You Play a Vital Role in the Sale of Your
Please consider these simple steps
First Impressions-Curb Appeal
A well manicured lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs, and a clutter-free
entry will welcome prospects. So does a freshly painted front
door. The fewer the obstacles between the prospect and the
true appeal of your home the better.
Invest A Few Hours for Future Dividends
Clean up the living room, the bathroom(s), and the kitchen.
If the woodwork is scuffed or the paint is fading consider
some minor spruce up. If you're worried about time, hire professional
cleaners or painters to get your house ready. Remember, prospects
would rather see how great your home really looks than hear
about how great it could look.
Check Faucets & Bulbs
Dripping water rattles the nerves; discolored sinks suggest
faulty or worn-out plumbing. Burned out bulbs or faulty wiring
leave prospects in the dark. Don't let a little problem detract
from what's right with your home.
Homeowners learn to live with all kinds of self-set booby
traps: roller skates on the stairs, extension cords, slippery
throw rugs and low hanging overhead lights. Make your residence
as non-perilous as possible for visitors.
Make Room for Space
Remember, potential buyers are looking for more than just
comfortable living space. They're looking for storage space
too. Make sure your attic and any storage spaces are clean
and free of unnecessary items.
Consider Your Closet
The better organized the closet, the larger it appears. Now
is the time to box up those unwanted clothes and donate them.
Make Your Bathroom Sparkle
Bathrooms sell homes, so let them shine! Check and repair
damaged or unsightly caulking or faucets in the tubs and showers.
For added allure, display your best towels, mats and shower
Create Dream Bedrooms
Wake up prospects to the cozy comforts of your bedrooms. For
a spacious look get rid of excess furniture. Colorful bedspreads
and fresh curtains are a must.
Open Up In the Daytime
Let the sun shine in! Pull back your curtains and drapes so
prospects can see how bright and cheery your home is.
Lighten Up At Night
Turn on the excitement by turning on all your lights-both
inside and outside- when showing your home in the evening.
Lights add color and warmth and make the prospects fell welcome.
Avoid Crowd Scenes
Potential buyers often fell like intruders when they enter
a home filled with people. So rather than give your home attention,
they hurry through. Best to be out during any showings.
Watch Your Pets
Dogs and cats are great companions, but not when you're showing
your home. Pets have a talent for getting underfoot. So keep
kitty and spot outside or at least out of the way.
Don't Turn Your Home into a Second-Hand Store
When prospects come to view your home, don't distract them
with offers to sell those furnishings you no longer need.
Defer To Experience
When prospects want to talk price, terms or other real estate
matters, let them speck to your Realtor.
We look forward to hearing from you.
