Creating Great First Impressions

  • Maximize Curb Appeal. If the landscaping and outside appearance of the home is uninviting, buyers may decide not to purchase your home without ever leaving their car.  Sweep the walk way and repair any cracks, trim your shrubs, put out an inviting door mat, and touch up your paint.  In the winter, make sure the walk way is well shoveled at all times. It may be worth the investment to hire a company to do this for you.
  • Window Washing. This can maximize your home’s views. Views can be a huge selling factor and you want buyers to notice them.
  • Replace Your Light Bulbs – Buyers want a bright home.  Change out you light bulbs, whether burnt out or not, with new high wattage LED bulbs. If you know you have a showing, consider leaving the lights on.
  • Clean your carpets. It will help to remove any odors and show that your home is clean and well maintained. If there are stains, consider replacing the carpets.
  • Paint the Walls. If the walls are not in pristine condition, paint them a neutral color. A fresh coat of paint will make the place look better and a neutral color will appeal to the most people. Scuff-marks can be cleaned with a cleaning product called the Magic Eraser.
  • Eliminate clutter. Take a good look at your closets and remove 1/2 of their contents. Clean out the drawers and cabinets in your bathroom. Remove extra furniture and other items. If you have a garage, make sure it’s clean and nearly empty. A home with less clutter looks larger.
  • Store Personal Items. You want the buyers to picture themselves owning the home.
