By following these suggestions you will help get your home sold. You want every buyer that stops by to remember that your home is welcoming and ready to move into.
Tidy up the grounds, porches, garage and walkways. Keep lawn trimmed and edged. Make sure that your yard is clean of all yard waste.
Your front door gives a vital first impression while a realtor and prospect wait for you to answer the bell. Be sure it is scrubbed clean.
Dress up windows in freshly laundered curtains.
If any painting is needed (especially kitchen) do it now! Bathrooms help sell homes. Make this room sparkle.
Keep all steps clear of hazards.
Don’t forget to replace all blown bulbs. Light is like a welcome sign. The potential buyers will feel a glowing warmth when you turn on all your lights for an evening inspection.
Wash dishes and put away, put away clothes, straighten up newspapers, etc.
Make up beds with attractive spreads.
Keep pets out of the way when showing. (One type of prospect is annoyed, the other gets attention diverted.)
Avoid having too many people present during inspections. The potential buyer will feel like an intruder and will hurry through the house. Do not allow children to tag along on the visitors’ tour.
Leave showing the house up to the realtor. The realtor knows the buyer’s requirements and can best emphasize the features of your home. You will be called if needed.
Don’t discuss anything concerning the sale with the customer. Let the realtor discuss price, terms, possession, and other items with the customer. They are eminently qualified to bring negotiations to a favorable conclusion.
Never apologize for appearance. It only accents or distracts.
Never try to sell furniture to a customer before the deal is complete.
