In order to sell your house, you have to take your home out of it! You can do this by taking down family pictures and collections and vacation memorabilia. All of this will make your house feel like something a buyer could turn into their home.
Other easy to make changes include removing all area rugs because the eye stops when it comes to a rug. You want the buyer's eyes to take in the full floor plant. You can also remove practically everything from the kitchen counter tops and absolutely everything from above the kitchen cabinets. You don't want your buyers to be looking up. Instead you want them to notice the features of the kitchen. And having clear counter tops lets them see all your kitchen has to offer.
