10 Ways to Make Your House More Likely to Sell

With so many homes on the market in Yamhill County, sellers need to make every effort possible to make their house stand out from the competition. Buyers have so many options that first impressions do count, and it is the small differences between homes that will likely determine which house they submit an offer to. If you were a buyer comparing your home to others in the neighborhood, wouldn’t you prefer the one that is excellently maintained, has sparkling clean bathrooms, and isn’t crammed full of furniture?

1. Get rid of clutter. Throw out or file stacks of newspapers and magazines. Pack away most of your small decorative items. Store out-of-season clothing to make closets seem roomier. Clean out the garage.

This table is too cluttered! Display no more than 3 items and pack the rest.

Decorate with a few items if you like, but keep it sleek and clean.
