Tips from the Pro – Easy Steps to Sell your Home

Listing Your Home – Part 5   Cleaning This is one of the most important steps to selling your home for top dollar.  Potential Buyers must get the impression that its like a brand-new “model” home.  It also conveys a message that you have taken care of and loved your home.  If the kitchen has sticky counters and lots of dirty appliances on the counter top, people will be scared to look in the drawers and pantry.  If your bathroom has anything less than gleaming glass and mirrors, Buyer’s will be afraid to look past the shower curtain.  Your home

Listing Your Home – Part 4 Uncluttering This is the most important step of all!  Uncluttering doesnt include just your daily personal items but also your decorating style.  For example, you like to cook and have your mixer, toaster oven, blender, spice rack, all readily available cluttering up your kitchen countertops.  Another example would be if your style is Country French and you have bright yellow printed draperies, lots of floral pillows and blue & white Delft pottery adorning every tabletop.  Not only is it distracting but also makes the home feel cramped and claustrophobic.  Your goal is to show

Tips from the Pro – Easy Steps to Sell Your Home

Listing Your Home – Part 2 My approach works on all homes, in any market and any price range.  Once you get the home in tip-top selling condition, you should be able to list it at the top of the market for similar properties that have sold in your neighborhood.
