Making a Good First Impression

If you want buyers to be interested in your home, you need to show it in its best light. A good first impression can influence a buyer both emotionally and visually, thus prompting them to make an offer. In addition, what the buyer first sees is what they think of when they consider the asking price.

A bad first impression can dissuade a potential buyer. Don’t show your property until it’s all fixed up. You do not want to give buyers the chance to use the negative first impression they have as means of negotiation.

Ask around for the opinions others have of your home. Real estate agents who see houses everyday can give solid advice on what needs to be done. Consider what architects or landscape designers have to say. What you need are objective opinions, and it’s sometimes hard to separate the personal and emotional ties you have for the home from the property itself.

Typically, there are some general fix ups that need to be done both outside and on the inside. As a seller, you should consider the following:

  • Landscaping - Has the front yard been maintained? Are areas of the house visible to the street in good condition?
  • Cleaning or Redoing the driveway - Is your driveway cluttered with toys, tools, trash etc.?
  • Painting - Does both the exterior and the interior look like they have been well taken care of?
  • Carpeting - Does the carpet have stains? Or does the carpet look old and dirty?

Testimonials

To Whom It May Concern, The service and personal attention we received from Sadler Real Estate was exceptional! Their knowledge of the local market and their key contacts in the community helped us in selling our previous home and purchasing our dream log home. After patiently sending us listings and taking us to visit several homes, they made sure we got the best offer for our previous home and more importantly, the best value purchase for the new one! Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Sadler Real Estate to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process. Sincerely, Terry and Betty Maxwell
