The days of pounding a sign in the front lawn and waiting for offers are long gone! Home buyers shop very differently today than even ten years ago. They shop online first then decide which homes to look at based on the photos they see online. First impression determines if they decide to view your home or not. It is imperative that your home will show off its features and assets as opposed to its clutter.
Clutter is a clear indicator that there is not adequate storage in the home. It also detracts from the selling features of the house. You want a buyer to be impressed by the lovely moldings, ample closet space, lovely hardwood floors and architectural details of your home, rather than its distracting clutter. Regardless of the unique features of your home, you need to emphasize the positives and eliminate things that are scary to buyers. Cracks in walls, stains and cracks in ceilings, and stained carpeting are features no one wants to buy. If there is a current cause of a problem (such as a roof leak causing stains in the ceiling) let’s fix it and repair the damage. Damages will come up in an inspection and you need to disclose flaws in your home. They will hurt the same whether you fix them or you have to knock money of the the asking price. By fixing the problem and presenting a problem free house, you can ask more money for it. We can help with all the details of preparing your home for the market, from de-cluttering, moving and removing excess furniture, painting and repairs, to cleaning and staging. The talented members of our team can help you realize a much higher selling price.
Even the worst mess can be transformed into a beautiful space.
