It’s no secret that in today’s economy the real estate market is a buyer’s market. This makes it difficult for homeowners to get the price they want when selling their homes and even worse, it can mean that their home will be on the market for an extended period of time. However, there are some things that can make homes more attractive to buyers and result in quicker sales.

Most people are looking for a home with lots of space. While it may be true that the typical homeowner cannot add square footage to the home, just about anyone can use a few strategies to make their home ‘appear larger’. This includes basic de-cluttering. Even a small home will look larger if it is clutter-free.

When a room is clutter-free it is easier for potential buyers to see the home rather than the objects in the space. Besides making an area appear larger and more organized, de-cluttering will make it easier for buyers to imagine themselves living in the space. Plus, a cleared out space that is decorated with only items that serve a function will give each area a sense of purpose.

Ideally the home interior décor will be rather neutral. A fresh coat of paint can make a huge difference in the way an area appears. In addition, neutral color schemes make it easier for new owners to use their existing furniture in the home.

In essence, staging your home is one of the key elements to a quick sale. When it comes to staging, if an item is not necessary and fully functional, it should be considered clutter and removed from the space. This includes personal items such as family photos and even magnets on the refrigerator.

Another consideration when selling a home is the property’s curb appeal. If people are not attracted to the home’s exterior they are not likely to be interested enough to explore the interior. The same basic techniques apply to the outside of the home as the inside. You should cleanup and clear out any clutter. Make any repairs necessary and spruce up the landscaping.

As you clean out and de-clutter the inside and outside of your home you are sure to find an accumulation of rubbish that needs to be disposed of. In fact, your curbside trash service may not pick up all of the items you have. In addition, you may have some items that are still usable and others that should be recycled. Fortunately there is an easy solution to this dilemma. Just call 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, the junk removal Dunwoody relies on for this type of help.
