In this market first impressions mean everything. Here are some helpful hints to get your home noticed and appreciated.
Lighten Up: Some people like to live in dark houses. Leave the shades up and the drapes opened. Homes show much better with light.
Size up the Competition: Walk through model homes in your area to see what professionally staged homes look like. You can get a variety of great ideas to prepare your home for sale.
Define the Space: Creatively define each space to highlight its use. Create a mudroom that is neat and orderly, a home office workspace, or a kids afterschool room with chalkboards and desks.
Add Simple Curb Appeal: Thoroughly clear all little branches, rake the leaves, and trim the bushes. Every landscaping detail proves that you care, and this translates to buyer appeal!
Give it a Power Wash: Buy a power washer, it is a great investment! You would be surprised how much better a house looks after a good bath - especially the garage doors.
