Getting Your Ashland Home Ready for Sale

When selling your Ashland home, the main focus should be to create an atmosphere where everything pertaining to the home is “done”. Even if it isn’t done the way the Buyer would do it, they have a back drop to imagine how they will do it their way. Every Ashland property is different; It may be worthwhile to get a professional stager to give you advice as to what will help you sell your house in the least amount of time.  

Curb Appeal

  • Make sure the landscaping is in excellent condition.
  • Plant some colorful flowers along the walkway.
  • Dress your porch or patio with a fresh potted plant or two.
  • Make sure the house looks newly painted and that there are no repairs.
  • Needed to the outside of the house.

Front Entry

  • A beautiful front door is worth the investment. It is the Buyer’s first impression of the home.
  • Artwork is a good idea in the entry

Condition

  • Everything needs to be as immaculate as possible.
  • A fresh clean smell is very important.
  • No animal dander, as people have allergies.

Neutral Colors

  • Fresh paint is an inexpensive way to create a better environment.

Punch of Color

  • No animal dander, as people have allergies.
  • Accent the rooms with a punch of color in the pillows, throws, accents, furniture, artwork and fresh flowers. 

Lighting

  • Make sure all the rooms are well lit and the lights are turned on for every showing.  

Window Coverings

  • Window coverings such as blinds can help hide a view that is less than desirable.
  • Curtains, even sheers, will help make a room comfortable and finished.
Furnishings
  • If the house is vacant, you may rent new furnishings for the main rooms
    (Living Room, Dining Room and Master Bedroom are recommended).
  • If the house is occupied, de-clutter the contents of the home and accent with beautiful things wherever possible.
