Getting the Highest Price for Your Home:
Curb appeal is key and could make a difference whether people stop and take a flyer, or drive right by. Your home needs to pass the "spin" test! The next time one of your trusted friends stops by for a visit, walk across the street with your back to your house. Then count to 3 and spin around.....make a note of your immediate impression of your home (both negative and positive). FIRST IMPRESSIONS play a huge part in the decision on whether a buyer will write an offer on your home. Buyers tend to "name" the homes that they see to help them differentiate all the homes that they see. You don't want your home to be the one that they name "The one with the overgrown front yard." Here are a few tips to increase the curb appeal of your home.
Staging your home is important. Many buyers will stay in your home longer if it's staged appropriately. Make sure that you have each room staged in the manner it is designed to be used. Take the kids playroom set up out of the dining room (even if you never use it as a dining room). Spend a little money and put an inexpensive dining room table in place. If you have excercise equipment or office furniture in your master bedroom you should consider removing it until the home sells. Seeing this may create the idea in the buyer head that the home does not have enough room to put this anywhere else. We have compiled some ideas to present your home in the most effective manner.
