Preparing Your Home to Sell

Does your home say WORK or WOW!! Preparing your home to list it in the Triangle Area real estate market means giving attention to two primary areas:

visual

First impressions are the key.  When the buyer first drives up, it is important that they see a well-manicured lawn with the exterior of the home shining (windows, gutters, freshly-painted front door, etc.).  When they walk in the foyer, capture your buyers with fresh paint and clean carpets which give the home a fresh appeal adding charm and value.  The kitchen and bathrooms need to SPARKLE!  Declutter and box up as much as you can which aids in the appearance of enlarging your home and helps give the buyers the ability to image their own unique style there.  Turn on the lights, open blinds, and keep the home bright and fresh.  Remove your pets whenever possible...and let the Linda Trevor & Co. marketing bring multiple buyer opportunities to your home!

structural

So in addition to making your home visually appealing to buyers, it is so valuable to ensure your home structurally presents itself well. Home inspectors pay close attention and their approval is necessary to encourage potential buyers to make an offer. Repairs may require a bit of work on your part, but it will be worth it in the end to give home inspectors and potential buyers the best impression. Not only that, but showing you take good care of a house goes a long way with buyers. Each person looks at different features to decide if it's the right choice. So give them plenty of reasons to pick your home!
