Dress Your House For Success

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty
Many sellers who list with me have lived in their homes for many years. They have raised their families, celebrated holidays and have fond memories that center around their home. Now the children are in college, or working and they have entered the EMPTY NESTER phase of their lives.

They want to sell their large homes and move to smaller homes with fewer responsibilities. Traveling and perhaps even buying second homes have now become considerations. When I visit them to talk about putting their home on the market, I realize that they don’t see their home the same way a buyer would.

So my advice is – if you don’t like the wallpaper you chose 25 years ago, neither will the young couples who want to raise their families. Its time to freshen up and put the house’s best foot forward- paint in the newer color tones, take off that wallpaper, open up the curtains and shades. These are not expensive steps to take and they will bring you better pictures on the internet, more viewers and even a better price.

So if you are planning to sell your home in the next couple of years, paint now, fix that deck now so you can get some enjoyment out of the property.

I feel the same way.  People don't want to part with what they have, but they need to understand that not everyone likes the same things that they do.  Very important when trying to get a house sold.
