Get Your Home Ready to List!

As soon as you decide to sell your home at the Lake of the Ozarks it's time to get your home in tip-top shape so when potential buyers tour your home they are ready to close the deal. There is just something about a well-manicured home that appeals to buyers. Not sure where to start to get your home model ready? Here are 4 tips to get your home looking it's very best so it's ready to be put on the market!

Fresh Look and Smell 

A home that does not feel fresh or smell clean will turn your potential buyer off immediately. You do not want your buyer's first impression to be a foul odor because it is, there is a good chance your home has just been marked off their list. Buyers sense of smell is directly tied to the "emotion" they feel towards the home and can determine whether they feel the home is clean, cozy and warm. You want to make sure to clean your floors and carpets, touch up or repaint walls if necessary, and make sure your appliances are clean. Buyers will not be fooled by air fresheners alone.

Clean Your Home

Nothing says turnkey like a sparkling CLEAN home. Every inch of your home needs to be inspected, every blind slat dusted, every light fixture cleaned and every baseboard wiped down. This process can be very time consuming and many people consider hiring someone to clean their home.

Declutter Your Home 

Model homes are loaded with space and which is very appealing to the buyer. A home buyer wants to know that there is plenty of room for their personal items. Get the trash bags out and throw out items that you no longer need. Organize your closets and cabinets so that everything has a place. Finally, pack away and store the things that clutter your home. This will give your home a roomier feel and allow buyers to visualize their items in the space.


The layout of your home is very important and should create a feeling of continuity that will make sense to potential buyers. The room layout should portray the functionality of the room, highlight the best features of the room and allow a potential buyer to envision themselves in the space.
