Tips for Sellers

  • Pick a realtor you feel you can work well with.

  • Tidy up – as the saying goes, “you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression”.

  • De-clutter and pack it up – the house will show better!  Packing and neatly stacking boxes in one room will show a readiness to move.  Cluttered rooms show small.

  • Brighten up!  Open blinds, turn on lights/lamps, replace burned out light bulbs, etc.  Homes that appear gloomy or drab due to poor lighting don’t show well at all.

  • If they can smell it, I can’t sell it!  Pet odors or other very bad odors are offensive.  Living in the home, you may not notice the smell, but others will.

  • Clean that yard up!  Remember, this is the first thing people see, and it sets the tone for everything else that takes place from that moment on.

  • Leave your home during showings.  You hired a realtor to help you, let them do their job.  It is awkward for buyers to take a good look with you in the house.

  • Ask your realtor for advise and listen to their opinion.

  • I am always asked “when is a good time to sell my home?”  The answer is easy – “Now!”  As soon as it is ready to show, put it on the market.
