  • Enhance your property, your efforts do not need to be costly; even inexpensive improvements and minor repairs go far towards attracting serious buyers.

  • A new coat of paint cleans up your living space and makes it look bright and new.  To make rooms look larger, choose light, neutral colors that will appeal to the most people possible.


  • Clear the Clutter.  People are turned off by rooms that look and feel cluttered.  Remember, potential buyers are buying your house, not your furniture, so help them picture themselves and their possessions in your home by making your rooms feel large, light, neutral and airy.  As you clean, pack away your personal items, such as pictures, valuables and collectibles and store or get rid of surplus books, magazines, videotapes, extra furniture, rugs, blankets, etc.


  • Clean your home, make everything shine, windows, window sills, floors, light fixtures, kitchen and bathrooms. 


  • Closet space is an important consideration to many buyers.  By storing clothing you won’t use soon, you’ll make closets look more spacious.


  • Curb Appeal.  Prune bushes and hedges, trim trees, mow lawn, fertilize, edge and trim, weed gardens, plant flowers, shovel walkways and driveways, de-ice, seal asphalt driveway, store tools and garbage pails out of sight, stain or paint deck.




  • The first step in selling any home should be to arrange to get Comparative Market Analyses (CMA) for your home from three different Realtors®.  Compare the CMAs to set the price of your home, if one CMA is significantly higher than the others be suspicious of how that number was reached.  The most important factor in Selling a Home is PRICING IT RIGHT!


  • Choosing the right Realtor®, interview several; ask those key questions;  i.e., Experience Level, Full or Part Time, Marketing Strategies, etc.  Select the Realtor® that is the best match for you. 


  • Allow prospective Buyers to comfortably examine your property, don’t try to force a sale instead be friendly and hospitable pointing out any unnoticed amenities and being receptive to questions.  This is not the time for negotiation and salesmanship!


  • Try to accommodate all showing requests, selling a home is an inconvenience but if you want it to sell it must be seen.
