Let the sunshine in!
What a gorgeous day it was in Central Maryland. Temps in the low 50s and a picture-perfect cloudless blue sky ... the kind of weather that makes everything look so much nicer and friendlier. When selling your Maryland home you've got to take advantage of it! Let the sunshine in!
The two homes I previewed for a relocation client today did not do that. The blinds were down and shut, the drapes drawn and I had to turn on all the lights. There I was with a skip in my step and a smile on my face (gorgeous weather will do that to you) which quickly turned into a frown upon entering (gloomy homes will do that to you).
A dark house does not exactly scream "Welcome Home", it does not make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. What it will do, however, is make you wonder immediately: What is wrong with it?? Are the windows drafty? The view ugly? The yard trashed? These are not the kind of questions you want a potential buyer to ponder!
So, when selling your home in Central Maryland - pull up the blinds, open the curtains and let the sunshine in! Bright and airy keeps the smile on people's faces. It makes buyers feel welcome and it makes them linger, take in the details and admire the features - prerequisites to actually selling your home!
