Make Yours a "DunnDeal"
PREPARE YOUR HOME TO SELL:
A Good First Impression: Make sure your front door is fresh and clean. Keep you lawn trimmed and free of refuse.
Decorate to Sell Quickly: A fresh coat of paint and new carpet in neutral colors will greatly increase your chances of a quick sale.
Sunshine Welcomes: Open drapes and curtains to show how cheery your home can be.
Fix Those Faucets: Dripping water discolors sinks and suggests plumbing problems.
Repairs Make a Big Difference: Tarnished brass, loose knobs, sticking windows and other minor flaws can detract from the value of your home.
Remove Clutter: Display the full value of your attic or utility space by removing clutter.
Safety First: Keep stairways and other traffic areas clear.
Create Spaciousness: Neat, well ordered closets show that space is ample.
Bathrooms Help Sell Homes: Check and repair caulking. Make this room sparkle.
Keep Bedrooms Simple: Remove excess furniture. Use attractive bedspreads and curtains.
Create Ambiance: Show the warmth of your home by turning on all lights for an evening inspection.
Three’s a Crowd: Avoid crowds during inspections. Crowds make prospects feel like intruders.
Pets: Keep them out of the way, preferably out of the house.
Silence is Golden: Never apologize for the appearance of your home. Let your Realtor answer any objections.
Stay in the Background: The Realtor knows the buyer’s requirements and can emphasize the features of your home.
A Word to the Wise: Let the Realtor discuss price and other factors. He specializes in bringing negotiations to a favorable conclusion.
Use Your Agent: Show your home only by appointment through your agent.
