Preparing to Sell Your Home
First Impressions are important.
Curb appeal is vital. Your lawn should be trimmed, sidewalks swept, front door clean, doorbell working, fresh bark & flowers are wonderful.
Painting For A Better Sale
A minor investment in paint will pay dividends in the form of a better price and/or a quicker sale.
Here Comes The Sun!
Open the curtains and clean the windows so a pro- spect can see how bright and cheerful your house is. Dark, dreary rooms are not appealing to home-buyers. For showings, please turn on all exterior and interior lights, including accent and picture lights.
Don’t Be A Drip!
Fix leaky faucets.Dripping water suggests faulty plumbing and major repair bills. Discolored, rust-stained sinks are also warning signs - they should be clean and sparkling.
Little Things Mean A Lot
Loose doorknobs, cabinet pulls, sticking doors and drawers, wobbly hinges, stuck windows are negative factors. Check and repair all these minor flaws.
Keep stairways and corridors absolutely clear. Clutter is unattractive and not inviting.
Simple Is Better
“De-clutter” and “De-personalize” your home - remove refrigerator magnets and personal photos.
Bathrooms & Kitchens Sell Homes
Make them sparkle.
Clean sinks and toilets and repair any damaged or discolored caulking. Clean your appliances - buyers will look in them!
From Top to Bottom
Let prospects see the full value of your basement, at-tic, garage and closets by removing junk and cartons. Rent a short-term storage space if necessary.
It’s Showtime: Ambience Sells!
When your home is being shown, have all TVs turned off.Turn the stereo off too or put on soft music. Light candles to portray the warmth of your home.
Having Pets Around The House
...is wonderful, except when showing your home.
