Is your agent able to market your property appropriately to find the right buyer? Is your agent available and willing to work with you in presenting your home in the most favorable way? Do you want an agent who is invested in helping you sell your home or one that is comfortable just sitting back and waiting?

Initial impression means a lot. That first impression can determine whether a buyer will even want to look at your home or even get past the MLS photograph. Now is the time to take a constructive look at the exterior of your home including paint, yard, and cleanliness. Clean up lawn debris, trim plants, remove dead plants, and make sure your lawn is a reasonable length. Make your entry attractive and inviting. This is something to be maintained consistently until your home is sold.
Don’t worry, Robert will help show you how to keep your home in quick selling shape. After all, a good presentation could mean the difference between getting your asking price and having to settle for a little bit less.
First impressions don’t end at the curb. Once inside, a buyer is visualizing if this could be their dream home. They are attempting to figure out if their furniture will fit, what kind of work does the house need to be pleasing to them, and is there enough room in cabinets, closets and living space. Above all, you want to make sure your house is clean. Upkeep is critical which means you want to avoid dirty dishes in the sink, unmade beds, and unclean pet areas. The goal is to have your home and its amenities sparkling and attractive. This can be daunting if you have a busy family, however it is critical to bring “home” the entire appeal of your home to a potential buyer.
Be Strategic About What is in Your Rooms
Small rooms full of furniture or toys might be the way you live, but the way you live is not what you’re selling. You want buyers to be able to visualize how they can place their things in the space you’re selling. This means they need to be able to see a clutter-free space. Rearranging furniture, eliminating furniture and knick-knacks, and creating “empty” space presents a home that is light and airy. People do make assessments about what they are viewing. If your house is unkept and filled to the brim with “things,” potential buyers are going to see the way you live, not the house you live in.
What you can do before a buyer shows up
When you get the call an agent would like to schedule a viewing, there are some practical tips to give your home the best show. Light gives the impression of openness. Open your curtains/blinds. If it’s already dark, turn key lights on that really feature your home and give it that intimate “I’m at home” feel. It also can open up an otherwise small room. Make sure your pets are contained and do any last minute pick-up. Do your best to not leave things out whether it’s kid or pet toys, dishes on the kitchen counter or toothpaste on the bathroom counter.
Plan on being absent.
When buyers come knocking, they can feel pressured if the owners are home. The more responsive you are to showing your home, even at the last minute, the more available you appear to agents for selling your home. In your absence, potential buyers have time to look, open, investigate, talk, and dream about your home’s potential as their new home.
Following these basic tips helps make your home someone’s potential dream home. Let Robert answer your questions about how to sell and present your property favorably.
Selling your home doesn’t have to be complicated. Allow Robert to walk you through the process of selling your home and finding your next dream home. Be aware of your neighborhood. Your neighborhood housing impacts the price potential of your own home.
