  • 1) Boost Curb Appeal:

    • a. Power wash walkways and driveways

    • b. Make sure house numbers are clean and clear

    • c. Plant flowers

  • 2) The porch is more the welcome moment than even the front door. So, even if there is only a tiny stoop, make it say “welcome home”.

    • a. Use potted plants in bloom.

    • b. Secure and put out a clean doormat

    • c. If there is room, one or two pieces of neat porch furniture are great.

    • d. Keep your porch lights on in the evenings

    • e. Illuminating the front walk with solar lights is a nice extra touch, especially if you will be showing the house during the evening.

  • 3) Schedule a deep home cleaning. No “No Windows” cleaning this time.

  • 4) Clean (not just close the door) on clutter. If necessary use off-site storage!

  • 5) Keep it homey. Since you’ve cleared the clutter, use things like a vase of cut flowers, a basket of fresh farmer’s market produce on the kitchen counter or a bowl of lemons beside the sink to tell a story of love.

  • 6) Consider the pets – If you have pets, get all rugs steam cleaned. You may not sense your pet but strangers likely can.

Sellers might not realize it, but simple steps such as these can make a home sell faster. If you need any more tips to getting a home sold for more money, call us, we roll out the red carpet!
