SUGGESTIONS FOR SELLERS
Life is constantly reminding us about what home means. Whether your loved ones are coming home, leaving home, or missing home. Home is a place where we eat laugh, play, cry, and build memories with family and friends.

PREPARATION FOR A SUCCESSFUL SALE
Most buyers purchase a home based of an emotional feeling or vision. To obtain a premium price, thoughtful effort needs to be put towards the maintenance of the home to capture interest from multiple buyers. Below you can read somethings you can do that might save you time and money.
1| Cleaning & Organizing
When a prospective buyer walks in they tend to imagine the home as if it were their own. You can help them envision their dream space by presenting a clean, clutter free environment. Clear off counters, especially in the kitchens and bathrooms, storing away small appliances and miscellaneous personal items. Scrub down surfaces and perhaps even a bouquet of flowers or aroma scented candles. Create ease of movement by removing and storing extra furniture to create open areas that promote easy foot traffic. Now might be a good time to box up old unworn clothes, toys, and personal items for storage or charity.
2| Quick Fixes & TLC
Potential buyers will be looking for visual clues that your home is well maintained and cared for. The amount of work a house needs will impact the strength and prices of the offers your receive, so it is in your best interest to ensure everything is in good working order. Ensure plumbing are clean and in good working condition. Outfit leaky faucets with new ones and clean visible stains on fixtures and tiles. Be mindful of odors and consider using environmental friendly fragrances. Replace fused lightbulbs and add lighting fixtures in dark areas. A detailed checklist can be found on my website.
A fresh coat of paint can instantly transform a space visually making it look neat, clean, and maintained. Fix clear wall imperfections like cracks and nail holes before painting. Consider classic or natural color tones and avoid colors that may neglect your home or simply out date it.
4| Curb Appeal
First impressions can be everything. Many people drive by listings and make decisions based on your homes curb appeal. Maintaining a neat and attractive exterior will showcase the pride and care you take of your property. Consider replacing personal items and images with something more psychologically engaging. A vase of flowers, plate of fresh cookies, or strategically placed art could be pleasing to the eye and create positive emotions.
