  • Landscaping: First impressions are critical. Therefore, a home’s curb appeal can play a key role from the start. Often, it is the curb appeal that is the deciding factor as to whether a buyer wants to see what the home has to offer inside. A freshly manicured, landscaped yard could be just what it takes to get your buyer in the door!

  • Lighting: Well-lit, warm, and inviting lighting will enhance your property and draw buyers in. It is essential to look at the interior and exterior lighting in and around your home as it can immediately impact the ambiance. You also want to keep in mind that lighting plays a key role when your home is being shown. Make sure all the lights in your home are on – it provides a welcoming feeling as buyers move from room to room!

  • Painting – Interior / Exterior: A fresh coat of paint makes all the difference! Paint can instantly create a clean canvas for buyers to imagine themselves living in that space. Always keep it neutral, light, and airy.

  • Carpet: It is difficult, if not impossible, for buyers to overlook worn out and stained carpets. Eliminate an eyesore with new carpeting. It always rejuvenates a space!

  • Decluttering: Declutter, declutter, declutter! Over time, you have decorated to your liking and have accumulated “stuff,” but buyers need to be able to see past that. Decluttering and depersonalizing are two of the most important things a seller can do to help get their home sold!

  • Minor Plumbing: Leaky pipes, dripping faucets, running toilets, and low water pressure can be an instant turn off because it is a red flag for potential water damage. For most buyers, signs of water damage are a game-changer no matter how interested they are in a home.

  • Staging: Having your home professionally staged can make all the difference with getting your home sold. Stagers are not emotionally tied to the home and can redesign spaces to optimize the appeal to potential buyers. You want buyers to be able to picture themselves living in the home with the ability to visualize their furniture in different rooms. Stagers can make that happen!

  • Minor Electrical: Always fix flickering lights and non-working outlets before allowing any potential buyers to walk through your home. If not fixed, these items can trigger a negative feeling on the part of the buyer.
