Potential buyers often drive by a house before they decide if they want to see the inside.
Make sure the front door area looks nice. Put away personal photos, knickknacks,
and anything else that will distract the buyer from the house.
Take the time to make bathrooms and kitchen sparkle.
Clean kitchen appliances, don’t forget under the sink. Wash the windows.
A little paint can go a long way in making your home saleable.
Repaint much used rooms in neutral colors to make them look clean & fresh.
Remove extra unwanted furniture and arrange remaining pieces in a way
that creates a smooth traffic flow.
People never forget smells when they walk in a door.
Try your best to remove orders caused by pets, smoking and cooking.
Take a hard look around your home from a buyers prospective.
Oil door and window hinges, fix loose handrails etc.
Wall sconces, recessed lighting or pendant lights are good alternatives to
that single old-fashioned overhead light fixture.
