Showing Your Home to Sell

The greatest way to show a home is to make it available for agents to show it.  I know this sounds obvious but you’d be amazed at the number of times I try to show a home and cannot get in for one reason or another.  Typically a key is provided in a secure lock box provided by your real estate agent. This will give all agents with prospective buyers easy access to your property and promote showings. Following these simple staging guidelines will also help show your homes best features:

  • Keep all lights on, even on the sunniest of days.
  • Keep all draperies and shutters open.
  • Leave soft music playing at a low level.
  • Take a short walk or drive with your children and pets.
  • Let the realtor and clients view the home without your presence.
  • Burn a scented candle to add a pleasant aroma to your home. (if you’ll be home quickly)
  • Let the buyer be at ease and let the agents do their job.

By employing these successful staging strategies with an aggressive marketing plan, we can achieve a maximum sales price in the shortest number of days. Please contact me if there is anything I can help you get your home ready to sell.
