Sell It Fast With Feng Shui

Sell It Fast With Feng Shui
Want to sell your house faster? These simple Feng Shui tips will help attract buyers to your home.

1. Mark the Spot. Ask your real estate agent to place the For Sale sign to the right of the house, since people naturally look to that side when they approach a home.

2. Clear the Way. Clear away dead plants, vines, shrubs, and branches that block the main pathway so buyers have a clear route to the front door.

3. Greet Buyers. Place healthy plants or flowers in attractive dark blue ceramic planters on both side of the front door to act as a welcoming threshold to "greet" buyers.

4. Clean and Refresh. Clean the front door, repaint if the finish is cracked, old, or faded, and add a fresh new doormat; make sure the doorbell works.

5. Make a Good Impression. Display your realtor’s cards and flyers inside to the right of the front door, standing upright in racks rather than flat on a table or counter.

6. Go Clutter-Free. De-clutter the entire house, paying special attention to the kitchen, closets, and garage to show buyers there is room for their possessions.

7. Help Buyers Visualize. De-personalize by removing family photographs and personalized items so buyers can visualize where they will place their own things.

8. Deck the Walls. Make sure the artwork throughout the house has colorful, friendly, and positive images; remove any art that is dark, sad, or lonely.

9. Improve the View. Create a beautiful view by cleaning all windows until they sparkle and dusting all the doors and around the doorframes.

10. Get Ready to Go. Pack up five of your most treasured possessions and seal them in a moving box as a symbol you are ready, willing, and able to move!
