As you prepare your home to sell there are a few tricks of the trade that will help separate your home from the competition. Potential buyers want to envision your home with their things in to, so declutter and simplify as mush as possible. Think less is more. In some cases renting a small storage unit to clear out space is suggested. Leave closets half full so buyers can really see the spaciousness. In addition to that hiring a professional carpet cleaning service can be worth it in some cases. Light cleaning such as washing the drapes and surfaces is encouraged along with light fixtures. Open blinds and remove anything that is blocking sunlight to increase natural light.
