Selling Tips

Selling a home is one of the most important decisions a person will have to make in their lifetime. This experience can be daunting unless you are working together with a professional real estate broker who understands the process. The first step is to have us provide you with a Home Valuation that will provide data regarding recent sales activity and determine the current market value for your property.

When Selling a Home

A seller should never underestimate the importance of making a good first impression on a potential buyer. Here are a few simple tips that will help increase your home's appeal and value:

An Appealing Exterior

  • Keep the front walkway swept
  • Remove newspapers, bikes or toys from the front walk or yard
  • Park extra cars away from the property
  • Trim back the shrubs
  • Apply a fresh coat of exterior paint if necessary
  • Clean windows and window coverings
  • Make sure roof and gutters are in good condition
  • Keep the lawn mowed and plant flowers when practical
  • A Clean and Inviting Interior

  • Keep the kitchen and bathrooms spotless
  • Vacuum carpets and keep all floor surfaces clean
  • Put dishes and laundry away
  • Make beds
  • Keep closets neat
  • Open drapes and turn on lights to enhance atmosphere
  • Switch off the television
  • Keep pets out of the way and pet areas clean and odor free
  • Avoid clutter to enhance the spaciousness of your home
  • Generally speaking, potential buyers usualy feel more comfortable when owners are not present. If an interested party is unaccompanied by an agent and requests to see your property, please refer them to us and we will handle the scheduling of an appointment. If you are leaving town, even for a weekend, remember to leave the number where you can be reached so that offers can be made promptly.

    Through our commitment to Personal Service and Professional Representation, we will coordinate all of the steps to complete the sale of your property.
