Hot Tips
to help you sell your house!

____________________________________

Once you’ve decided to put your home on the market, it’s important to take a close look at it from the view-point of a prospective buyer. Objectively evaluating each area and then making your home “show ready” can have a major pay-off in terms of the offers it will attract and how soon those offers come in.

THE BIG PICTURE
There are seven key steps to making your home seem larger, more appealing and, therefore, more valuable.

1.  KEEP IT UNCLUTTERED
      It   will   be  neater  and   look larger.  You
     want to convey a spacious feeling.

2.  KEEP IT CLEAN
      This creates the impression that your
      home has been well cared for.  Fresh
      paint and a good scrubbing makes rooms
      look clean and new.

3.  KEEP IT REPAIRED  
       Fix it before the buyer inquires about
     it.  The need for repairs can make or
     break a sale.

4.  KEEP IT NEUTRAL
      Get  rid  of  distracting colors and
      personal accessories.  Neutral colors
      and simple décor help someone 
      visualize their own belongings in 
      a room.

5.  KEEP IT DYNAMIC
     Make your home memorable! From
     fresh flowers to fresh clean smells,
     your house should be inviting.

6.  KEEP IT LIGHT AND BRIGHT
     Open curtains and drapes to let the
     sunshine in.  Turn on the lights so 
     your rooms come to life.  

7.  SHOWTIME!
      Make a final check of every room.  
      Put away any toys, clothes, food or 
      other “left out” items.
