1. Curb Appeal.
Keeping your landscape pristine and adding creative touches to your yard, such as colorful annuals, will create an immediate impact on passers-by and potential buyers.
2. Property Repairs.
Simple upgrades such as window repairs, polishing the doorknobs, and a fresh coat of paint in the most frequently used rooms will instantly brighten up the property.
3. Cleanliness and Staging.
Keep your property uncluttered, sweet-smelling and well-lit from top-to-bottom. Pay attention to details: put away the kitty litter, place a vase of fresh flowers near the entryway, pop a batch of cinnamon rolls in the oven, have your carpets cleaned. I will scan the property before it is listed for sale to see how you can improve the staging of your property.
4. Disclosures and Inspections.
We are very familiar with the legal procedures involved in disclosures and are ready to help you develop a thorough disclosure statement beneficial to both you and the buyer, as well as suggest home improvement measures before placing your property on the market (such as termite and pest inspections).
It's important that during appointments you and your family allow the buyer privacy. While it can be inconvenient to leave your home for every appointment it is in the end the most beneficial. Buyers will feel more comfortable discussing a home and it's potential when the homeowner is not there. The buyer's comfort can make the difference between a sale and your home sitting on the market.
If this is something that concerns you I would be happy to discuss some alternatives to try and find a creative solution that will satisfy buyers and ease your worries.
