TIPS FOR A GOOD SHOWING

We do everything we can to successfully market and sell your home. Here’s how you can help: guarantee

  • You Never Get a Second Chance to Make a First Impression
    Never underestimate the importance of outward appearances. A well-manicured lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs, a clutter-free porch, a nice front door, raked leaves and shoveled snow all help to welcome buyers.
  • Invest A Few Hours For Future Dividends
    Clean up the living room, the bathroom and the kitchen. Consider some minor touch-up. Buyers would rather see how great your home looks rather than hear how great it could look “with a little work.”
  • Check Faucets And Bulbs
    Dripping water rattles the nerves, discolors sinks and suggests faulty or worn-out plumbing. Burned out bulbs leave prospects in the dark. Don’t let little problems detract from your home.
  • Don’t Shut Out a Sale
    If cabinets or closet doors stick, that will stick in a prospect’s mind. Don’t try to explain away sticky situations when you can easily fix them. A little effort can smooth the way toward a closing.
  • Think Safety
    Homeowners learn to live with an assortment of booby-traps: bikes in the hall, worn extension cords, slippery throw rugs and low hanging lights. Make your residence as safe as possible.
  • Make Room For Space
    Potential buyers are looking for more than just comfortable living space; they are looking for storage space, too. Make sure your attic and basement areas are clean and free of unnecessary clutter.
  • Consider Your Closets
    The better organized a closet, the larger it appears. Now is the time to box up those unwanted clothes and donate them to charity.
  • Make Your Bathroom Sparkle
    Bathrooms sell homes, so let them shine. Check and repair unsightly caulking in the tubs and showers. Scrub away mildew. For added allure, display your best towels and a new shower curtain.
  • Create Dreamy Bedrooms
    Wake up prospects to the cozy comfort of your bedrooms. For a spacious look, get rid of excess furniture. Colorful bedspreads and fresh curtains will enhance any bedroom.
  • Open Up In The Daytime
    Let in the sunshine in! Pull back your curtains and drapes in the day to show how light the home is. Turn on the lights for extra brightness.
  • Lighten Up At Night
    Turn on the excitement by turning on all your lights when showing your home in the evening . . . both inside and outside. Lights add color and warmth and make prospects feel welcome.
  • Avoid Crowd Scenes
    Potential buyers can feel like intruders if there are people around. Rather than giving your house the attention it deserves, they are likely to hurry through it. Showings actually go best if no one is there.
  • Watch Your Pets
    Dogs and cats are great companions, but not when you are showing your home. Pets have a talent for getting underfoot. Do everyone a favor: keep your pets out of the way.
  • Think Volume
    Rock-and-roll will never die, but it might kill a sale. When it is time to show your home, it is time to turn down the stereo or television.
  • Relax
    If you are home when the home is shown, be friendly, but don’t try to force conversation. Prospects want to view your home with a minimum of distraction. It’s actually best if you’re not there.
  • Don’t Apologize
    No matter how humble your abode, never apologize for its shortcomings. If a prospective buyer makes a derogatory comment about your home, don’t respond. They may just be after a price reduction.
  • Don’t Turn Your Home Into A Second Hand Store
    When prospects come to view your home, don’t distract them with offers to sell those furnishings you no longer need. You may lose the biggest sale of all . . .
