SHOWING INSTRUCTIONS– If you are serious about selling, the easier you make it for potential purchasers to see your home, the higher your chances are of receiving an offer. Showing restrictions result in fewer showings which could result in additional days on the market.
First impressions count, especially when it comes to a house that is listed. If staging is not an option, removing personal photos and clutter should be top on the priority list, next to touching up the paint. Turn lights on the give your home a welcome feeling prior to showings.
Every House must be sold twice: to the buyer and to the bank if a mortgage is involved. To get a home sold the price has to be right! Trust your licensed Real Estate broker to study the market in your area and show you the comparable sales when they present their professional price recommendation. The first few days on the market is when your listing has the utmost impact to capture potential buyers. To increase your curb appeal check out these practical tips for creating eye-catching curb appeal without spending a fortune:
Power-washing a cement driveway and remove oil, rust and other stains.
Clear the pathway to your front door by cutting back overgrown landscaping.
Check for cobwebs and wipe down your front door and kick plate. Consider painting or staining your door if it looks faded/worn.
Now is a good time to refresh and prune planted pots to make sure they are blooming with color with what season it is.
A new layer of mulch will immediately improve the look of your yard.
Make your fence pop! A semi-transparent stain evens out signs of repairs and covers discoloration. Don’t forget your deck, steps, rails, shed, ect.
Add some path lighting to highlight the best plants in your yard.
Crystal clear windows are a strong indicator that the house has been well cared for.
