Become A Savvy Seller
As a homeowner, you play a very important
part in the timely sale of your property. Below are a few steps for you to help us work with
you in selling your home as soon as the market allows and at the best price.
First Impressions, Lasting Memory.
"Curb appeal" is an important term in the vocabulary of any real estate sales
professional. When you stand curbside at your home, what do you see? A well-manicured
lawn? A clutter-free porch? Freshly painted — or at least freshly scrubbed — walls? A
few minutes spent looking at your home the way potential buyers will see it will make
their decision to buy your home that much quicker.|
Now To The Inside . . . .
"Curb appeal" is only half of the equation in the successful and profitable sale of your
home. The other half is the impression made when your potential buyer first steps into
the house. Spend a little time now cleaning up scuff marks on the floor and the walls.
Fresh wallpaper, and even some fresh paint are just some simple worthwhile investments
that will pay dividends when your prospective buyer makes an offer to buy.|
Check Faucets and Bulbs.
Do you have an annoying drip from one of your faucets that you don't notice any more?
Well, you may have gotten used to it, but to your prospective buyer it will stand out —
loud and clear! Burned out light bulbs, or some faulty wiring not repaired will detract
from what's right with your home.|
Do The Doors Work?
If cabinets or closet doors stick in your home, you can be sure they will "stick" in the
minds of your prospective buyers. Don't leave it to the real estate professional showing
your home to "check in" on this problem — do it yourself, and do it now!|
Be Safety Conscious.
Do you have slippery throw-rugs, "booby traps" on the stairs, or extension cords lying
about on your floors? You may not notice them, but your prospective buyers will, and it
may leave them wondering about other "problems" not so readily seen.|
Space, the Buyer's Frontier.
Potential buyers are not only looking for a comfortable place to live — they are also
looking for storage space. So, when they look into your closets, or basement or attic,
make sure they see clear space that is free of unnecessary items|
Organize, Organize, Organize.
The better organized you make your closet space, the larger it will appear. Start boxing
up unwanted clothes and other items. Plan a garage sale, or donate these items to some
Make That Bathroom Sparkle.
Here's something every real estate sales professional knows: bathrooms sell homes.
Well, make your bathrooms shine! Make repairs to damaged or unsightly caulking in the tub
or the shower. Change your shower curtain, and put out the best towels.|
Is Your Bedroom Dull?
If so, get rid of any excess furniture, spruce up the paint or wallpaper, clean the
carpets and put out some colorful bedspreads and curtains. Wow, what a difference this
will make, and if you can see it, think about what your potential buyers will say!|
The Power of Light.
Pull back the curtains in the daytime, and turn on lights throughout the house in the
evening. Light in the day makes the house feel cheery and well lived in, while light at
night gives the feeling of warmth and "home."|
Security In Numbers?
This isn't always true when your are trying to sell your home. If there are too many
people crowded about the house, potential buyers will rush through instead of giving your
home the time it deserves. Keep the crowd in your home to a minimum, or, better yet, step
outside, or go for a walk or a ride while your potential buyers take a tour of your home.|
What To Do With The Animals?
Dogs and cats are great companions, but not when you are trying to sell your home. They
have a habit of getting underfoot, appearing in places you least want them to. Rule of
thumb: Keep your animals outside, or at least out of the way.|
Meet With Your Agent.

more time. If there are some areas that you think need some extra explanation, write
them down and discuss them with us. Let us field all questions while you stay in the
