Find a Great Realtor

A great Realtor is someone that is knowledgeable about your specific market and area. It should be someone you feel comfortable working with and trust to sell your house for top dollar. Find an agent here.

Review and Consider Your Curb Appeal

Yes, buyers do and will most likely judge your home even from the outside so we suggest making sure a potential buyer’s first impression of your home is a good one and inspires them to want to buy!

Depersonalize Your Home and Space

Remove anything that may distract potential buyers such as family photos and personal items. Allow the potential buyer to imagine their family living in your home. 

Clean Up Living Areas

Let’s make those living areas shine and declutter. Do a clean sweep of all areas such as the tables, windowsills and remove any visible clutter that may turn off potential buyers.

Touch Up

Look around the house for any scuff marks. There’s no need to do a full repainting job but if there are little marks here and there, it will be worth it to fix up.

Maximize the Light in Your Home

Light it up! Good lighting is just one of the things that most buyers want in a home. Take down those drapes, clean those windows, update your lightbulbs and let the sunshine in!

First Impressions Count!

That’s right! We cannot stress this enough with making sure the first impression is a good one. That means your curb appeal. How is the front yard looking? The entry way? Is it cluttered or is it inviting? Make your home exterior welcoming!

Yes, the Kitchen is Important!

The kitchen is one of the top rooms that buyers assess before concluding the possibility of buying that house or not. If you can win them over from just the kitchen alone, you’re in the home stretch! The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are absolutely endless. Some kitchen remodeling projects don’t even have to be super expensive. Just choosing a modern neutral paint can do wonders to a kitchen!
