Home Selling Tips
Little things mean a lot when you’re trying to sell your house

The way you present your property to prospective buyers can make all the difference between success and failure.

Intangibles often help a sale - a clean fresh smell or the straight vacuum lines can make
buyers feel comfortable about the way the home has been cared for.
If prospective buyers don’t find your house appealing, they won’t
be interested in seeing what’s inside.
Everyone knows, of course, that neatness counts, both inside and out.
Buyers react most strongly to kitchens and bathrooms, so it will pay to concentrate alot of effort in these areas.

Make sure to turn all the lights and open the curtains or blinds when the house is to be
shown, this will make the home feel spacious.
