First Impressions are Lasting Impressions!!



        When it comes to selling your home it is so important to be ready for the very first showing with a gleaming uncluttered  home.  When the buyer arrives at your home an appealing exterior will entice them in.  Clean walks, driveways, mowed lawns, weeded flower beds,  a clean painted front door provides your first opportunity for a postive approach as the buyer enters your home.  


        Eavestoughs free of debris, exterior siding in good repair, decks, fences  and patios in good condition with well painted surfaces if appropriate adds  dollar value and appeal.


        A welcoming atmosphere should greet the buyer upon entrance to your home: fresh clean air, bright rooms well lit even in the middle of the day and window coverings open to allow maximum light in.  Clean sparkling windows, clean appliances, fixtures and flooring will pay off.    Refreshing neutral tones provide a calming environment to which the buyer can visualize their own furnishings in your home.  Put away personal photos and items which some buyers might deem offensive, in other words streamline it to fit almost any taste.  Closets and cabinets should be neat and tidy, providing a sense of space.  


         Declutter.  If storage  is a problem consider renting a storage unit to pack away all those unnecessary items.  Remove fridge magnets,  straighten memo boards, empty wasebaskets, tidy toys.


         Add a splash of color with fresh flowers,  a few decorative pillows, matching towels in the bathrooms, set the temperture to a comfortable level, a few finishing touches will make your home  memorable.  


         A well lit front exterior will enable the buyer to clearly see the access to your home, and provide that so important FIRST impression!!
