Home Interior -
Housekeeping is so important these days. Buyers today are HGTV savvy, so everything including floors, bathroom fixtures, kitchen counters, and appliances are sparkling. Do avoid preparing meals that create lingering heavy odors, as heavy odors contradict positive images. Favor touching-up paint, and wipe any smears marks off wall surfaces. Repair leaky faucets and toilets. Deep clean carpets, and if carpets are soiled or worn consider replacing. Please take the time to be sure that lighting fixtures and windows are clean. During an open house, this will make the house feel bright and cheery. Do your best to have the home’s closet not appear packed full. This goes likewise for any room full of furniture. Light and bright overcrowded and tight creates positive images for potential buyers. The last area is the home’s garage. Clean oil stains off the floor, replace non working or flicking fluorescent bulbs, and maximize its spacious feel. The total picture of the home will seem phenomenal, and leave a positive impression.
Home Exterior -
Grass and shrubs keep well maintained. Deep green over brown paints an image of home interior being just as inviting. Do service any fence or gate as well to further a positive impression. Do walk the yard daily to check for any dog debris, and do change cat litter boxes daily. A potential buyer’s impression of the home is what the exterior is displaying. Keep lawn furniture clean and invitingly arranged creates an inviting image for potential buyers. Last is the home’s front door and the home’s exterior color condition. Excessive weathering and wear happens. An inviting image of fresh creates positive buy me images for potential buyers. Remember, the next house that a potential buyer goes see may show uncared for; hence, giving your home the upper value advantage of quality that potential buyers want in a home like yours.
