary repairs. But here are a few “don’ts” that often trap home sellers into making mistakes:
Don’t make a statement. Now is not the time to be bold with renovations and staging; but rather stay focused on getting your home sold. Stay away from trendy features, and bold designs. Although bright and dramatic colors seem tempting, stick with neutral color schemes. Besides making rooms feel awkward, making a statement with trendy fixtures and bold colors may turn off homebuyers. Your statement will have homebuyers fixated on the style, rather the space and potential of each room.
