Sellers Maximize Your Home's Potential For Sales
Simple changes can impact how quickly your property sells and at what price
Many cosmetic changes can be made with minimal time and expense. Buyers will be comparing your property to competing properties. So here are a few practical tips to help yours stand out above the rest.
Eliminating clutter will make your property feel larger and brighter. If your property is uncluttered and neutral, prospective buyers can explore it comfortably and envision it with their own personal touches.
Making certain repairs can also add to its value. If you think something is too much trouble to fix, chances are buyers will too.
Present a clean home to a buyer. Kitchen & bathrooms should shine, trash should be emptied, personal items should be put away, & beds made.
PRIOR TO SHOWING
