This Is How The Website Looks Like
Always make first impressions count. Without a doubt, a visually appealing house will attract buyers,
who can't help but respond to the look and "feel" of a home. Take time to carefully prepare for
showings. Don't forget the following:
• Cut the grass
• Remove any clutter from the yard
• Trim hedges
• Weed gardens
• Wash steps, windows, railings, doors, etc
• Paint if needed
• Remove unnecessary clutter from garages
In order to do this you'll have to see to it that everything in your house is entirely fixed. There can not
be any known concerns such as plumbing, electrical, natural or structural problems. By organic issues I
indicate parasites and weeds. After the essentials are cared for you need to concentrate your focus on
something called staging. Staging is everything about embellishing the home in such a way that it will
make your potential buyers, specifically their spouses because they ultimately manage men in
relationships, want to buy the home.
Scrub, dust and fix up the works. Buyers will notice details. Get rid of the clutter, repair leaky faucets,
wage war on dust and clean until your home shines. Small things can make a potential buyer walk
away. When you prepare your house for showing, remember to:
• Shampoo carpets
• Clean tubs, toilets and showers and hang fresh towels
• Oil squeaky doors
• Fix things like broken hinges and light switches
Listen to suggestions. As you prepare your home, don't rely solely on your own judgement. It's hard to
be objective when you're the owner. Your realtor will have helpful, professional tips on how to make
your home more marketable.
Take a whiff. Nothing will turn a buyer away faster than an odd smell. Try to eliminate smoking, food
and pet odors. And don't leave any clues. If potential buyers see a dog or an ashtray, they'll be on the
lookout for smells and stains.
Small touches make a difference. It's important that the buyer can imagine themselves in your home. A
few small changes can go a long way towards creating that atmosphere:
• Make sure laundry, toys etc. are put away
• Wipe fingerprints and smudges off of windows
• Use fruit as props in your kitchen
• Arrange fresh flowers on your dining room table
• Light the fireplace if you have one (If the weather is cool)
• Brew some coffee for the potential buyers
• Put freshly baked cookies next to the coffee (the nice smell is an added bonus)
Turn on the lights. Open shades and draperies before a viewing. Open all doors inside home. Turn on
inside and outside lights.
Let potential buyers "see" themselves in your home. Too many personal items can make viewers feel
like they're intruding in someone else's home. Keep things clean and simple. Decorate in neutral colors.
Get out of the house. When buyers view your home, they'll be more comfortable and spend more time
if you're not there. If you must be present, be as unobtrusive as possible. Let your agent do the work.
Stay unemotional during negotiations. Selling your home can be emotionally charged, but don't let that
stand in the way of making a deal. Have a business-like attitude during the process.
Choose a Real Estate Professional you like and trust.
Before you shop:
• Be a smart consumer. Learn the financing basics. Know how to shop for a home loan that's right for
• Get pre-approved. This takes very little time and lets you know the price range that fits your lifestyle.
• Know what you want. The last thing you need is to close a deal and realize you bought a house you
don't want. Ask yourself what you're looking for in a home,
before you shop. Think about size, commute time and necessary repairs.
• Keep your debt load to a minimum. Don't make major purchases or incur any additional debt until
after your purchase. Pay down credit cards and don't apply for new ones. Remember, financial
institutions evaluate your financial situation on your gross monthly income. Your total monthly house
costs should not exceed 28 percent of your gross monthly income.
• Be prepared to view new properties quickly. Sometimes homes sell quickly, so be ready to make fast
decisions. Be accessible to change the terms.
• Have instant access to your agent. Instant communication can mean the difference in purchasing the
property of your choice.
Before you buy:
• Submit a strong competitive offer.
• Include a substantial earnest money deposit. Sometimes offers are accepted based on the amount of
• Try to minimize the number of contingencies. Fewer contingencies mean a stronger offer.
Hire an inspector. A professional building inspector or appraiser will make sure the house of your
choice is in satisfactory condition.
Check zoning regulations and covenants. Good residential neighborhoods will be zoned to keep out
commercial and industrial users. Read any restrictive covenants and make sure they fit your lifestyle.
When buying a home jointly, it is vitally important for a valid contract to be signed between the two
parties to protect the asset for all involved.
Before transfer of the property takes place, buyers and agents should thoroughly check what amounts
are still owing to the municipality.
