Lasting First Impressions..... When a prospect comes to look at your home...the first impression (curb appeal) is critical. Landscaping and lawns should be neatly trimmed and mowed. Make certain that your yard is clean of refuse and leaves. The walkway should be swept and, in winter, ice and snow removed from walk and steps. The front door must be clean and fresh looking, the doorbell in working order.
Decorating For Quicker Sale.....Don't reduce the appeal of your home by having faded walls and worn woodwork. With a small amount of redecoration, you can show how it looks instead of describing how you home could look. A small investment in paint and wallpaper will insure a better price and quicker sale.
By Appointment Only..... It is always recommended that your house be shown by appointment only. All showings will be scheduled through our office, even showings from other real estate offices. You should make certain that the house is ready to show when called.
Don't Be A Drip..... Fix leaky faucets; dripping water suggests faulty or worn-out plumbing (major repair bills); discolored, rust-stained sinks are also warning signs, so they should be properly cleaned.
Little Things Mean a Lot. Loose door knobs or cabinet pulls, sticking doors and drawers, wobbly hinges, stuck windows--all are negative factors. Take a few minutes to check and repair all these seemingly minor flaws, since they do detract from the value of your house.
Basement to attic..... Let prospects see the full value of your attic, basement, garage and other utility/storage spaces by removing junk, cartons and other articles. Neatly stack cartons, etc. If the storage spaces are dark and dreary, a coat of paint or extra lighting can do wonders.
Make bathrooms sparkle..... Bathrooms Sell Homes. Remove stains from sinks and bowls; repair any damaged or discolored caulking around bathtubs and showers; be sure towels and area rugs are bright and sparkly; make certain all light fixtures and bulbs work.
Can You See The Light? Illumination in your home can be the "welcome sign" for every prospect. Turn on all of the exterior and interior lights---including the accent and picture lights---when showing your home at night.
Stay In The Background. The salesperson knows what the buyers need and are looking for, and can best describe and emphasize the best features of your house. Don't tag along. If there are any questions, the salesperson will ask you for information
