In today’s world of tech-savvy buyers, a recent trade survey revealed that the first step buyers take when looking for a home is to go online.

STUNNING CURB APPEAL
The old saying – “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” – is absolutely critical when it comes to buyer’s initial impression as they drive past your home or pull into the driveway. When preparing to put your home on the market – take a ride around the neighborhood – pull up in front of your home, sit back and really take a hard look through the eyes of a buyer. Well, cared for landscaping, inviting walkways, and welcoming front porches set the tone for those important first impressions.
SPIC & SPAN SPACES
When potential buyers take a tour, the goal is to remove distractions from their decision process and to help them to envision your home more easily as being their own. So, before placing your home on the market have a thorough deep clean done for interior and exterior spaces too. Take some time to go through and discard or donate unused or unwanted belongings. Clear away and minimize kitchen and bath countertop accessories. And now is a great time to get a jump start on your move by packing up excess books, decorative items. It will be one less thing to do after the sale.
