Tips for Sellers

A seller should never underestimate the importance of making a good first impression on a potential buyer. Here are a few simple tips that can help increase your home's appeal and value.

Exterior:
  • Keep the front walkway swept
  • Remove newspapers, bikes and toys from the front walk or yard
  • Park extra cars away from the property
  • Trim back the shrubs
  • Apply a fresh coat of exterior paint if necessary
  • Clean windows and window coverings
  • Keep plumbing in working order
  • Maintain all sealants (sink, tub, window, shower, etc.) in good condition
  • Make sure roof and gutters are in good condition
  • Mow the lawn frequently and plant flowers; hire a professional landscaping company if necessary
Interior:
  • Keep the kitchen and bathrooms spotless
  • Vacuum carpets and keep floor surfaces clean
  • Accent living and dining rooms with freshly cut flowers
  • Put dishes and laundry away
  • Make beds
  • Open drapes and turn on lights to enhance the atmosphere
  • Keep closets neat
  • Put toys away
  • Switch off the television or have soft background music only playing
  • Keep pets out of the way and pet areas clean and odor-free
  • Put away valuables: jewelry, cash, prescription medication
  • Avoid clutter to enhance the spaciousness of your home
  • A pleasing, welcoming scent enhances the appeal of any home
  • Turn ceiling fans to a low setting to draw attention
  • Consider painting any brightly colored rooms a neutral color
Generally speaking, potential buyers usually feel more comfortable when owners are not present. If an interested party is unaccompanied by an agent and request to see your property, please refer them to your real estate professional for an appointment. If you are leaving town, even for a weekend, remember to leave the number where you can be reached so that offers can be made promptly. Contact us today to begin the listing process!
