First Impressions in Real Estate Make a Difference
Experience shows that taking time to prepare your home increases desirability, provides a marketing “edge” and results in shorter market time while assuring the highest return.
Before presenting your home to buyers
- I will give you a checklist to help you to prepare your home for sale.
- I can also help you stage your home or refer you to an accredited staging professional.
Before buyers come to your home
- Turn on all inside lights, even during the day.
- At night, turn on outside lights.
- Turn on soft music.
- Keep heat at 68 degrees.
- Keep pets in a separate area; change litter boxes daily.
- Put money and other valuables away and out of sight.
- Keep draperies and shades open.
- Open all doors inside the home, except closets.
When an agent shows your home
- A buyer will likely spend more time previewing your home if you are not in the home.
- If you can’t leave the home, group children around the television with the volume on low, or have them play in a specially designated area.
- Don’t precede or follow the buyer through your home.
- Let the sales associate show and sell your home.
