This market is a challenge, that’s a given. So if you are interested in selling, you need to really make your home pop. I came across this article on MSN and I thought it was worth sharing. There are seven easy ways to help your home sell, even in this difficult market.
#1 MAINTAIN NEUTRAL – Stay away from crazy color schemes, don’t distract buyers with your “artistic” visions
#2 LESS IS MORE – Less furniture makes the space look bigger
#3 THAT NEW HOUSE SMELL – Smells can make or break a deal, be mindful of strong odors.
#4 PAY ATTENTION TO DETAILS – Things like new outlet covers or covering small holes where art use to hang can make a big difference
#5 MAXIMIZE YOUR “CURB APPEAL” – For our single family home sellers, keep lawn and landscaping under control
#6 DON’T GET TOO PERSONAL – Take down some of your pictures, put away clothes and mail.
#7 TAKE CARE OF REPAIRS – Knowing and fixing problems before you find a buyer is always a must. You don’t want the surprise of replacing the furnase ruin a deal.
If you are interested in selling your home, please contact me, I would love the opportunity to work with you.
