Quick Tips For a Faster Sale
By Erika M. Kay, Broker/Owner,  Independent Broker Consultants

Selling your home, it’s the little things that count. Here’s a hot list of “TOOLS” that make Your Home More Saleable, at a Faster Pace and Higher Price.

Capitalize on First Impressions

·  Sweep the street in front and clear all steps and walkways of debris, including pet droppings.

·  Make sure the siding on your house is clean. Wash all the windows until they sparkle.

·  Consider a fresh coat of paint. At least paint the trim, front door and shutters.

·  Check all lighting to make sure they work. Install new bulbs, if needed.

Pump up Curb Appeal

·  Water and mow the lawn. Rake the leaves.

·  Trim trees. Plant colorful flowers.

·  Stow bicycles, toys, gardening equipment and other items typically left outside or in the yard.

·  Garage the car or park on the street to leave ample parking for prospective buyers.

Set the Stage

·  ORGANIZE. Remove  clutter, items such as small appliances, gadgets, toys and memorabilia.

·  Hide or temporarily disconnect tangles of obtrusive extension cords, computer network wiring,    cables and like wiring or cabling.

·  Organize cabinets to demonstrate ample storage space.

·  Recycle or store away newspapers, magazines and other publications.

·  Board pets, send them to the neighbors or keep them out of sight. Remove pet odors, put away the litter box, store pet toys.

·  Bake cookies, burn scented candles or fire up the fireplace to make the house smell pleasant and feel cozy.

·  Stash valuables, including medications, in a safe, secure place.

Offer informative Disclosures, via Fact Sheets, Brochures

·  Have any inspections done on hand.

·  Provide a list of all home improvements, new appliances, fixtures, etc.

·  Prepare take-away brochures and flyers about the property, the neighborhood, area schools and local services, attractions and destinations.

Be a Good Neighbor

·  Make sure your agent has communicated with the neighbors to inform them of any open house dates. Make sure they have “good things” to say about you and your home if at all possible.

·  Invite and include the neighbors for a private showing  prior to the public open house.

I will see you in escrow,
