Preparing Your House for Sale

One of the first things we will do before putting your house on the market is prepare your house for sale. We want to show your house off in its best light to maximize your earning potential. We will tour your house with the eye of a buyer - what works, what doesn't work.

Our Service

As part of our service we provide a complete walk through is written suggestions to increase value and/or speed of sale that typically cost much less than the value they add. Here are some general tips. Contact us for a professional evaluation!
 
Curb Appeal

Does your home have curb appeal? This is the first impression and can set the tone for the entire showing! Can we give it a little more pizzazz to draw the buyer in? Would a bit of touch-up paint add dollars to the sale? Is the lawn clean and well kept? Are flowers in bloom? If not, it may be time for a landscape upgrade. Remember, creating curb appeal will add dollars to your house's final selling price.

Welcome Home

As we walk in the door of your house, we will ask ourselves, "Will this house say, 'Welcome home' to a buyer?" Looking through the eyes of a buyer, we will recommend changes that will enhance sales appeal.

We will help you eliminate anything that gives the appearance of clutter. Counter tops should be free and clear. Knickknacks, souvenirs, family photos, refrigerator artwork - it's gone. We need to "de-personalize" the house so buyers can imagine it as their home.

Closets and cupboards should appear large and roomy. It's time to make a donation to a local charity or store belongings at a friend's or family member's home.

Reviewing your home room-by-room, We will make recommendations that impact the sale. We will point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be changed, fixtures that need polishing, windows that need cleaning, and any other improvement that can easily be made to promote the sale.

Setting the Stage

Before the first buyer walks in your door, We will show you how to set the stage. We want to engage the buyer's senses. Lighting is critical. We'll draw back curtains, open blinds, change light bulbs and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. We'll enhance the ambiance with music playing lightly in the background and insure a pleasing aroma emanates from every room.
