How to Prepare Your San Rafael Home for Viewing

If you want your property to sell fast and for top dollar, you need careful planning. You also need to know how to spruce up your home to turn it into an irresistible and marketable property. Read on for some tips to prepare your home for a viewing.

Prepare your San Rafael homes for sale for your potential buyers and get that sale that you are hoping for!


  1. Create an attractive drive by appeal

Many potential buyers will make a drive-by visit to your home before deciding whether or not they will schedule a viewing. Make sure to tidy up the exterior of your high end home for sale in San Rafael by regularly mowing the lawn. Trim the hedges and remove weeds in your pathway. Make potential buyers feel welcome by giving your front door and window frames a fresh coat of paint.


  1. Make the bathroom spotless

The bathroom is a potential selling point of your home. Make sure to get rid of any mould from the corners. Replace the shower curtains and get some new fixtures like taps and water railings. Consider painting or tiling your bathroom. Keep in mind that an impressive bathroom can make a difference.


Keep your San Rafael homes for sale spotless and beautiful for your buyers to achieve the success that you are aiming for!

  1. Keep away everything that is personal

Store away all photographs of your family. Remove personal items in the bedroom and everywhere else in the house. Your potential buyers will not be interested in seeing the life you have made for yourself in your home. What they want to envision is the lovely life they could make for themselves in their potential new home.


  1. Create space and order

During a viewing, potential buyers will want to see every room in your San Rafael luxury home for sale so make an effort to create more space in your home. Spend time making the bedrooms neat and roomy. Make sure to pack away all toys and clear away all clothes and shoes. Buyers will want to look in closets and cupboards too so try to put these spaces in order.


  1. Pay attention to details

The sale of your home could be affected by simple little things so pay attention to them. Try to look at your home from the point of view of buyers and think about the details that would impress or dismay them. Consider replacing broken light bulbs. Fix leaky taps and doors and drawers that do not open or close properly. Repair cracks in the wall and get rid of that old wallpaper you have placed years ago.


Inviting a potential buyer to view your property is an opportunity for them to visualize themselves living in your property in the near future. Create a good impression by knowing how to properly prepare your home for viewing. For more helpful ideas on home selling, visit

"Pay attention to details." This is an overlooked but very important part of staging a viewing. Great post, Lydia!
