Front entry: Here’s where you get that important first impression, leave out only the most practical furnishings, such as a bench and side table. Wall art and photos should be scaled back to three or four.
Kitchen: I suggest removing refrigerator door magnets, placing loose contents in containers, and leaving enough empty space so shelves can be viewed front to back.
Master bedrooms. This room should convey a sense of serenity, with all clothing and shoes put away and night tables cleared, except for a lamp or book. My advice is to not make secondary bedrooms a catch-all for storing unused items.
Closets. These should be dramatically emptied, by half or one-third, and shelves should be organized with uniform baskets, bins, and hangers. When it comes to closet floors it’s best to get rid of everything.
Bathrooms. Loose items such as toothbrushes and hairstyling tools should be stored neatly. Towels should be put away unless sellers have new ones that they can keep neatly folded.
Outdoors. Most of us know the importance of front-yard curb appeal, but we shouldn’t neglect side and back yards. Outdoor living spaces should be minimally furnished to convey the function—a patio looks more inviting with a table, a few chairs, and barbecue. Scattered children’s toys make the scene look disorganized; they should be stored in a colorful bin.

"Heather has been absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process of buying my home. She was there anytime I had a question or concern, I would just call or text and she got right back to me. When we were looking at houses and found one she would meet us out that exact day or at the latest the next day. She gave great advice for offers, repair requests, etc. This was my first time buying a house so not knowing a lot of the process she was very understanding and explained things perfectly clear. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone buying a house."
