  3. 3. TAKE PHOTOS OF YOUR ROOMS It is important to try to see your house as others see it. You have lived there so long you tend not to notice certain flaws others may notice immediately those grubby switch plates, the holes where pictures used to hang, a wrinkled carpet, or just general clutter.

  4. 4. A good way to spot these invisible flaws is to take photographs of each room and even each wall in your home. You would be surprised at what jumps out at you in a photograph! It may be too much furniture or furniture that is too large for the room. Large furniture makes a room look smaller. More info on: http://www.legalelements.com.au/

  6. 6. PACKING AS YOU GO You can kill two birds with one stone by not only removing your collection of old teapots or glass paperweights, but wrapping them in tissue paper and boxing them up. Do the same with any books you can manage without in the interim, as well as kitchenware. More info on: http://www.legalelements.com.au/
  7. 7. REMOVE FAMILY PHOTOS Another word with regard to pictures: a prospective buyer needs to be able to visualize this house as her own, to picture her family living there. That means you and yours need to be as invisible as possible. More info on: http://www.legalelements.com.au/
  8. 8. ACCENTUATE THE POSITIVES Discuss with your real estate agent what features are worthy of accentuating. Do you have unique windows, lots of natural wood, crown molding, a wooded view, and built-ins? You want to draw attention to these features. More info on: http://www.legalelements.com.au/
  9. 9. These are just a few tips on successfully preparing your home for sale. It is these subtle touches that make the difference; catching the eyes of your prospective buyers and helping them to see your house as a place they could call home. More info on: http://www.legalelements.com.au/
