Selling Tips…

 

1.      First impressions are the most lasting

When potential home buyers shop for their new homes, they look for places where they can envision themselves comfortably settled into the place.

 

2.      Interior details

Remember to have the minor items fixed. Leaving them unfixed can lead to a potential decrease in the value of the property. Here are a few things to improving your home first impression:
  • Repair damage glass screens
  •  Install brighter energy efficient light bulbs
  • Patch small holes in walls and ceilings
  • Repaint if necessary
  • Make sure there are no leaking pipes and faucets

 

3.      Exterior details

Exterior details play a vital part in increasing property value.
  • Clean gutters and repair/replace if they are damaged
  • Make sure the heating and air-conditioning systems are serviced and working
  • Chimneys needs to be professionally cleaned
  • Have your grass trimmed and fallen leaves removed
  • Clear driveway and clean up oil spills

 

4.      Windows and Doors

  • Make sure all your windows are open and close easily. If necessary, use WD40.
  • Replace any cracks or broken window panes.
  • Do the same things with the doors. Make sure the door knobs turn easily and they are cleaned and polished to look sharp.
  • As buyers go from room to room, having both the windows and doors working properly creates a positive impression.
5.      Kitchen  
  • Clean the sink, stove, and refrigerator
  • Clear counters, drawers, and cabinets of unnecessary items
  • Make sure there are no dirty dishes in the sink
  • Clear space under the kitchen sink because everyone checks the plumbing under the sink
  • Sweep and mop the floor. Empty the trash. Clean and spray garbage bin area
6.      Pricing
Figuring out the best price for your property is not an easy task. Keep in mind if you price your property too low, it may sell quickly. However, your property may not achieve its’ fair market value. Pricing it too high, may lead to longer selling time or it may not sell at all.
