OVERCOMING YOUR LISTING'S MOST DEADLY SELLING OBSTACLES
It's the little things that make the biggest difference. Clean your listing like you're preparing it for surgery.
Clean or replace carpeting as carpet can hold on to smells and can make a listing feel dated and dirty
Clean windows - let the light in
Replace moldy caulking/grout - kitchens and bathrooms should sparkle
SECRET WEAPON - Magic Eraser wall scuffs, grime on cabinets, dirty doors and anything else that doesn't look new
Going to grandma's is great...unless your listing looks like it.
Remove old valences and heavy drapes
Replace old, broken or yellowed light fixtures, cans and switches
Remove damaged, rusty or dated furniture
Pack up collections of figurines, plates of the states, swords of world, pennants or doll collections
Lack of maintenance signals trouble to the buyer. Just fix it before you list it.
Repair cabinets, drawers, doorknobs, and handrails
Repair or replace broken tiles, stained carpet, faded wood, flooring, missing bricks or stones
Remove and repair torn screens
Touch up chipped paint inside and out on walls, moldings, garage doors, stucco and trim
Buyers are afraid o the dark so lighten up your listing.
PAINT. Truly the most cost-efficient change with the biggest impact
Install LED lightbulbs throughout, make sure they are all the same and working
Open all shades and remove extra window covering that block the light
Keep accessories to a minimum
If your listing has been on the market for a while, change it up to refresh your listing and attract new buyers.
