Our Goal is to work with you!
To get your home sold!
When John and I go on a listing appointment, we will ask you if you would like us to make recommendations as to what you, the seller, can do to help your home sell. There are sellers that want to sell their home "as is" and there are others that prefer to make repairs and improvements in order to maximize their profit and have their home sell in a shorter period of time.We do believe that if you are in a position to make repairs or some minor improvements ,it is in your best interest to do so.
Here are a few of the items that we recommend to our clients:
1. Declutter your home....remove excess furniture that block doorways because you want to give the feeling of spaciousness. Remove multiple personal photos that are lined up along the wall that you see in an art gallery!
2.Clean the carpet or if worn, then replace it.
3.Fingerprints/dirt on walls should be touched up with fresh paint. If rooms need painting, then it is best to do so.Most importantly would be to paint the front door if needed.
4.Remove most everything off of kitchen & bathroom countertops except for absolute necessities. Clean the kitchen appliances.
5.Remove over-abundance of clothes out of closets since it gives appearance that closets are too small.
6.Remove almost everything out of the garage except for the vehicles and bicycles.
7.Keep bushes trimmed and lawn mowed. Keep bicycles, toys, etc put away so the front of the yard has curb appeal. Some fresh mulch at the front of the house helps and even a potted colorful flower near the front porch looks welcoming!
8. Make those minor repairs such as dripping faucets,big crack in sidewalk that buyer can trip on, wood trim at doorway that your puppy chewed on.Keep in mind that buyers do home inspections so that the less shows up on the report the better chance of a happy buyer and a happy seller as well!
9. Buyers do notice odors therefore it is always good to air out the house and make sure that kitchen garbage cans are emptied daily and kitty's litter box changed when needed.
10. Go outside to the front yard, close your eyes and think like a buyer when you go to view your house for the first time. Do you think your house is ready? If so, you can let the Realtor know that your home is available for showings.
And it is our time as your Realtors to get your home sold with our aggressive marketing plan and hard work. Our mutual goal is to get you the most money for your home in the shortest amount of time and with the least amount of inconvenience to you.
