Getting Your Home Ready To Sell

The Checklist 
Your Home tells your story.  Is it the story you want to tell???
Check Your Curb Appeal. Sweep the sidewalk, add potted plant/flowers. How is the lighting? Is there a wreath on the front door? Do you have a door mat? This is your visitors first impression! 
Entry- Is your entry welcoming or does it send visitors (and you) running? Are there piles of shoes, backpacks, and mail? 
Living Room/Family Room-Is it comfortable? Does it serve its purpose? Do you love it?
Dining Room/Eating area- Is it inviting? Organized? Clean? Are last night dinner dishes still on the able with breakfast dishes? Does the table do double or triple duty?(meals, homework, and bill paying)
Kitchen-Is it clean,organized and attractive? Do you enjoy spending time there? Is there color and items you love? Is it the heart of your home?
Bedrooms- Are they a place of relaxation, rejuvenation, and rest? Are they pleasing to the eye? Is this where you pay your bills?? STOP! Move it out of your bedroom!
Have your children play a part in the design and style of their space. This gives them "ownership" and they tend to take better care of the space.
Bathroom-Is it clean, tidy, and free of clutter? Have one set of hand towels that are only used when guests are present. 
Laundry Room-Organization is important in this "much loved" space. Make this room as cheerful and attractive as possible.
Garage Door Entry/Mudroom- This area may only be used by your family, HOWEVER, you DESERVE a lovely, calming entrance into your home. Do what you can to make this space welcoming to you!
Your Front Door- Is your front door clean? It is the last thing people see as they leave.
