Showing Tips

Once your home hits the market, the time comes that buyers are ready to schedule showings. This is your home’s time to shine. You have to consider that the majority of buyers have a day scheduled with their Real Estate Agent where they are looking at multiple homes. You want to make your home one they will remember. Here are a few tips that you can utilize to make your home stand out from the rest.

Let the buyers see the home as theirs.  Send children and pets off to stay with family or friends until the showing is over. The fewer distractions you offer, the more the buyer will be able to focus on your property.

The First impression. Keep in mind the entrance to your home is the first thing potential buyers see. Make sure the entrance in swept clean and free of clutter.

Lighting Increases Mood. Open your drapes and turn on the lights. No one wants to walk into a dark spot. Let buyers see your home bright and cheerful.

Check The Little Things. Take a few minutes to check to be sure that your doors don’t stick or have loose knobs on them. Don’t forget your windows and cabinet drawers. Get all those minor flaws fixed since they detract from your home’s value.

Navigation. Make movement throughout the areas of the house simple. Unlock doors, Keep Closets open and neat, and don’t leave cars in the garage. Allow your guests to see the open area.

Deep Clean. Make sure the WHOLE house is cleaned not just the areas you can see. Clean Cabinets, Closets, and Garage make a big difference.

Entice The Senses. The sense of smell is powerful. Put on a pot of coffee prior to showing your house. This can really put your property over the edge for potential buyers.
