I wish my sellers knew that "a picture is worth a thousand words" and how important it is to make the outside of the home as presentable as possible before listing the home. A bit of fresh landscaping goes a long way in making the home look attractive, and if possible, a fresh coat of paint can work wonders! The picture of the home's exterior is what buyers see first to decide if they want to see the home's interior.

The Buyers first impression is huge. Often Sellers do not see the accumulated eye sores or clutter in their home. I would ask a Real Estate Professional to take a quick look and make suggestions that will help you maximize your return on your investment. Most the time it can be simple clean up, o a little paint, or maybe just moving things around a bit.which is such a small investment that should put more money in your pocket.

If you own a single family home a good courb appeal is very important , it is the first impression a buyer will have.Weill maintained homes get more showings . Make sure the prize is reasonable ,if you prize it too high it will just sit on the market. Fix all the little problems before selling and make sure they are no open permits. Any other questions ? Please feel free to call.
