How To Prepare Your Home For Sale…Take a GOOD Look At It (Part2)
Have you ever walked by a mirror and caught a quick look at yourself? Yikes…Do I look like that??!!
Our rooms are just like that. We see them every day as we head out the door. But our minds are focused on the chip in the tile that is on your “To Do” list or the carpet in the bedroom that needs to be cleaned.
However, now that you’ve decided it’s time to sell, you’ll need to take a good look at your house. You need to see what your buyers will see!!!
GRAB A CAMERA
Turn on all of your lights and open the shades!
Next…start taking pictures of your home.
~Begin with the front of your home because this is what the buyer sees as they drive up.
~Take photos of your entry before and after you open the door
~Stand at the door of each room and take a picture
~Stand in every corner and take a picture
~Take pictures of the garage, backyard, and patio area.
Upload your photos to the internet. This is what your buyers and agents will see.
ENLIST A FRIEND OR RELATIVE FOR THEIR OPINION.
This one is a tough one. Ask them to look at your house as if they were a buyer. Ask them to be brutally honest with you.
Bribe them with homemade cookies if you must.
Tell them this is their one chance to tell you how much they’ve never liked your wallpaper.
The camera doesn’t lie! Are you happy with what you see???
