20 TIPS

To help your home sell more quickly and at a better price!

Let your home welcome Buyers!

With a little effort, you can make your home

ready to sell more quickly and at a better price.

 

1. FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE IMPORTANT!

Remember, when a prospect comes to look at your

house, the first thing he will see is your home’s front

door! Be sure that it is fresh and clean. Be sure your

lawn and landscaping are neat and trimmed. Be sure

your yard is free of refuse and leaves. If it snowed, be

certain that you’ve moved the ice and snow from walk and steps.

 

2. WHAT YOU SHOW IS WHAT YOU GET!

Faded walls and scratched woodwork will reduce the

appeal of your home. Why try to tell a prospect how

your home could look when you can show him by a

reasonable amount of touch-up and redecoration? A

quicker sale at a higher price will result.

 

3. LET THE SUN SHINE IN.

Open those drapes and curtains all the way, so the

prospect can see how bright and cheerful your home is.

And, check all your light fixtures to make sure all the

sockets are filled with the highest wattage bulbs that are safe.

 

4. FIX THAT LEAKY FAUCET.

Dripping water discolors sinks and suggests faulty or worn-out plumbing.

 

5. LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT.

Take a few minutes 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.

 

6. SAFETY FIRST AND ALWAYS!

Keep stairways and hallways clear and clean since this

will avoid potential injuries, as well as making your home seem more spacious.

 

7. FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.

Display your attic, basement, and other utility space

(including crawl spaces, by removing all unnecessary

articles). A coat of paint and bright lights can do

wonders if your basement is dark and dreary.

 

8. KITCHENS ARE CRITICAL.

Make sure the stove and oven are clean. Remove all

non-essentials from the counter tops. “Clean, orderly and

light” are more important here than anywhere else in the house.

 

9. BATHROOMS SELL HOMES.

Make those rooms sparkle! Check and repair any

damaged or discolored caulking in the bathtubs and

showers, and be sure that the towels and area rugs are bright.

 

10. BEDROOMS SHOULDN’T SLEEP!

Keep these rooms bright and cheerful. Remove any

excess furniture, posters on the walls, etc. Be sure the

beds are made, and keep the drapes open.

 

11. BIG CLOSETS!

Make them look bigger by having them neat and well

organized to show that your home has ample closet space.

 

12. SHINE ON!

Your home’s illumination can be a “welcome” sign to

prospective buyers! Turn on all of your outside and

inside lights when showing your home at night and they

will feel a glowing warmth as a result of your lighting.

 

13. TWO’S A COUPLE & THREE’S A CROWD.

Don’t have too many people present during a home

inspection, since the potential buyer will feel like an

intruder and want to hurry through your house.

 

14. MUSIC SOOTHES THE SAVAGE BEAST...

But not the potential buyer. When showing your house,

turn off that blaring radio or television. Let your RE/MAX

agent and buyer talk freely and not be distracted.

 

15. CURB YOUR DOG!

A dog is “man’s best friend,” but not when showing your

home. Keep all pets out of the way and not underfoot.

 

16. SILENCE IS GOLDEN!

Be courteous and friendly, but don’t try to “force”

conversation with a potential buyer. He’s there to inspect your home.

 

17. STAY IN THE BACKGROUND.

Your RE/MAX agent knows the buyer’s needs and

desires and can better emphasize the virtues of your

home when you’re not “tagging along.”

If there are any questions, he will call you.

 

18. DON’T PUT THE CART BEFORE THE HORSE!

Trying to sell the prospective purchaser any of the

furniture or furnishings (which you’re not taking with you)

before he has purchased your home, could lose the sale… so “cool it.”

 

19. A WORD-TO-THE THE-WISE.

Let your RE/MAX agent discuss the selling price, terms,

possession, and other factors with the customer. He’s

been trained and has experience, so let him bring your

negotiations to a satisfactory conclusion!

 

20. GO AHEAD AND USE YOUR AGENT.

We recommend that we show your home to prospective

customers only by appointment through our office. This

will be sincerely appreciated and will help us make the sale more quickly.

 

Your goal is to make them love your

house more than the one down the street!!!

Remember, you are the competition, too.
