De-Clutter

Spend some time sorting your belongings, after all you will have to do it when you move, be ahead of the game. Toss – Recycle – Store – Keep Be sure to remove your valuable possessions so they are not compromised by an unfortunate accident or theft. It will be a quicker move and such a relief. Present your home like a designer would after all they are your competition!      

Accessories

Accessories can provide a nice way to rejuvenate your home for an inexpensive price. A little trip to your favorite home décor store will be a breath of fresh air during this busy time and the best part is the fact that you get to keep all your new accessories for your future home and start new. Fashionable designs always interest the young and trendy buyers, be pro active and capture all buyers interest.

Maintenance

Why take a chance? Be ready! A clean and well maintained home is always ahead when it is time to sell. Be pro active and inviting. Buyers will lower their offer on a property they feel need extra attention. A little work can limit the value of a price reduction. Scrub everywhere especially the kitchen and bathrooms, hygiene is a must. Paint the baseboards or touch up the walls, refresh the caulking, at the end of the day anything less appealing will be noticed and everything defective will be found by the home inspector.  

Curb Appeal

  Spring is in the air, ensure to showcase your home with flowers in bloom in planters or beautiful seasonal flowers in the garden. Empty pots will not provide a memorable first impression! Potential buyers might drive by to pre-select the properties they would like to visit. Be part of the favorite homes and impress!
