The first impression, is your last! Even if you vacuumed, painted the ceiling and baked a fresh batch of cookies for your first showing, the buyer has already judged your home before setting foot through the front door. Curb appeal is critical, and an investment here will yield a 100% return. Add vibrancy to your yard, or at the very least, eliminate the chaos.
De-Clutter, like crazy! It's called 'closet cash', and it's the added value of your home, found by simply reducing closet contents, and organizing everyday areas. Buying a home is an emotional experience, and you want your buyer to forget their own disorganized disaster, and buy into the peace and serenity of your home.
Lights on, somebody's home! Take the opportunity to light every room, before a showing. Draw back drapes to increase the overall impression of your windows. Proper lighting instantly warms a home, and makes for a welcoming experience for your buyer. Dirty windows and burnt out bulbs have no place here!
Showtime! Yes it's challenging to maintain a 'show ready' house, but the value of doing just that, can not be underestimated. The goal is to reduce the days on market and get your house SOLD. A little inconvenience goes a long way, with an excited buyer.
In any market, price is paramount. The goal is to encourage traffic, home visits and offers! You have one chance to lure buyers to your listing, and a market appropriate price is one of the best ways to do it. There is an ever growing list of buyers for Vancouver Island real estate, and you want your property to stand out in the sea of new listings.
