Preparing for Showings

First Impressions
Remember, when a prospect comes to look at your house, the first thing they will see is your home's front door! Make it look fresh and clean. Be sure your lawn and landscaping is well manicured and trim looking. Be sure the yard is free of refuse and leaves. If it has snowed, be certain the ice and snow is removed from walks and steps.

What You Show Is What You Get
Faded walls and worn woodwork will reduce the appeal of your home. Why try to tell a prospect how your home could look when you can show them by a reasonable amount of redecoration? A quicker sale at a higher price will result. Invest in wallpaper in the kitchen or bathroom. It will pay dividends for you.

Let the Sun Shine In
Open those drapes and curtains all the way, so the prospect can see how bright and cheerful your home is.

Fix That Leaky Faucet
Dripping water discolours sinks and suggests to the buyer that the plumbing may be faulty or worn out.

Little Things Mean A Lot
Take a few minutes to check to be sure that your doors don't stick or have loose knobs on them. Don't forget your windows and cabinet drawers. Try and repair any minor flaws since they do detract from your home's value.

Safety First and Always
Be certain stairways are clear and clean since this will avoid injuries around your home, as well as avoid distraction to the potential buyers.

From Top To Bottom
Display your attic, basement, utility space and crawl spaces by removing all unnecessary articles. A coat of paint can do wonders if your basement appears dark and dreary.

Big Closets
Make them look bigger by having them neat and well organized to show that your home has ample closet space.

Bathrooms Sell Homes
Make those rooms absolutely sparkle. Check and repair any damaged or discoloured caulking in the bathtubs and showers, and be sure that the towels and area rugs are bright.

Bedrooms Shouldn't Sleep
Keep those rooms bright and cheerful. Remove any excess furniture and be sure to use attractive and colourful bedspreads, and fresh curtains.

Shine On
Your home's illumination can be a "welcome sign" to that prospective buyer! Turn on all your outside and inside lights when showing your home at night and they'll feel a glowing warmth as a result of your lighting.
