Preparing Your House for Sale
One of the first things we will do before putting your house on the market is give you expert advise on preparing your house for sale. We want to show your house off in its best light to maximize your earning potential. We will view your house with the eye of a buyer - what works, what doesn't work.
As we walk in the door of your house, we will ask ourselves, "Will this house say 'Welcome home' to a buyer?" Looking through the eyes of a buyer, we will recommend changes that will enhance sales appeal.
Closets and cupboards should appear large and roomy. It's time to make a donation to a local charity or store belongings at a friend's or family member's home.
Reviewing your home room-by-room, we will make recommendations that impact the sale. We'll point out the pieces of furniture that should be removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be changed, fixtures that need polishing, windows that need cleaning, and any other improvement that can easily be made to promote the sale.
Setting the Stage...
Before the first buyer walks in your door, we'll show you how to set the stage. We want to engage the buyer's senses. Lighting is critical. We'll draw back curtains, open blinds, change light bulbs and add lighting where needed to welcome the buyer. We'll enhance the ambiance with music playing lightly in the background and insure a pleasing aroma emanates from every room.
We will continue to promote fair competition preventing monopolies in the real estate business for the benefit of all consumers as lower commissions keeps more of homeowner's hard earned equity in their pockets.
