How to make your Fairfield County, CT listing attractive

September 19, 2017 | Higgins Group Real Estate

Deciding to sell your home means you are placing it in a marketplace where it will probably sit alongside numerous homes with similar features. It needs to stand out if you want to achieve success.

While a great real estate agent will help you in this area, you’ll need to do your part as well. Here are several tips on how to make your Fairfield County, CT listing more attractive for potential buyers:

Home selling

Go for a neutral look

Make use of neutral tones for furnishings, décor, and paint shades. This way, buyers who look at your home will be able to easily imagine using their own furnishings and favorite colors, without being overwhelmed by your personal taste, color choices, and décor.

Let the light in

Filling your home with light will make it appear more spacious and brighter, and can also put potential buyers in a great mood as they walk through your home. Get rid of heavy window shades, blinds, or treatments that make your interiors look dark and drab.

Depersonalize and de-clutter

Every buyer needs to imagine seeing your home as their own, and family photos on the wall and personal items lying around will prevent them from doing so. Even if you think your collection of sports memorabilia might be impressive, it may also be seen as clutter, so it’s best to stow way personal belongings, which can increase your space as well.

Clean, clean again, and then clean some more!

Make sure every surface of your home – be it, wood, glass, tile, or stainless steel – is meticulously scrubbed and polished to make it look as if they’re in pristine condition. Making your home appear clean and spotless will create a significant positive impact, and will make it more appealing to buyers.
