Selling Your CT Home

Setting The Stage For Connecticut Home Buyers

Staging your home is all about making it easier for home buyers to see themselves living in your home. By following these easy tips, your home buyers will focus more on your home and less on its décor. The first step to helping buyers relate better to your home is to remove all personalized accessories and collectibles. In addition, other tips to staging your Connecticut home include making sure your home is “spic and span” clean, removing excess clutter and organizing your home to highlight your home’s storage capabilities. Staging your home is a time-tested strategy that will produce positive results for you.

Eyes on Your Home & Not On Your Décor

The real estate market is highly competitive here in Storrs, Mansfield, Tolland, Windham, South Windsor, Hampton, Ashford, Manchester, Marlborough, Hebron, Glastonbury, Colchester, Pomfret, Woodstock, Willington and other towns in our area. It is important to make every effort to de-personalize your home. Failure to do so will only cause your buyers to become distracted when viewing your home. It’s important for buyers to be able to visualize their furniture and possessions in your home. It’s to your benefit to make your Connecticut home appear and feel as “neutral” as possible.

Other recommendations for de-personalizing your Connecticut home include:

  • Paint brightly colored interior walls in neutral color like beige, white or cream
  • Remove and store valuable family collectibles and family photos
  • Remove family-oriented knick-knacks that clutter built-in cabinets and countertops

The Clean Sweep

Thoroughly clean every room to insure your home is spic and span clean. Focus especially on your kitchen and baths. Tubes, sinks, countertops, walls, windows, doors and floors should glisten. Consider having a neutral third party walk through your home and perform a white-glove inspection. Then clean some more!

Organize and Get The Clutter Out!

Remember the old saying – "Less is more?" We recommend you remove any excess clothing, toys, magazines, books, computer games, and anything else that clutters your Connecticut home. It’s all about creating an organized home. If you’re not sure what to do with all the belongings you no longer need, hold a yard sale or donate the items to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. If you can’t bear to part with your things, consider renting a storage unit. Do you own oversized furniture? To create more space, remove unnecessary pieces and make the room feel larger. Be sure to remove appliances from your countertops and maximize your home’s space and storage capabilities.
