Curb Appeal Is Everything

Think about it. What are buyers seeing first? It can take seconds for a buyer to say no – based on the exterior looks! You want them immediately attracted to how good the house looks from the outside, so you draw them inside.

Here’s how:

  • Clean up landscaping by trimming trees and shrubs and laying new mulch.
  • Clean windows and remove any tripping hazards from the driveway and porch.
  • Consider subtle yet attractive decor that welcomes potential buyers - a new doorknob is always a plus.

Think of it like this: you want your home as sexy and as appealing as possible to a buyer. How?

Professional Photos of Property is a Must

Buyers all over the country are shopping online, and professional photos can make or break it. In today’s market, making your home the absolute most appealing with help it sell quicker and for top dollar!

  • Show it in its best possible light!
  • Make buyers WANT to see your home. The right photos will do that and draw them in.
  • Entice buyers into your home by showcasing it.

Let’s make this more streamlined for you. While it may take a small effort on your part to begin with, this makes a huge difference:

Eliminate Distractions

  • Pre-pack as you will be moving before you know it!
  • Remove clutter! No one wants to walk into a messy or chaotic environment.
  • Depersonalize. Make your home a potential buyer’s home. Not yours. Decor should be minimal, so buyers see the house and not your personal belongings.

Now, onto some of the technical and mechanical stuff:

Service Equipment to ensure a smooth inspection

  • Make sure of the basics: What does the roof look like? The AC unit and what about the furnace. 
  • Inspection:  A happy buyer wants a clean inspection. Check the basics and details to make that happen. 


Have a Plan

  • Know where and how you will move – when you get a quick buyer.
  • Get pre-approved for a mortgage so you can make a quick offer.
  • Know your wants versus your must-haves so you can make a decision.
  • In this market: Be prepared for a bidding war.
  • Trust your agent as the voice of reason.

This is a perfect start for an excellent selling and/or buying experience.
