Tips for Sellers

Selling your home is a complex task and as your professional sales associates, we will carefully guide you each step of the way.  Our office will always call to ask for an appointment before a showing.  Please allow the agent to show the home at the suggested time.  We would like to keep your house key in our office for use when you are away, a lock box can also be attached to your door if you choose.  Your home will be multiple listed, associates from many other companies will wish to show your home.  You should let me know where you may be reached at all times, leave a phone number even if you plan to be out of town.  Leave your utility bills out in a visible spot, replace any items not included in the sale of your home, or tag these items with “Not Included”.  Always place valuables in a safe spot out of sight.

 Some things you can do to enhance the sale of your home:

 *          First impressions are lasting Make sure your front entrance is clean and inviting, keep your lawn trimmed or remove snow from walks in winter.  A small investment in painting, mulch, etc. will make your home look fresh and return more in selling price.

*          Pay attention to detail Minor flaws detract from your home’s value – fix loose knobs, torn screens, dripping faucets, clogged drains.  Pay special attention to odors from pets or cooking.

*          Bright, clean, charming – Make sure your bathrooms sparkle, clean out messy closets box up things neatly in the attic or basement.  Create a warm, friendly atmosphere with fresh flowers, lots of light, a fire in the fireplace in winter, open windows in the summer.

*          Three’s a crowd – Avoid being present during a showing, the prospect will feel like an intruder and hurry through.   Leave and take your pets with you.  If you can’t leave, step outside the house and don’t force conversation.  If the agent has a question he\she will find you.

            Our office will keep a record of all the showings for us to review with you.  We will follow-up on every showing by contacting the agent, discussing the property and reporting back to you with any comments.
