your life-time REAL ESTATE AGENt
Take the home out of your house. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves live in this. Get rid of a third part of your stuff and out it away in storage. This includes family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes.
Don’t over-upgrade. Quick fixes before the sale always pay off, unlike the mammoth makeovers. With that you most likely will not get your money back.
Get an agent. Make sure you have a broker who is totally informed. They must monitor the MLS and know what properties are going for in the market. Find a broker who embraces technologies, is a tech-savvy and knows how to market your home all over the area, nation- and world-wide.
Light it up. Maximize lighting in your home. After location of your home excellent light is the one thing that every buyer wants in a home. Take down the drapes and clean the windows inside and out.
First impression is the only impression. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive shrubs and flowers. You can typically get a 100% return on the investment that you put into your curb appeal. Entryway are always very important. Have a fresh cut flowers in a vase or even some fresh baked cookies every time you have a showing.
Half-empty closets. Storage is something that every buyer is looking for. Take a half of the stuff out of your closets and then neatly organize what is left. Keep it clean and tidy in all the cabinets.
Price it right. Find out what your home is worth and then shave 15-20% off the price. You will have tons of buyers with multiple (sometimes even escalating) bids even in the worst markets.
Always be ready to show. You never know when your buyer is going to walk through the door. Keep your home nice and clean and be ready to show it anytime.
The kitchen comes first. You are not selling your house, you are selling your kitchen! That’s how important it is. Remodeling your kitchen can probably get 85% of your money back, but you will get better offers with an updated kitchen.
