Tips for selling your house

Selling your house can be a stressful time. Our agents are trained to help you through this transitional time period. Our agents will help you with a list of things that will make your property show better to potential buyers.

There are many things that should be done before listing a property for sale. The most important is to clean, clean, clean! Remember the first impression can be the last impression you have to get a buyer interested in your house.

1. Clean inside and outside.
2. Touch up any paint that needs it, both inside and outside.
3. Does your property have curb appeal? Does your house look welcoming from the street? Could you trim trees, bushes or shrubs to improve the look? Do you need to weed the garden? Could planting some bright pretty flowers make the property more inviting?
4. Clear away ALL clutter. De-personalize your house. Remember that you want prospective buyers to visually their family in the house.
5. Stage the home. Remove half of everything in closets and cabinets. Should certain pieces of furniture be removed to make the room look more open?
6. Remove pets and their paraphernalia before all showings. Make sure that it is not obvious that you have pets. While most people love animals; no one wants to buy a house that smells like a kennel! Make sure all odors are eliminated.
7. Make sure all the lights are working, and the home is bright and well lit.
