As a home seller, you're almost ready to list your home on the real estate market. For instance, you've committed a lot of time and money to complete extensive home repairs, conducted massive amounts of cleaning and even started working with a professional real estate agent. But even after all of your efforts, you still need to complete several last minute tasks to ensure your house is ready for prospective homebuyers to check it out. So what does it take to guarantee your house is ready for a home showing? Here are three last minute tips for home sellers to get a residence prepared for an upcoming showing: 1. Focus on the Flow of Traffic. Is it easy for homebuyers to get around your house? If large, bulky furniture and clutter fill your residence's walking paths, it may be difficult for homebuyers to walk around comfortably. Therefore, you'll want to spend some time investigating the traffic flow in each room of your home and ensure that homebuyers can explore your entire residence quickly and effortlessly. In the hours leading up to a home showing, you can improve the flow of traffic in any room simply by rearranging furniture as needed. Remember, you'll want to give homebuyers plenty of space, and moving furniture to ensure homebuyers can move around with ease is critical. You also can rely on your real estate professional for support in this area, as he or she will be able to provide you with last minute guidance to empower you to maximize the flow of traffic in every room. 2. Hide Your Personal Items. You know the photographs, trophies and other personal belongings that fill various rooms in your home? In order to provide a great first impression of your house, you may want to consider hiding these items before your home showing. The goal of a home showing is to give homebuyers a glimpse into what life would be like if they choose to purchase your residence. And if you keep your personal belongings out of sight, you can empower homebuyers to realize your home's potential and improve your chances of making a distinct first impression on homebuyers, too. Take a few minutes to place personal items in a desk drawer, a box in your attic or basement or other areas where these pieces will be out of sight during a home showing. By doing so, you can help your house create a unique impression, one that may make your home more attractive to prospective homebuyers. 3. Keep Your Home Clean. Ensure you make your bed, clean up your kitchen after breakfast and perform other last minute cleaning tasks to guarantee your home looks pristine. Ideally, any last minute cleaning tasks should only take a few minutes to perform. But ultimately, these efforts can make a world of difference in the eyes of prospective homebuyers. Guarantee your home is ready for an upcoming home showing – utilize the aforementioned tips, and you'll be able to accentuate the positives of your home to homebuyers at any time.

Trying to choose colors for the inside and outside of your home can be awfully tricky. Finding which shades mix in order to decorate your rooms can seem dizzying. With a little confidence and some knowledge, you’ll be able to find colors that you’ll love for a long time to come. Here’s some tips to help you find the right mix for your home’s color scheme. 

Look For Inspiration


Whether you’re in your friend’s living room and see a color combo that you really love, or are looking in a magazine and see something unique, make note of it for your own uses.  


Find Colors That You Can Live With


While bright green and orange may look cool together, can you really live with these hues in a room? Discover what colors make you feel a certain way. If the room is meant to make you feel calm and collected, you’ll want to find colors that are soothing to you and your soul. If the room is meant to be more energizing, you’ll want to pick a more vibrant, energetic color. Keep in mind that the color in a room affects the mood of the room. 


Get Plenty Of Samples


From sample color swatches to small cans of paint samples, there’s plenty of resources at your local hardware store to get you started on finding the perfect colors for a room. Be sure to hold the swatches up in different lighting and see how they look in the space by going around the room from wall to wall. This will help you to see how the color will look once it’s actually painted on the walls in different lighting.


Find Matches


The next question that you’ll have once you get your paint up is what kind of colors will go well in this room. It’s good to have a few ideas in mind. If you already own a sofa, for example, start by working with that color. If the sofa is brown, for example, you may not want brown walls as well. Work with what you have first. If you’re buying new furniture and accessories, you may want to work with what you’re hoping to put in the room. The task of choosing colors for the interior of your home involves thinking about both design and function.           


Nature Has Some Answers For You


If you really love the beach, think of the colors that are present there. There’s tan colored sand along with blue skies, blue water, and touches of green from seagrass, trees, and other plants. Nature’s color palette is quite extensive and the good news is that all of the landscapes match! It you look around in nature, you can get a great idea for the beginnings of a fantastic color scheme for any room in your home.
