1. Disengage Yourself from Your Condo

When people visit your condominium, they want to imagine themselves living there. So, all your personal stuff needs to be packed away. Few things are listed here to give you an idea:

1) Family photos
2) Mementos
3) Apply neutral colors and accessories
4) Pack away the personal souvenirs
5) All the extra clothes need to be packed away as well. (It will also make your closets look spacious.)

1)      Clear up the foyer.
2)      Key holders and coat racks need to be put away.
3)      Adding a small bench and vase with fresh flowers will lift anyone’s mood

3. Understand the Buyers

Many small gestures and acts from your side can make all the difference when you are staging the condos for sale Irvine.

Here are some more things that you can do:

1)      You can also present them with a list of nearby restaurants, coffee shops, theaters and other attractions.
2)      Redecorate according to the buyer’s choice. If it is a young couple, then you would like to add some minimalistic accessories in vibrant but neutral colors.
3)      Remodel and upgrade your kitchen. Clear the counters so that it looks spacious and adding a modern appliance is also very beneficial.

If you can afford it, it is best to hire a professional cleaning team to clear up the whole property before the final presentation. Also, declutter along with the cleaning. Keep the following points in mind when you are cleaning the house:

1)      Almost pack 30% of the room. This will create the sense of big and spacious.
