Open House Prep - CB Prime Properties

In real estate terms, "full disclosure" doesn't mean putting your personal life on display for all to see. Successfully marketing Albany homes for sale involves a certain amount of discretion. Keep these items out of sight and out of mind when staging an open house.

  • Pets
    Hard to believe, but not everyone is going to be as enamored of Fido or Fluffy as you are. In addition, many people suffer from pet allergies, and it's hard for them to focus on your home when they're sniffling and sneezing. Ask a friend or relative to pet-sit for the day. While you're at it, don't forget to remove food and water dishes, toys, and other pet accessories.

Denied mortgage applications are not uncommon, in fact, there are a number of reasons why a buyer may be turned down, including:

  • Insufficient credit history
  • Poor credit score
  • A high debt-to-income ratio
