Buying or Selling a home can be a complex adventure, rest assure you can rely on Lisa's expert negotiation skills and her professionalism to facilitate a smooth real estate transaction.
Of all the things homeowners control when selling their home, the condition of the property is the most important.
In order to compete effectively with other Sellers, homeowners must present their homes to the marketplace in great condition, buyers will always seek the best priced property in the best condition.
Making a to do list will keep you on track. Starting with the exterior of your property, great curb appeal will help your property make a great first impression.
Take a good look at your property through the critical eyes of a buyer. Ask yourself: Is there anything that needs repair, looks worn, or outdated? Prioritize your list, things to consider:
Continue your list inside starting at your front door. Buyers should see a neat, well lit home. De-cluttering is just as important inside the home, if not more!
Some items to pay attention to: Windows – inside and out Mirrors, light switches and cupboard handles
All flooring and shampoo carpets if necessary Baseboards, dust or freshen up with a coat of paint Cupboards and cabinets should be cleaned and decluttered Light fixtures, ensure light bulbs are bright to maximize on lighting
As you are working to prepare your property for sale strive to create a neutral presentation to appeal to the greatest number of buyers in your marketplace. Enhancing your home prior to your first showing is ideal since your best showings come early in the listing period.
