Tips On Selling

  • Help potential buyers envision themselves living in your home by removing family photos, trophies, posters, etc. Make it as neutral as possible (but not necessarily boring).
  • Showcase your home’s space by removing excess furniture and clutter, including the closets. Then consider staging areas of your home to make them appealing to the majority of potential buyers. You can do this by adding tasteful accent colors with throw pillows, area rugs, and artwork. Arrange furniture in a way that highlights each space’s possibilities. In some cases, you might consider hiring a professional home stager.
  • Accentuate the positive features throughout your home. Remove any plants or furnishings that may obscure key features like fireplaces, windows, or unique architectural details.
  • Refrain from using overpowering air fresheners, candles, or fragrances. Remember, everyone’s taste is different. Your favorite scent may be a turnoff to prospective buyers.
  • Curb appeal is the first impression. A tidy lawn and landscaping gives an indication of what the interior holds. If the shutters are crooked and the front door needs a fresh coat of paint, potential buyers may be turned off, assuming the home is in disrepair and has not been well maintained. Leaky faucets and loose doorknobs are also signs of neglect.
  • Remember, kitchens and bathrooms are key selling points. Fresh calking, new fixtures and floor coverings make a world of difference.
  • A deep cleaning is a must. Clean the windows, clear the cobwebs (inside & out), and dust the ceiling fans. Display cases and china cabinets should be in prime showing condition as well.
