Sellers Were Asking: A Memorable Home
When potential buyers view your home, you want them to leave excited and thinking "I could definitely live here!" Sellers need to make their houses memorable and one of the best ways to do this is to keep it as clean and neat as is humanly possible. Scrub the house from top to bottom and hire a cleaning service to help if you don't have the time to do it yourself. A freshly painted and washed exterior can do wonders if it was previously looking old and tired. Powerwash vinyl siding and mow the lawn. Clear up spider webs, clean windows until they sparkle and make sure all toys and tools are put away. You don't want potential buyers to trip. Make a statement right away with a welcoming entranceway. Each room can adopt its own personality without becoming too dramatic. Make sure the hardwood gleams and add a coat of paint where necessary as it does wonders for little work and expense. The kitchen is especially important. Clear away all clutter, fix leaky faucets and change hardware for an inexpensive facelift. Of course, there's always the old standby - flowers. A tasteful floral arrangement will brighten any room.
