10 Tips to Sell Your Property

1. First Impressions are Important

When a prospective buyer comes to visit your home, the first thing they will see is your front door! Ensure that it is freshly painted and clean. Also, be sure that your lawn and landscaping are trimmed and well manicured, and that your yard is free of debris and leaves. In winter, be certain to remove ice and snow from walkways and steps.

2. What you Show is What you Get

Faded paint on walls and worn woodwork significantly reduce the appeal of your home. Why try to sell a prospect what your home could look like… instead you can show them! By investing a reasonable amount in redecorating, such as wallpaper in the kitchen or bathroom, you will obtain a quicker sale and at a higher price.

3. Be Meticulous

The fine detail is what stands out from the general aspect of a property. Take the time needed to verify the functionality of doors, windows and drawers, and do some repairs, if necessary.

4. From Top to Bottom

Display your attic, basement and other utility space (including crawl spaces) by removing all unnecessary items. A coat of paint can do wonders if your basement is dark and dreary.

5. Big Closets

Make them look bigger by having them neat and well organized to show that your home has ample closet space.

6. Bathrooms Sell Homes

Make these rooms sparkle! Check and repair any damaged or discoloured caulking in the bathtubs and showers, and be sure that the towels and area rugs have been freshly cleaned.

7. Shine On

Your home's lighting can be a "welcome" sign to that prospective buyer! Turn on all of your outside and inside lights when showing your home at night. A buyer will feel a warming glow as a result!

Make the Right Decision

Call your RE/MAX Broker before making any decisions concerning the sale of your home. His or her vast real estate knowledge will make selling your home a pleasant and stress-free experience. Your RE/MAX Broker is at your service, so call our agency to make an appointment!

8. Music Southes the Savage Beast

But not the potential buyer. When showing your home, turn off the radio or television. Let your RE/MAX Broker and buyer talk freely and not be distracted. Be courteous and friendly, but don't try to "force" conversation with a potential buyer. Remember, a buyer is there to inspect and visit your home.

9. Keep Your Pet Safe

A dog is "man's best friend", but not when showing your home. Keep all pets out of the way and not underfoot.

10. Stay in the Backgroundt

Your RE/MAX Broker knows the buyer's needs and desires and can better emphasize the virtues of your home when you're
not "tagging along". If there are any questions, he will call you. Trying to sell the prospective purchaser any
of the furniture or furnishings you're not taking with you, before they've purchased your home, can often lose the sale...
so "settle back" while your RE/MAX Broker shows your home.
