Have your property expired or have been on the market without being sold? As a seller I know that this can get quite frustrating. The media is not helping with all this negative talk about how bad the market is, it just makes it that much more complicated. This is a buyers market and buyers are aware of this, they know that this is the best time to buy which is great for you. Your property can and will sell with the proper guidance and the help of a knowledgeable Realtor.
Here is a few tips to make sure your property is ready to sell.
Curb appeal-make sure your outside is well kept. The lawn is cut, the bushes are trimmed, there is no clutter on porches or steps and keep your window's clean (if your can afford to and the property needs it paint). This is the first area buyers will see and they can be turned off in 15 seconds if the outside of your home is not well kept. It doe's not matter how beautiful the inside is, they may never want to see inside if your front yard is not clean. Remember perspective buyers will ride by during the day evening or night to check on the area, so keep it clean. The same goe's for your back yard, make sure it is clean and free from clutter.
Make sure your living area is clean, no clutter in the corners or no area in the house. If you are serious about selling take down family pictures, buyers want to imagine how they would decorate. Have your carpets cleaned and keep them vacuumed, closet's should be clean, no toys on the floor or anywhere a perspective buyer will consider not clean. If you can afford to have the walls painted a neutral color.
