No one want to step into a house with leak coming from the ceilings; landscape is also important, first impression is the one that lasts, and you need to make sure everything is well maintained and in proper function.
Do some homework and read decorating magazines to have an idea what is the current trend. People are drawn to homes with a contemporary look. Buy some lamps or just small stuff to increase your estate’s potential and attractiveness.
Your agent called and a potential buyer is on his way? Open all the curtains and turn on all lights in the house to create a warm, inviting atmosphere.
You have pictures with you and your family spread across the entire house? Hide them as long as your estate it’s on the market. Buyers need to picture themselves and feel like home in your house.
As crazy as it might sound to you, studies have shown that color yellow triggers spending instinct in the human brain. Either you plant some flowers, or just place some fresh cut ones on your entryway, do it.
When expecting a visit from a potential buyer, make sure you have clean, well-arranged bathroom towels, and place beautiful new linens on the beds in the entire house. Details count!! Your bathroom has to be spotless; add some boutique bath products;
You were once a buyer so you might know the importance of a well-equipped kitchen; ask our agents on how to give yours sparkle; new cupboard and drawer handles will add life to an old kitchen;
Keep your house ventilated and place some flagrant candles, bake something before your buyer shows at your front door. Buyers are not impressed with odors and odd smells.
You have an exceptional front door mat that stayed there since you moved in? Invest some money and buy a new one, don’t remind buyers that you stayed twenty years in that house.
Especially in smaller rooms, removing the furnitre can give the impression of space.
Do not start with a high price which you will lower later if the house fails to sell. This will only result in a slower sale.

The more flexible you are about visits, the more people will be able to see your home. Be ready for prospective visitors early in the morning, at night and on weekends, with little notice.
Hide your cat’s litter; prospective buyer shouldn’t even know that a pet lives in the home if you can help it.
Our agents gain their knowledge after years of research, so you will receive the best package possible. Quality photography of the home is also important. A study by Trulia.com shows that listings with more than 6 pictures are twice as likely to be viewed by buyers as listings that had fewer than 6 pictures.
