APPEALING TO THE SENSES TO SELL A HOME - 04/08/11 06:00 PM
If a homeowner really wants to sell his/her home there are some basic features that must be addressed and here is the second on the list: #2 APPEAL TO THE SENSES Homes that promote lots of natural light are more appealing - keep windows clean, consider replacing harsh fluorescent fixtures, use well placed mirrors to intensify light in a room, light paint colors should be used on walls, and open drapes and blinds and turn lights on prior to showings.
