It’s also important that the home show well in photos, video, and virtual walkthroughs.

Decorate a scrubbed clean exterior with flowers, preferably ones that are in season. Be exact in removing weeds and tidying up your gardens, or at least tend to any foliage in the front of the house. Make it easy on yourself and your lower back by using a stand up weeder based on a 1913 design. Grampa’s Weeder allows the gardener to remove weeds without bending or hunching over. The wooden handle measuring just over 3 feet is attached to a set of steel tongs and a foot level that uses leverage to easily lift weeds out by the roots. For close to the ground work, a cast-aluminum set of trowels and a cultivator are the right tools for preparing beds for planting. Choose attention-grabbing plants that are hardy and provide the maximum effect and cover exposed dirt with mulch, wood chips, or stone for a clean look.

Roll Out the Welcome Mat

Once the exterior and garden have been taken care to put down a functional doormat. Foot traffic from showings will bring the inside out so choose a mat that will stop dirt, mud, and worse from following your guests in. These Exceptionally Good Coir Doormats made from coconut husks are exceptionally tough and separate water, dirt and assorted rubble from soles. The debris that falls through bristles that can be cleaned with a hose. Keep the mats stable and in place with a set of rubber feet.

Start tackling the interior with a room by room decluttering. You don’t need to go Marie Kondo on your possessions; the goal is to depersonalize the space enough to allow potential buyers to imagine your home as their home. For photos and before showings, remove anything that you would not see in a showroom or catalog. Bid a temporary farewell to family photos, religious and cultural items, and tchotchkes (decorative souvenirs, trinkets, dolls). Remove pieces that might obscure architectural features. It’s a lot easier to appreciate a hand carved mantelpiece or built-in shelves when they are not encrusted in trophies and keepsakes. Because you are going to put these items back, possibly even between showings, you don’t need to pack them away for good. Stash them in basket or boxes and place them out of sight. With fewer personal decorative features each room will look larger, brighter, and less lived in.

Make up Space

Increase the feeling of open space in entrances, rooms, and passageways with a fresh coat of paint.
The tools and prep work are as important as the painting itself. However, there is only so much a coat of paint can do for a wall, the surface should be in good repair. Take everything off the walls and remove any nails, screws, staples, and wires with a multifunctional pliers before wiping them down with a degreaser. If you have a steam cleaner, that is also a good option on most surfaces including brick. Now you are ready to prime the walls for painting. Go over the wall carefully with a light source to find areas that need sanding, patching, and caulking. Mark the areas that need attention with a pencil so that you can go back and address them. Perform the patching and caulking first then move on to smoothing out the newly repaired surface. Use a power sander on larger areas and a palm sander on smaller and hard-to-reach details such as cornices and molding. Smooth things out with a macro grit fine to very fine sand paper. After sanding use a slack duster to remove dust and patching residue. Made in Vermont from sheep’s wool slacker dusters are an ecologically friendly alternative to disposable dusters. They are hand washable and can be reused indefinitely. The acting dust-grabbing ingredient is lanolin, a waxy substance naturally present on wool.

Make a DIY paint job look professional by using professional grade tools. Trade messy sticky one-time use painters’ tape for a reusable trim guide to get crisp lines that will not bleed. This made in Canada painters’ guide is designed to be held in one hand leaving the other free to execute crisp straight lines. The only cleanup is wiping paint off the stainless steel blade. Have an assortment of high quality angled and round brushed for the trim and any areas that cannot be painted with a roller. Our brushes are made to last; large capacity bristles are firmly attached to the handles to ensure an even paint flow and improved precision. Use the round trim brushes for doors, trims, and details and save the angled ones for corners, edging, and finer work. With the detail work completed, roll on a fresh coat of paint with an ergonomic roller frame that can take an extension and select the correct roller for the job. Microfiber rollers are lint-free, high-capacity (holds more paint) and works well with primers, semi-gloss and high-gloss finish paints. For for flat, low sheen and semi-gloss paints choose a woven fabric roller. After the job is done clean brushes and rollers thoroughly with our cleaning tool and they will live to paint another day.

Not into painting? Update a room’s look or create an accent wall with wallpaper. No need to research and make a materials list, our Complete Wallpaper Hanging Kit comes with everything needed: a plastic wet tray, a wallpaper smoother, a flat seam roller, a snap-off utility knife, and a 12” trim guide. Just add wallpaper and possibly enlist the help of a friend with a good reach.

While preparing a home for sale may seem like a daunting task, it is actually a series of very manageable tasks that you can complete with the correct tools in a few days. Make a to-do list, gather available materials, and source those that are missing. Once all the equipment is at hand, decide how much time to allot to each task, create a schedule, and get started. Manage your expectations as you go. Your paint job doesn’t have to be perfect and the front yard doesn’t need to look like a magazine cover. The goal is to elevate your home’s value and increase appeal, both of which can be achieved by giving some love and attention to areas that create that crucial first impression.
