We know for a fact that the very BEST homes sell the fastest and for the most money! Think of your home in a beauty contest. The prettiest, most well maintained, and well presented to the public come up the winner every time!
So your asking how do I out-class the other homes for sale. I have the answer and some tips to prepare your home to sell.
1. The first thing a potential buyers sees when they drive up is the front of your home. The landscaping should be clean and manicured, front door freshly painted and door handles in great shape or new.
2. The entry is the gateway to your home and should feel welcoming, clean and smell wonderful upon entering.
3. The rest of your home should be impeccably clean, staged, and updated to maximize your profit.
I believe if you are financially able, you should spend money on some simple updates that make a lot of difference to your bottom line. An example of that would be new lighting fixtures, bathroom and kitchen faucets, door handles replaced, cabinet hardware, carpet if worn and stained and painting rooms to freshen or update colors. Take down heavy out of date draperies, wall hangings and pictures that are out of style. It really does not cost a fortune but makes such a difference to the eye of the discriminating buyer. A clean, fresh, new look is better than a cluttered one and today, less is more for showing a home.
Bring in a stager or organizer to help you de-clutter and make your home look like a model out of a magazine. It is possible with help from a great Realtor and her team of experts to expedite the tasks you need accomplished. Result: You win the beauty contest and bring in the big prize…quick sale and the most money!!
