De-personalize and de-clutter; donate, store, or throw away; clean; reorganize and rearrange; repair or replace; wash, scrub, and polish; caulk; touch-up, paint, and refinish; clean again; disassociate and scrutinize. Whew… that is just the “must do” list for the inside of your home. One more thing, you can no longer think of it as your home. It is just a house; it’s something you are trying to sell.
Walk around the house, room by room. Pretend (disassociate) you are a visitor who is checking into a resort hotel, or vacation rental house. Critique (scrutinize) your house as though you were a paying guest. You DO NOT want to see any remnants of the previous occupant. You DO want to see plenty of space where you can put your stuff when you move in.
Ask yourself objective questions. Does the room elicit an uplifting response and put a smile on your face? Are you happy with the message it sends? Is it clean? Is it inviting? Does it look comfortable? Does it create a feeling of well being? Is it a happy and welcoming space or cold and uninspiring? Does the room or area have purpose? How will it look in a realtor’s photograph? Do your eyes naturally focus on something as you enter each room? Is it full of life, or is it a dead zone?
