Q: How Can I Make My Home Attractive to Buyers?

Q.  How can I make my home attractive to buyers?


A.  When selling your home, look at your home through a potential buyer’s eyes, and follow these steps to make it show well and receive a good offer:


·    Clean and repair.  Your buyer’s first impression is from the street.  Clean up the yard, the landscaping and check your exterior paint job.  On the inside, shampoo the carpets, scrub the floors and clear off all the counters.  Remove old wallpaper and paint the walls a neutral color. Fix things that need fixing, like squeaky doors, broken tiles etc.


·    De-Clutter.  Get rid of all that “stuff” you’ve accumulated in the garage, the backyard and the basement.  And don’t forget the closets!


·    “Stage” it to look like a model home.  Put away your personal items and remove large pieces of furniture.  Ask your REALTOR® for ways to “dress up” your home (candles, new linens etc.) to maximize your selling potential.
