THE INTERIOR - JUST AS IMPORTANT    BUYERS SHOULD  FEEL POSESSION

First impressions are everything to potential home buyers - and in many cases the decision to consider the purchase is initially based on your home's curb appeal.   Here are a few easy and inexpensive things you can do to quickly shape up your home's exterior:

  •  Remove Clutter:  Remove unnecessary items from the front of the house and store garbage cans and gardening supplies neatly out of sight in your garage or shed.
  • Freshen-Up:  Clean the windows, paint the front door, and replace worn doormats and screens.
  • Make Sure It Works:  Replace broken door bells, outdoor lighting, wobbly handrails and loose paving stones.
  • Consider The Rear View:  Buyers will want to see your backyard.  The same rules apply; keep it tidy, colorful, well maintained, de-cluttered and functional. Stow excess furniture and all children's toys.
  • It's Showtime:  Take a quick look around before prospective buyers arrive.
  • Make It Cozy - Check the thermostat to make sure potential buyers are comfortable enough to linger.
  • Awaken Other Senses - Bake some cookies, light a scented candle or play soft music in the background. These subtle sensory stimuli can enhance the pleasant impression of your home.
  • Lighten Up - Make your home feel bright and alive - pull open window coverings and turn on all lights, even the ones over appliances and in closets.  

EIGHT SECONDS. That's all it takes for most buyers to form a first opinion of your house.  IT'S NOT LONG, so you need to make it count.  Ideally, your home will impress and motivate a buyer to swiftly make an offer.  We are dedicated to selling your property at the best price possible in the shortest amount of time.  ​

  • Clean Up - Cleaning every room from top to bottom is an absolute must, including closets and cabinets.  Don't forget to mop hardwood floors to make them shine.
  • De-clutter and De-personalize - Buyers want to imagine themselves living in your space.  Help them by removing personal items, pictures and knickknacks from walls and tables.
