Let's talk about getting your home ready to sell and the best place to start is the same place a "would-be home buyer" would start, at the curb.
Start across the street of your home and do two things. First, take a look at the home as if you are looking at it for the first time. What jumps out at you? What needs attention? Can you see the front door.
Second, take a photo and then look at the photo to see what jumps out at you. Is the hose out of the bib, are the garbage cans stealing the show?
The above exercise will be of tremendous help you to you. From there, we want to look at what needs light, paint and cleaning. If you use the garage to enter your home, you may not even realize what the entry door is like anymore.
Change out your porch light with the brightest bulb you can buy. Power wash the sidewalks and driveway. Mow or tear out the overgrown shrubbery and if you are like most homeowners you will want to negotiate this with me. So I will tell you what I tell my clients, plants are like children, they are adorable when they are small but then they grow up and can get out of control.
Fresh paint on the door or walkways if needed and new hardware will make the place shine.
This is the first impression a buyer will have. When I'm fumbling with the key, they will be looking all around and often making a decision right there on the front porch.
