We have over 30 years of sound advice that drives our commitment to excellence!
1. First Impressions are first priority
An attractive exterior makes a potential buyer feel warm and fuzzy even before they enter your home. Make sure the front door is painted and clean, lawn and hedges trimmed, flower beds weeded and yard debris kept to a minimum.
2. Decorate that interior
It is a good idea to paint or touch up all walls and any worn woodwork. The key is to show the potential buyer how the home will look and not having them just simply guess. By making sure the walls and trim are looking good, a quicker sale with a higher offer will result.
3. Mr. Clean
A clean home with sparkling windows and floors will have your home looking its best.
4. Small adjustments
Make sure to adjust any sticking drawers or loose doorknobs etc. These will be noticed by a potential buyer or a home inspector.
5. High to Low
Removing all clutter and any unnecessary items that have accumulated will help display the full range of your storage and utility space.
6 .Cut Closet Clutter
By simply making sure clothes are properly hung, and shoes, ties, and other articles are neatly organized, your closets will appear more spacious and useable.
7. Light the Way
By turning on all lights before a showing allows the potential buyer to feel welcome and gives the home an inviting and warm feeling.
8. Wall to Wall
Clean, fresh carpet is appealing to a potential buyer and will help show that your home has been well cared for. A professional carpet cleaning company can help to make sure your carpets are looking good. If in fact your carpet has considerable wear it may be wise to simply consider a carpet allowance which will allow a new buyer to pick their particular color. If not possible, consider a neutral color.
