LET YOUR HOME "SMILE A WELCOME"
TO POTENTIAL BUYERS
First Impressions Are Lasting
The front door greets the prospective buyer. Make sure it is fresh, clean, and scrubbed looking. Keep lawn trimmed and edged, and the yard free of refuse.
Decorate For A Quick Sale
Faded walls and worn woodwork reduce appeal. Instead of telling prospects how your home could look, show them by redecorating. The result will be a quicker sale at a higher price. The best investment when selling a home can be a few cans of paint and a little putty to brighten your home’s interior.
Let the Sun Shine In
Open draperies and curtains and let the prospect see how cheerful your home can be. (Dorm rooms do not appeal).
Fix that Faucet!
Dripping water discolors sinks and suggests faulty plumbing.
Repairs Can Make A Big Difference
Loose knobs, sticking and squeaking doors and windows, warped cabinet drawers and other minor flaws detract from home value. Have them fixed. Many buyers believe there will be ten problems they haven’t noticed for everyone they do see.
From Top To Bottom
Display the full value of your attic and other utility spaces by removing all unnecessary articles.
Keep stairways clear. Avoid cluttered appearances and possible injuries
Make Closets Look Bigger
Neat, well-ordered closets show that space is ample
Bathrooms Help Sell Homes
Check and repair caulking in bathtubs and showers. Make this room sparkle.
Arrange Bedrooms Neatly
Remove excess furniture. Use attractive bedspreads and freshly laundered curtains.
Harmonize The Elements
Soft music, TV off. All lights on, day or night. Drapes open in the day-time, closed at night. If it’s hot, cool it; if it’s cold, light a fire.
You Can Sell Pride of Ownership
It’s called cleanliness, and cleanliness has more buyers than used dirt. Put a sparkle in your bathrooms and kitchen, and you’ll take out lots more silver.
