How Will Buyers See Your Property?
February 13, 2009
It is important for a property to make the best possible impression on prospective buyers. As they say, “You never get a second chance at a first impression,” and in the world of real estate you usually don’t even get a second chance…period. Either your home knocks their socks off or they’re on to the next property. So put some time and energy into presenting your home properly from the onset.
The following can interfere with a buyer’s appreciation of a property:
– lawn needs mowing and edging
– untrimmed hedges and shrubs
– dead and dying plants
– grease or oil spots on driveway
– worn carpets and drapes
– dirty windows, kitchen, baths
– pet and smoking odors
– peeling paint, smudges or marks on walls
A small investment in time, money and effort to remove these distractions can lead to stronger offers from buyers.
