First Impressions are Priceless:
The first impression that your home Â makes on a buyer is PRICELESS.Â Buyers want to walk into a home and be immediately hit with an emotion or feeling that this is the PERFECT home for them.Â With proper preparation and execution, your home can create this emotion.
Clear out the Clutter!
Â· Clear out all unnecessary items, like extra toys, books, linens, appliances, nick naks, etc.Â
Â· Donate items to charity, hold a garage sale, sell clothing at a consignment store, store items off site by renting a storage space or storage pods.Â
Â· De-personalize and de-clutter by taking down all photos of family and friends, store trophies and awards along with any collectibles.Â
Create an Impression!
All this may seem a little overwhelming when you are doing it on your own. Â Donâ€™t Stress Yet! Â A full-time, full service Â Real Estate Agent should be helping you with this process.Â Â I have helped many of my clients with the â€œ3 Câ€™sâ€ and it produces results every time.Â I personally, just sold my studio in June of this year and took my own advice of clearing out, cleaning up and creating an impression.Â I sold my condo for $25,000 above the recent comparable sold studio in my building and in the first weekend that I had it listed on the market.Â The comparable sold had similar upgrades, but was completely empty and had less than stellar photos.Â I firmly believe Â that this 3 step process was aÂ major contributing factor Â to gettingÂ my unit sold quickly and above market value.Â If you are selling your home, I encourage you to get started on the â€œ3 Câ€™sâ€ today!Rachel Barnette, RA
