DON'T JUST LIST YOUR HOME ... SELL IT!

98% of Buyers make the decision to buy a home based on first impressions. 

…..

This means, online photos, curb appeal, and showing days are critical!

Homes sit on the market Unsold for 1 reason:

PRICE

If you’re home isn’t selling, it’s probably over priced for the condition it’s in.

­What most homeowners fail to realize is that you are competing against other Sellers to snag that one Buyer.  This is why just listing your home may not always be enough.  You need to SELL your home.  Put in some elbow grease and beat out your competition.  Show those Buyers why they should pick your house!

DE-CLUTTER

Closets | Counter Tops | Cabinets | Walls

Less is more.  Always.  Take time to purge (you’ll be glad you did when it comes to moving time!).  The more open space you can show in the home, the better.

 

CLEAN

Baseboards | Windows | Vents | Fans

Buyers correlate the cleanliness of your home to how well you maintain the house itself.  If you have dust and smudges all over, people assume there could be bigger issues that haven’t been taken care of.

 

PET CLEANUP

Odors | Potty Places | Fur | Damage

While you may love your animals like family, others may not.  Clean and tuck away all signs of animals (i.e beds, toys, food, etc).  You want Buyers to see and smell the home, not your pet.

 

REMOVE PERSONALITY

Photos | Unique Art | Bright Colors/Patterns

You make your home just that: YOUR home.  However, now you’re trying to sell it to someone else.  Make it easy for Buyers to envision living in the house.  The more neutral you make the space, the better.
