When you’re selling your home on 30A, it’s important that you listen to your Realtor’s(R) advice – but you can get a head start by following these three killer selling tips from the pros.
3 Killer Selling Tips From the Pros
You’ll sell your home faster – and for more money – if you follow these tips:
- Fix the lighting
The last thing buyers want to see (aside from grime, which we’ll cover next) is clutter. They want to see that your home is roomy and spacious, and that they’ll have an easy time living in it.
When there are papers on the countertops, DVDs and books stuffing the shelves, and “stuff” all over the floor, they can’t envision themselves living there – all they can see is that there’s not enough room for everything to have a proper place.
Your best bet is to declutter every room in your home. Go into each room with three boxes. Give each one a label: “Trash,” “Donate,” “Store.”

The Trash box is for anything that’s broken and irreparable.
The Donate box is for items that you no longer use, or that you don’t use enough to keep around.
The Store box is for everything you want to keep but can’t find a good place to put right now.
As soon as the boxes are full, take action – don’t leave them sitting around, because the longer they sit, the less likely you are to do the right thing with them.
You don’t have to deep-clean every week while your house is on the market, but it’s a good idea to invest in a one-time professional cleaning service. That way, you only have to maintain what the pros have done.
Hiring a professional has plenty of benefits. First, a clean home sells faster than one that could use a little TLC. Second, it saves you time and effort. Third, professional cleaners know where all the hotspots are, and they can tackle them quickly and efficiently.
The thing to remember when it comes to house-cleaning to put your home on the market is this: Buyers may not notice all the things you’ve done to make your home sparkle, but they’ll certainly notice the things you don’t do.
Fix the Lighting
A bright home sells faster, and often for more money, than one where the buyers can’t fully appreciate all its features. When you’re getting ready to sell, you don’t have to invest in new window treatments, but you can – light and bright are the way to go.
You can use lighting to define separate spaces, too. A table lamp beside your favorite recliner, sconces behind your sofa or tall lamps in unused corners can go a long way.
