The ghosts and goblins may be knocking at your door but that means the busiest time for real estate is just beyond the pumpkin patch. Will your home ready to sell when January comes around?
Before the busy holiday season gets underway, now is the perfect time to take a walk around your home. Take an honest look. Do you really need the dried flower arrangement your kids made for you in 1995? Has the paint seen better days? Have knick-knacks and kitchenware taken over your countertops?
The old saying, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression,” is never more true than when you decide to put your home on the market. Did you know that a cluttered home makes your home appear smaller? Not only does that leave a negative effect on buyers, it can have a negative impact on OFFERS!
Don’t try to do it all at once, take it step-by-step, and room-by-room. Keep in mind that you wont have to pack, store or move the things you really don’t need to your brand new home. But if you still can’t part with those “seen better day” mementos, I know people who can help you.
In fact, I would love to help you with all your real estate questions; I’m just a phone call away.
