3 Hidden Treasures to Help Your Home Sell!

When its time to sell your home in SW Missouri, you want to maximize its value. Here are three tips to help it sell.

1. Show off those wood floors! Many homes that are a few years old have beautiful hardwood floors that are hidden by carpet. Rip that carpet out and showcase those floors. Buyers will love it!

Wood Floors Look Great







2. Clean out those closets!  If your closets are full of unneeded stuff, clean them out and organize what is left. It will make it look larger and be less distracting to buyers.

3. Open those windows!  If your windows are covered with dark outdated drapes, open them up and consider replacing them with sheers that let in more light. No one likes a dark house because it doesn't seem inviting.

Those tips will work anywhere.  I really do like them.

Thanks for the comment Dana. I just sold a house that had beautiful wood floors covered with worn out ugly carpet. Once it was removed it made such a difference.
