- Curb appeal- Take a look at your home from the street and see if something could be improved.
- Showings- Be prepared for your home to be shown. Make arrangements, if at all possible, to be gone while the real estate agent shows your home. Buyers have a tendency to rush through if the homeowner is present.
- Pets- Indoor or outdoor pets can have a negative impact on a potential buyer. Try to minimize the presence of your pet such as toys, food or water bowls and eliminating odors.
- Painting- Fresh paint may help your rooms appear new and clean. Neutral colors appeal to a broader range of buyers.
- Small Repairs- Small repairs can make a big impact on buyers. Look for things that can be easily fixed but may cause a buyer to wonder if other problems exist.
- Work Items- Put away items such as vacuum cleaners, brooms, mops or lawn equipment. These things sometimes remind buyers of work.
- De-Clutter- Rooms appear larger without clutter or excessive furniture. Consider renting a storage shed if your rooms are too crowded and extra space is needed.
- Harmonize- Have soft music on in the back ground makes your home feel more welcome and comfortable. Spray a light room spray just before leaving and open the curtains or blinds and turn the lights on for an inviting feeling.
- Pride in Ownership- Cleanliness attracts buyers. Make sure your bathrooms and kitchen sparkle.
- Depersonalize- A buyer needs to be able to visualize their personal items in your home. Clear off kitchen counters, pack away the collectibles and look for a simpler look.
- Securing Items- As a precaution put away all prescription medications, jewelry, guns and small valuables before your home is shown.
- Consider the weather- Keep your home comfortable during showings. Keep the thermostat around 70 degrees and make sure there’s a mat or rug out for buyers if it’s raining.
