A welcoming porch:
The front of the house needs to be inviting and have the homely feel to it. Potted plants and a nice clean door mat are small changes to make but have a drastic change in appearance.
Greenery suits all kinds of houses modern and old so have some potted greenery next to an outdoor setting or swing chair if you have the room. If not a small plant stand with some greenery will do the trick.
Remember to keep your front lights on in the evening so if anyone wants to drive by on their way home from work, they can the front porch and entry way.
Clear the clutter:
You may like clutter, people live all different ways you don’t need to have everything in a shining manner but things need to be clean. Get rid of laundry clothes piles and if your one to have ornaments around be sure they don’t look cluttered and close people in too much with all the stuff around.
Make sure things are clean like your toilet, a dirty bathroom is off putting as is dirty clothes on the floors or musty smells. It may also benefit your place if you buy a good cleaning product for your floor to add a little shine and give the carpets a steam clean. If the floors have seen better days or wear spots on carpets you can place a rug or something else eye catching in the room to draw eyes away from the floor.
If closets and cupboardsaren’t organised it can look small and give the illusion there is no room. Potential buyers will open the pantry so make sure you organise it and give it a wipe out to give the impression its spacious and clean. If you have walk in robes pick up everything off the floor and organise in baskets or neatly folded to again create more vacant space.
