If you want buyers to be interested in your home, you need to show it in its best light. A good first impression can influence a buyer both emotionally and visually, thus prompting them to make an offer. In addition, what the buyer first sees is what they think of when they consider the asking price.
A bad first impression can dissuade a potential buyer. Don’t show your property until it’s all fixed up. You do not want to give buyers the chance to use the negative first impression they have as means of negotiation.
Ask around for the opinions others have of your home. Real estate agents who see houses everyday can give solid advice on what needs to be done. Consider what architects or landscape designers have to say. What you need are objective opinions, and it’s sometimes hard to separate the personal and emotional ties you have for the home from the property itself.
Typically, there are some general fix ups that need to be done both outside and on the inside. As a seller, you should consider the following:
Landscaping - Has the front yard been maintained? Are areas of the house visible to the street in good condition?
Cleaning or Redoing the driveway - Is your driveway cluttered with toys, tools, trash etc.?
Painting - Does both the exterior and the interior look like they have been well taken care of?
Carpeting - Does the carpet have stains? Or does the carpet look old and dirty?
I was impressed with Margaret & Blair from the moment we met. Their office is beautiful and very unique! Their knowledge of the area was terrific. As a native of Atlanta, I was familiar with the Highlands area, but no expert. They listened to me and helped me determine what was most important in my home selection.They directed me to properties that were right for our family rather than trying to sell me something in a specific club or one of their own listings. I felt like they were working in my best interest. I recommend them to anyone exploring the area. bbjclemsonfan
Great experience. They were very helpful from showing properties through the closing. Recommend them highly to anyone interested in property. They understand what you are looking for and do not waste your time showing you things that they know will not work for you. Susan & John Wiener
