If you are planning on selling your home first impression is the only impression. No matter how good the interior of your home looks, buyers have already judged your home before they walk through the door. You never have a second chance to make a first impression. It’s important to make people feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with shrubs and brightly colored flowers. You can typically get a 100% return on the money you put into your home’s curb appeal. Entryways are also very important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by putting in a small bench, a vase of fresh cut flowers or even some cookies. Keep in mind to make buyers feel welcome.
Another important thing to do when selling your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your stuff – put it in storage. This includes family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes. Consider hiring a home stager to maximize the full potential of your home. Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.
If you are considering selling your home give me a call you want an agent who is informed. An agent who constantly monitor the multiple listing service (MLS), know what properties are going on the market and know the comps in your neighborhood. An agent who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one has many tools to get your house sold.
