It’s that time of year again. Halloween gives us a chance to be silly and show our personalities in as bizarre a fashion as we choose. It’s all in good fun. Looking good is important and making that good first impression is critical, whether you’re trying to be the Bride of Frankenstein or off to a job interview. As the old adage goes, “There’s never a second chance to make a good first impression.” It’s just as true when selling a home.
We are quickly approaching what is normally one of our busiest selling seasons. If your home is on the market, it might be a good idea to walk across the street, turn around, and see if your house is “dressed” to impress.
- Curb appeal is crucial. A well-groomed exterior, including fresh paint and a neat, trimmed yard set the stage mess, a buyer will look more critically at all aspects of the interior Spaces.
- Make sure the inside of your home sparkles. Clear the counters, Repair cracked drywall, repair loose tiles. A messy or cluttered interior weighs the house down. Spaces look and feel much smaller.
- Get rid of junk, even if you need to rent a storage unit. The feeling of space, light, and cleanliness are the very reasons we love looking at house magazines. They are major attractions to buyers as well.
- It’s hard work but a clean house not only sells faster, it tends to bring top dollar. After all, isn’t that your goal? As a seller’s agent, I know it’s always mine!
Here’s wishing you only treats and no tricks this Halloween!
