BEST FOOT FORWARD

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Group Ottawa

When you are ready to put your house on the market you MUST do everything required to make your property attractive to as many home buyers as possible.  You only have one opportunity to make a good first impression.  The first opportunity might be when they see it on MLS; or when they drive by or when they book a showing.

On MLS, the property should be photographed by a professional and the pictures should be clear and bright; showing off the best features of your home; no one is interested in the counch or your big screen t.v.  They want to see the appliances, the fireplace, the flooring, the kitchen cupboards, the bathrooms.

When they drive by they would like to see a nice front garden, an attractive front door, maybe a new mailbox, no garbage on the lawn, no weeds, the driveway freshly sealed.  New light fixtures if the old ones are discoloured or rusted.

When they enter the house, it should smell nice and fresh, the lights should be on, shoes and coats in the closet, kitchen and bathrooms cleaned, beds made.

If the location is right, the house is impressive and its priced at market value - you just might have a sale.
