Preparing Your Home for Market

Ready to sell your home? If so, here are some helpful hints:

  • First impressions count. A well maintained lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs, and a clutter free porch look inviting to prospects. Rake the leaves…Shovel the snow!
  • Start with a clean slate. Once prospects open the door, they should see a tidy home. Invest our time in cleaning. Prospects would rather see how great your home really looks, than hear how great it could look, ‘with a little work.”
  • Don’t leave your prospects in the dark. Replace burned out light bulbs. Peel back those blinds. Let the sun shine in! The more light, the better the atmosphere. Turn on all your lights- both interior and exterior, when showing your home in the evening.
  • A safety net for your home. Homeowners learn to live with booby traps; skateboards in the entryway, overloaded extension cords, and slippery throw rugs. Make sure your residence is safe for prospects and visitors.
  • A place for everything. Remember, potential buyers are looking for more than just comfortable living space. They’re looking for plenty of storage space. Make sure your attic, basement, garage, and closets are tidy and free of clutter.
  • The heart of the home. Make sure your kitchen is immaculate. Keep the range clean. Wipe down the refrigerator. Wash and put away dishes.
  • Make your bathrooms shine. Repair any damaged or unsightly caulk around tubs, showers, and sinks. Display your best towels, mats, and shower curtains.
  • Create sweet dreams in the bedrooms. A dream house starts with a dream bedroom. Colorful bedding and fresh window treatments are a must. Layer beds with several toss pillows and a seasonal throw. Create a retreat atmosphere.
  • Avoid big crowd scenes. Potential buyers often feel like intruders when they enter a home filled with people. Rather than giving your house the attention it deserves, they rush through. Leave, when possible – or step outside while the home is being viewed.
  • Pets may pose problems. We all know the dogs and cats are great companions, but when you’re showing your home they may get underfoot. Try to keep pets outside, at a neighbor’s house, or in their kennel.
  • Volume discounts matter. Rock and Roll will never die … but it may kill a real estate transaction. When it’s time to show your home, turn the stereo or television down or off.
  • Be it ever so humble. No matter how humble your abode, never apologize for its shortcomings. And, if a prospect volunteers a derogatory comment about your home’s appearance or condition, let us know.
  • Don’t turn your home sale into a garage sale. When prospects come to view your home, don’t distract with offers to sell your furnishings You may lose the biggest sale of all.
  • Defer to experience. When prospects want to talk price, terms, or other real estate matters – let them speak to an expert. Realtors are eminently qualified to bring negotiations to a favorable conclusion.
