What Are The Buyers Going To Remember About YOUR House?
If you've got your home for sale you WANT your home to be remembered by the buyers, but you want it to be for the RIGHT reasons!
Buyers may only be seeing your home that day, or you might be part of a string of ten for the day. And frankly our experience is at around ten homes it starts getting difficult for buyers to separate home A from B from C, especially if we're doing a typical subdivision safari. Generic decorating and standard builder grade issue cabinets and flooring just tend to run together.
Do you have features that make the buyers go WOW? Really make them remember you out of those ten homes they toured? Now WOW might be because the smells from Pretty Pungent Princess Pussycat and Malodorous Muttley assaulted the buyers' noses as soon as they crossed the threshold. Those showings usually last about 20 seconds....just long enough to close the door again and relock the box.
Along the same WOW moments is the home so filled with knickknacks that the home gets lost. Cat wallpaper, cat statues, cat art, cats, cats....that home got tagged The Cat House. Oh wait, that means something else doesn't it??
On the other hand, the home with new carpet, fresh paint, new stainless steel appliances....that home got a good WOW! That home gets remembered and for all the right reasons.
But maybe an overhaul of your home isn't possible, can you still get a WOW? Sure! It starts with good curb appeal (a few dollars on fresh flowers can go a long way). Having your home properly presented makes a huge difference. Maybe professional staging is in your plan, but at a minimum decluttered and fresh smelling, and.that DOESN'T mean a dozen air fresheners plugged into the wall, too much of a good thing is bad too.
Another good approach, especially during these hot summer days, is to leave a bowl with ice and some bottled waters along with a note for the buyers to enjoy! And I've rarely seen anyone say no to a cookie left for them either! It's simple, it's cheap, and it puts the buyers in a better mindset, and buyers in a happy mood are likely to be less critical of a home.
So which WOW do you want to be? The "OMG, can you BELIEVE that last house??" or "Can we go write an offer on this home NOW??". As the homeowner, you've got a lot of say in which WOW is your home.
P.S. Thinking of selling your home and want to make sure you're in the second WOW category? Just give The Liz Spear Team of RE/MAX Elite a call. We know what makes the buyers say WOW!
