Make yourself at home…
Could a buyer picture themselves watching a movie in your living area, unwinding in your master bedroom or getting work done in your home office? I want your home to welcome buyers and offer them a sense of easy living. I’ll help you do this by suggesting small improvements that highlight your house’s features. I’ll help you take away anything that gives the look of clutter. Surface areas like tables, desks and counters should be free and clear. Kitschy sculptures, souvenirs, family photos, and play time artwork should get moved out of sight. You need to “neutralize” the home so buyers can perceive it as their new home.
I’ll look over every room of your home. Changes that directly impact your sale price include fixable like pieces of furniture that should get removed, rooms that need new paint, carpet that needs to be steamed, fixtures that need replacing, and windows that need cleaning.
Buyers’ agents know that their clients expect a property that seems comfortable. Items that could be unsightly should be put away in order for your property to have general appeal at every showing.
