Creating the Right First Impression

  • We can help you maximize your home's "drive up" appeal

  • As the home owner, you should give your home a clean and welcoming look 

    • Before you put your home on the market, it is important to make the needed repairs, clean, paint, and stage your home properly by having such things as an inviting furniture arrangement, clean and uncluttered counters, and opened blinds.

    • A well-kept lawn with trimmed trees and shrubs is important, since it creates the first impression a prospect receives. 

    • Both the exterior and interior of the home needs to be clutter-free and inviting

  • As Real Estate professionals, we can help prepare your home for the market.

 

Inspection

  • Being a proactive seller is very important 

  • We suggest having an inspection done on your home prior to putting in on the market. This allows you to find and fix any big items that would potentially deter a buyer. It also helps the buyer understand that you have maintained your property well

 

Organize

  • Good organization helps your home appear larger

  • Before putting your house for sale, it is important to purge all unneeded and unncessary items that will make your home seem cluttered and crowded. 

    • Donate unneeded clothes and items that you do not use 

    • organize everything else so it has a designated spot in your house

 

Kitchens and Bathrooms

  • Kitchens and bathrooms sell homes! Make them sparkle!

  • Clean, paint and caulk needed areas

  • Remove clutter from countertops

  • For added allure, display your best towels, mats, and shower curtains.

 

Bedrooms

  • A well-organized bedroom free of clutter and accented tastefully will be inviting to potential buyers

  • Create a spacious look by removing excess furniture

  • Be sure the closets are also free of clutter and well organized

 

Showing Tips

  • During the day, open the window covers to let in as much natural light as possible 

  • Turn on interior lights, close closet doors, keep toilet seats down, close open drawers and perhaps turn on some pleasant music to create an inviting atmosphere 

  • The natural brightness of the exterior light and your interior lights will help your home feel bright and happy

  • For evening showings, also turn on exterior and interior lights to create brightness and warmth

  • Also to ensure the prospective buyer will thoroughly and freely walk through your house, it is recommended that you make plans to be away from your house during the showing.  

 

Pets

  • Pets may be great companions, but not when you're showing your home.

  • It is important to have pets out of the way of propsective buyers
