First Impressions Are Lasting Impressions

Here are some suggestions to make your home stand out from other homes in your price range:

On the Outside

Within 15 seconds a buyer has developed an opinion of your property
  • Give the street, the drive and the walkways a fresh sweep
  • Make sure your front door, outside trim and fences are freshly painted
  • Fix that doorbell!
  • Don't forget to touch up the mailbox
  • Trim shrubs and keep the lawn cut
  • Make sure the roof is in tip top condition (forgive the pun!)
  • Pressure washing your siding may give you home a whole new look.

On the Inside

  • Smell is one of the most important senses - and one of the most neglected!
  • Invite a neighbor or outside family member over for a sniff test.
    • lingering pet and smoke odors can stop a buyer dead in his tracks
    • inviting scents, on the other hand, can make a sale - try fresh flowers, potpourri, lemon Pledge, or freshly baked cinnamon cookies
  • Soft music can create an attractive ambience
  • Noisy appliances can be a negative distraction
