Closing Friday

Customer Satisfaction 
Today we will be closing a couple of referrals. Referrals are my life blood. How often do you get told when first meeting someone "I feel like I know You". Partly from my online presents is my first though. Then the client tells me from a past client who had a great experience and feel that I would treat and give them the same feeling when they close the transaction. I know today is not going to be any different. 
Both referrals were very easy to … (10 comments)

Curb Appeal De-Clutter the Front Yard 
Many people think the term De-Clutter just refers to the interior of a house. It can and does include the front yard. Hence the term Curb Appeal.
First impressions are lasting ones. Curb appeal is to me the most important impression when a buyer enters a home. If the front yard of the property is well maintain the buyer enters the property on a positive note.
If you love plants and a garden that's great. Have the plants well water and groom. Whether your selling or not visitors … (11 comments)

Lighting A Property To Sell
Owners will often leave a house before a showing. This is great! Often the Seller will turn off lights and fans. In addition they will close all curtains. My advise to my Sellers to stop. Instead, have the Seller leave all lights on. Open all curtains as well.
When all the lights are off the buyers may find the house unattractive or unappealing. With the light's on the home will feel bigger, brighter and more spacious. Think about this, a well lit home is more attractive.

Clean Floors and Carpet 
One item that often need addressing in order to sell your property fast are the floors. Ensure the floors are in good condition and clean. Dirty and non functioning floors will turn off a home buyer. Dirty floors and carpet could make the whole home seem dirty. 
There less expensive ways instead of replacing floors or carpet. Consider buffing wood floors. As far as carpets, consider steam cleaning and use of stain remover to bring the carpet to its glory days.
