When it comes to selling Short Hills NJ Homes, and most areas honestly, personalization can hurt you.  One of the most important things to do when selling your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your stuff – put it in storage. This includes family photos, memorabilia collections, and personal keepsakes. Consider hiring a home stager to maximize the full potential of your home.

Not everybody is a dog or cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty litter box, or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the impression that your house is not clean. If you’re planning an open house, send the fur-babies to a pet hotel for the day.
