The first impression of visitors is crucial. Often, everything is decided as soon as they see the main entrance to the property. Make sure everything is clean and in good condition, including the lawn and landscaping. Remove dead leaves and dispose of trash. If it has snowed, clear the stairs and the entrance.
Touching up paint, replacing damaged wallpaper, patching exposed cracks, and repairing broken tiles will make your home look like new.
Daylight optimizes the charm of a property. Raise the blinds and draw the curtains; visitors will be able to see how well-lit and welcoming your property is.
A leaky faucet spoils the appearance of a bath or sink and betrays faulty plumbing, which may turn off some buyers. Fix the problem as soon as possible.
It is the finer details that reflect the overall look of a property. Take the time to check the operation of the doors, drawers and windows.
Any accident is to be avoided: clear stairs and orderly rooms will contribute to the smooth running of visits.
The attic, basement and other storage spaces should not be overlooked. Brighten everything up and feel free to apply a coat of paint if needed.
You benefit from placing order in the cupboards: potential buyers are looking for large and convenient storage spaces.
These parts greatly influence the decision of the buyer. Clean faucets, caulk cracks, wash towels and linens, clear counters. Everything must be sparkling clean!
Well-ventilated, clean and harmonious rooms will put the customer at ease and improve their visitor experience. Remove unnecessary furniture and use attractively colored items.
During evening visits, leave all exterior and interior lights on, and replace bulbs as needed. The property will appear warmer and inviting.
Gatherings with family or friends can make buyers feel like they are inconveniencing you. As a result, they may tend to cut short their visit or overlook important aspects of your property. Make sure there are as few people as possible during visits for the most positive results.
I need to be able to chat calmly with the potential buyer if you want to get the best possible results. Turn down the volume on your devices and turn off the TV.
Animals are man’s best friends. Nevertheless, keep them at a distance: some people fear them or are allergic to them; they risk cutting short their visit in their presence.
