Making your home a place where potential buyers can feel welcomed is key to having a quick and successful sale. By decluttering rooms in your home and only keeping out essential furniture like end tables and sofas, you can assist prospective buyers in visualizing themselves and their personal belongings in your space. Keeping each room of the house neutral with warm color accents and decorations that aren’t too over the top will help the buyer decide if they can truly make the space their own. You can also try rearranging your furniture to allow a somewhat smaller space to have the illusion of being a bigger part of the home.
