Dress Your House for Success by Martha Webb is a checklist-filled book designed to help sell your house, apartment, or condo for the highest possible price. Everyone knows that a house should be clean before being shown to buyers. But what exactly does “clean” include? For those not sure, her mountains of detailed, room-by-room checklists show sellers how to first unclutter and then clean like one has never cleaned before.
Once a home is thoroughly cleaned, she advises sellers on analyzing which repairs should be considered. The important key to repairs is making sure that additional sales dollars generated by the repair are more than the cost of the repairs themselves. She also guides sellers through this decision-making process by suggesting which repairs pay off best and by providing numerous inexpensive repairs that yield big results.
Everything should be done with an eye toward improving the bottom line profit for a home seller. “A buyer’s first glimpse of a room... forms the first impression of that room or area... you have only a few critical seconds to make a positive impression”.
