Sometimes, It's the Little Things that Sells A Home,
but make sure they go with it?
When selling your home, everyone says the home should be clean, updated and inviting, and of course, priced right! We have had the opportunity of showing a multitude of homes to a clients. They may like the floor plan, but not the kitchen, the basement is not finished, or maybe the bedrooms are too small. There are a number of reasons why a client would turn away from a home.
If the home is staged with the help of a professional Stager, the client is able to view the inside of the home, without being distracted by personal items that do not go with the home. I showed one home, where the owner's hobby was Archery and crossbow competition and had many trophies around to distract the buyer. The attention to the home was lost.
The outside of the home is a different story. Most of what you see, goes with the home, however it may have a children's play-set or ornamentals around the yard. In the photo, you see a fire pit, an outside time and temperature ornamental, outside furniture and even a working fountain.
The potential Buyers may like the home, but the outside setting may be just the reason why they would want to make an offer. They could find out, after they leave the closing table and go to move in, much of what attracted them is gone. Make sure that those items are listed in the contract, or negotiated for outside the contract. As professionals, we need to make sure that doesn't happen to our Buyers.
It may be the little things that sell the home,
but make sure those little things are available to the Buyer!
