Price Isn’t Everything...
It doesn’t matter whether you’re going to the Golden Arches or The Capital Grille, you want the restaurant to be neat, clean, and inviting.
The same could be said of buyers when they’re looking for a home to buy.
There are some sellers who think that just because a home has a lower price-point it doesn’t have to be as “perfect” as a home with a higher price point.
But like diners going into the golden arches, buyers still want the property they’re viewing to be clean and in good condition.
You don’t have to redo your kitchen or bath area and put in all new flooring.
If your budget won’t allow for all new light fixtures in your home, make sure the ones you have work.
If you don’t have a landscaping service, you can still make sure that weeds are pulled and dead plants and flowers are tossed.
Rent or borrow a pressure cleaner and go after your sidewalks and driveway.
Replace brown patches in your lawn with sod.
Don’t have a budget for new appliances? Clean and shine the ones you have. Remove magnets, etc on the front of your fridge.
If you have room in your budget, the one item that really can help your property show well, regardless of pricepoint, is fresh paint. However, before you pick up that paintbrush, ask you agent or stager for color suggestions.
Make sure that whatever you have is spotless, inside, on top of, under and everywhere else.
Whether your home lists at $80,000 or $800,000, it deserves to look its best to your buyers!
