Selling Tips

Property Selling Tips -ProClient Realty>>Property Selling Tips

Preparing your home for sale

When you decide to sell your home, you nee to go through details of your home inside and out to make it as attractive as possible for potential buyers. Remember

First Impression Is The Last Impression

Make A “Good First Impression”

  • Does your home have a good “curb appeal” to a buyer driving the area?
  • Do you need some colorful plants, or some landscaping fill-ins?
  • Does your lawn need to be trimmed or edged? Is your lawn free of refuse.
  • Is the front walkway swept? Remember, the front door greets the prospective buyer. Make sure that it is fresh and clean.

Lighting Inside

Arrange shade of drapes to give maximum light. Turn every light on, even during the day. Replace all burned out bulbs. Let them see how cheerful your home can be.

Small Repairs Make A Big Difference

Loose knobs, sticking and squeaking doors and windows, warped cabinet drawers, badly cracked plaster and other minor flaws detract from home value. Have them fixed. Many buyers believe there will be ten problems they have not noticed for every one they do see.

Make Closets Look Bigger

Neat, well ordered closets show space. Remove all unnecessary accumulations from closets, garage and all rooms. Remove excess furniture. Your home will appear much larger than it actually is.

Little Decoration Makes The Difference

Sometimes minor redecorating is recommended if certain elements of your home are out dated or tired looking. Dark wood, shag carpet, foil and flock wallpaper, etc. can be a turnoff even when the rest of your house is terrific.

Pride Of Ownership Sells

Cleanliness attracts buyers. Put sparkle in your home and it will pay off. For special showings and open houses, colorful fresh flowers give a special touch and show the pride you have in your home.

Show Off Your House

  • Get rid of clutter
  • Arrange furniture for an open feeling; too much furniture makes a room look smaller
  • Flowers and plants add pretty touches to rooms
  • Kitchen counter tops should be free from clutter; put small appliances out of sight
  • Remove the “artwork” from the refrigerator door
  • Clean fingerprints from light switches and woodwork
  • A quick coat of paint works wonders.
  • Organize the closets and cabinets; they will look bigger
  • Bathrooms and kitchens should be sparkling clean
  • Clean away mold and mildew from around bathroom tile and fixtures
  • Clean Air-Conditioner Duct
  • Clean carpet and deodorize
  • Fix loose doorknobs, drippy faucets, torn screens, etc.
  • Remove pet, cigarette, and cooking odors with Potpourri, Air spray, Bake bread or Cookies.

Avoid A Crowd

Buyers prefer privacy when shown through a house. Whenever possible, never stay in your house with potential buyers. That includes pets as well. The buyer will feel more relaxed. If it is necessary for you or your family members to stay, do not discuss terms, price etc. Silence is golden. Be courteous and only answer questions when asked. Do not force conversation, stay away from the buyer. Apologies should never be made for any adverse conditions in your home. It only emphasizes the defects. Let the agent handle any objections or answering any questions.

Things To Do Before Showing

  • Open blinds, drapes and shades – let the light in
  • Turn lights on, especially in dark areas such as hallways and baths.
  • Turn on air conditioning so house temperature is comfortable
  • Open bedroom and bathroom doors
  • Turn off the TV
  • Turn the loud music off; soft music on very low is nice
  • Make sure the beds are made
  • Dishes should be done
  • Keep toilet seats closed
  • Everything should be neat, clean and uncluttered
  • Keep pets outside or out of the way
  • And you, the Seller, should walk outside or run an errand. Buyers are more likely to share their true feelings without the Seller being present.
