Thinking of Selling?
Once you decide to sell your home, it is important to remember it is no longer your home. It is a product/possession to be marketed, with many features and assets that need to be shown in their best possible light.
Consider the exterior of your home first. The first impression buyers will get is from the street, which includes exterior condition of the structure, walkways and landscape. Once inside, focus will be on room size and natural light. Remove any distractions and donate or sell items you don't want to keep before putting your house on the market.

Organize the personal items you keep so as to help enlarge the feel of interior spaces. If things need tidying inside your closets or cabinets, take charge! Try to give the overall impression that there is plenty of storage. Pack up and store any fixtures, appliances and window treatments that you plan to exclude from the sale of your home. Replace heirlooms with suitable fixtures so as to avoid problems later. Inspect the rooms for defects that can easily be fixed. If the faucet drips, have it fixed. If the window screens are torn, replace them and have the windows washed prior to listing the property for sale. If the paint is peeling, a fresh coat of paint will help to also lighten and brighten the space.
Once you've organized and de-cluttered, repaired and freshened, make sure the house is as tidy as possible at all times. Keep it smelling fresh and clean. Remove any musty or stale odors in the house. With attention to detail beforehand, a great impression can be achieved and you should feel confident you will have a strong edge over your competitors.
