5 Great Space Creators

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

Here are my top 5 great things to do to create better space in a room for your next showing:

  1. Furniture. Relocate or remove it if it is preventing a prospective buyer from seeing a great feature or obstructing a pathway.
  2. Cabinets and Shelving. Creating space to tuck away items, especially in small spaces (i.e. laundry rooms) is immensely helpful!
  3. Bins, Baskets or Boxes. Any of these help with organizing your children’s toys or anything else that can take over a room.
  4. Rugs. They can help with seeing the room size better… plus give a nice pop of color!
  5. Lights. Go bright and the space seems bigger. Having a dimly lit room can make the same space seems smaller.

5 Places People Peek

  1. Your Shower/Tub. Regardless of whether you have a clear plastic door, a colorful shower curtain or nothing at all, people will open it up, pull it back or step in to take a look.
  2. Your Cabinets. People want to see the space they offer. How many shelves do they have? What are they made of? How deep are they?
  3. Your Drawers. More than for the space they offer, people want to know how they work. Do your drawers open and close easily? Do they have a soft close feature? Do they have any built-in organizers?
  4. Your Closets. This is a big one for prospective buyers. Closets = storage for most people.
  5. Your Attic. Go up and look to see the condition of your attic as well as what is up there before putting your house on the market. Your stored items have to go so better to know!
