Selling your Albuquerque home for top dollar requires that your home be in prime condition, especially compared to other homes in the same area and price range. We can’t all afford to spring for a professional home stager but there are some tips and tricks we can offer to help your home have that staged look and feel.

  • Consider Updates - Updating, especially in kitchens and bathrooms can make or break a deal. Potential buyer look at these rooms as major projects in general. If they’re outdated, a buyer may decide that your home is more work than they are willing to put in.
  • Declutter - Put it all away. From knick knacks to family photos, decluttering makes a big difference in the look of a home. Homes with a lot of clutter give the impression that a home might be lacking storage.
  • Smell It - Better yet, have someone else smell it. We get used to the smells in our home and often, we overlook unpleasant odors that can be a real turnoff to potential buyers. Invite an honest friend over to take a whiff and tell you what needs work.
  • Let the Sunshine In - Natural light can make a room look larger. Remove or replace heavy curtains or blinds with light and airy coverings that let the light in but still provide privacy. During showings, throw back the curtains and let the sunshine in.
  • Add Curb Appeal - Clean up the yard, clear cobwebs and peeling paint and add some color. The fastest way to scare off a potential buyer is to make a bad first impression.
  • Remove That Personal Touch - Buyers want to be able to picture themselves in your home. Removing family photos, religious relics and kid’s artwork allows buyers to see their own belongings in the home.
  • Make The Room A Room - One of the worst mistakes sellers often make is not giving a room a purpose. Putting bedroom and office furniture in the same room can confuse a room’s purpose and potential buyers. Decide what a room will be “staged” as and stick to that one thing.
