To sell your home, the focus must be on the unique characteristics of the home and accentuating them while minimizing the not so unique features.
First Impressions are The Most Important
Front of the home must be impeccable – grass cut, weeds pulled, swept walkways and porches. You want the potential buyer to pull up to your home and be mesmerized by the appearance.
LIGHT – LIGHT – LIGHT
Lights are a great way to add warmth to your home! They brighten your home and help make the rooms appear bigger!
Take the time to tighten screws, doorknobs, hinges and sticky windows. Minor details count! Are your mechanical systems in working order? If not, call a pro to have them serviced.
Stage Your Home
Potential buyers want to walk in and feel at home! Add some decorative pillows, small pictures to bare walls, fresh flowers and declutter! Ask your agent to provide staging tips or a recommendation for a stager. Staged homes sell faster and for more than vacant, cluttered, dirty homes.
Clean Your Home
Crisp and clean will help get the home sold! Recaulk any tiles in the bathroom or kitchen, patch holes in walls and repaint. It will pay off in the long run.
Appointments will be made to show your home – do your best to stay away and keep pets away as well. If you need to be home, allow the buyer’s agent to guide the potential buyer thru the home. Crate your pets if they must stay so no unforeseen issues arise.
The Pros HAVE This
Your agent is highly skilled and trained to handle the selling process of selling price, negotiations, terms of the sale and all other particulars of the purchase.
