Grab them at the curb.

You’ve seen them. Buyers hunkered low in their cars in front of your home, doing drive-bys before deciding whether to request a showing or attend an open house. Make these potential buyers fall in love with your home from the street by adding potted plants and flowers, power-washing patios and walkways, weeding the garden and mowing the lawn. How does the front door look, chipped paint, tarnished door hardware? Update the hardware, $30.00 goes a long way. It’s your first chance to make a good impression, so you’ve got to make it count.

Make It Sparkle

Make your home a high-maintenance zone. Repair squeaky doors, chipped or smudged paint as well as broken fixtures and fittings that you’ve neglected. Remember dark colors make a room look smaller. You are “Selling Space”! Paint is the best bang for your buck that will quickly refresh a dull, dated room. Keep it neutral. Consult with a realtor, they have a paint chip for every decor.

And finally Minimize, Minimize Minimize

When you sell you’re going to have to move and when you move you’re going to have to pack, so considering packing up a few things early. If you can live without it (including furniture), PACK IT!

Remember how you live in your home is not how we sell and market your home! Consult a realtor for expert advice on staging your home!
