Initial Appearance Of The Home

If the appearance of your property is not good, many potential buyers will not even walk through the door. The front of your property is critical. Front gardens should be well maintained all doors and window frames newly painted if necessary. Hanging baskets and window boxes always make the front of a property more presentable. Even though you may have cleaned up the front of the property don’t ignore the back.

In a competitive market, the garden can often be the factor that seals the deal. If you are not a gardener, now is the time to start — at least for the time that you are trying to sell your property. If you don’t have the time or energy to garden, hire someone. It will be money well spent when the house is sold.

Neutralize: Buyers will generally be looking for a blank canvas on which they can impose their own personality. If your personality is stamped all over your property, especially in the form of extreme bright colors, the potential buyers will only see this as more work they have to do. Neutralize your rooms with creams and whites in order to provide that blank canvas.
