20 Tips To Help You Sell During The Fall Months

When listing your home for sale, your number 1 objective should be to get your home sold for the highest possible price and best terms. Before listing, you may want to ask if there are small projects you can do to ensure you reach your goal. As a local professional real estate agent, I can make simple suggestions you can implement to get your home ready for the market.

Here are a Few Tips

  • Your entry needs a new look!  A fresh coat of paint or a new front door will do wonders.
  • Landscaping needs help! A well groomed lawn and hedges shows buyers the home has been well taken care of.
  • Change bulbs both Interior & exterior lights - If they are not in working order. Light it up!
  • Clean windows - Wash both interior and interior. First and last impressions are lasting.
  • Straighten the garage and Clear out the clutter. 
  • Consider planting colorful flowers to make your house stand out.
