Do you think you’re ready for your first open house? Before you list your home for sale in Minneapolis, it’s a good idea to take a step back and check with a professional home stager to ensure you get the highest possible bid in a shorter amount of time. Follow these quick tips to get your house ready to that Sunday rush.

Polish Your Curb Appeal

Give your yard and front walk a good, hard look. Pull up any weeds, feed and mow the lawn, and trim back the hedges to show off your windows and doors. Add a basket of flowers, or plant some seasonal blooms in the bed for that extra pop of color. Pressure washing the siding is a good choice, too.

Put the Shed to Use

For families who are house hunting, create the appearance of a wide open back yard by bringing in all the sports equipment, lawn chairs, and dog toys. Set up a single seating area on the patio, and highlight the play set by putting down a thick layer of mulch under it. Clean up along the fence line and close the door to the shed.

Pack Up Your Personal Effects

Now is the time to start preparing for your move and to put your home's best foot forward. Rent a storage pod or unit nearby, and box up most of the items that fill your bookshelves, rooms, and hallways. The collection of china dolls or collectibles may bring a smile to your face, but they can make a potential buyer see a crowded house full of old things. They want to view a home that is open, airy, and ready to welcome their own special memories.
