Let The Sun
Arrange shades or drapes to give maximum light. Turn
on every light, even during the day. Replace all burned
out bulbs. Let them show how cheerful your home can
Small Repairs Make A Big Difference
Loose Knobs, sticking and squeaking doors and windows,
warped cabinet drawers, badly cracked plaster and
other minor flaws detract from the home value. Have
them fixed. Many buyers believe there will be ten
problems they haven't noticed for every one they do
For A Quick Sale
Faded walls and worn woodwork reduce appeal. You
cannot find a better investment when you are selling
a house than a few cans of paint.
Make Closets Look Bigger
Neat, well ordered closets show space is ample. Remove
all unnecessary accumulations from closets, garage
and all rooms. Remove excess furniture. Your home
will appear much larger than it actually is.
Is Your Age Showing?
Sometimes minor redecorating is recommended if certain
elements of your home are dated and tired looking.
Dark wood, shag carpet, foil and flock wallpaper,
etc. can be turn-offs even when the rest of your house
is terrific. We can suggest inexpensive and effective
ideas to bring you a better sales price.
of Ownership Sells
Cleanliness attracts buyers. Put a sparkle in your
home and it will pay off. For special showings and
open houses, colorful fresh flowers give a special
touch and show pride you have in your home.
Three's a Crowd
Buyers prefer privacy when being shown through a
house. That includes pets underfoot also. Whenever
possible, never stay in your house with house hunters.
The buyer will feel more relaxed. If it is necessary
for you or your family members to stay, please do
not discuss terms, price, etc. Silence is golden.
Be courteous but do not force conversation. Apologies
should never be made for and adverse conditions in
your home. It only emphasizes the defects. Please
let your realtor handle any objections or answer any
questions. It is part of our job and training.
Please let me know where you can be reached and anytime
you will not be in town or available for showing presentations.
Our office will always call you with as much notice
as we are given. Blue Water is open six days a week
and we have voice mail for after hours.
