You are Key to a Successful Sale

Below are a few simple tips to make sure your home shows well - increasing your chances of selling for the price you want and in a timely manner.

Know How Buyers View Your Property
It is important for a property to make the best possible impression on prospective buyers.
The following can interfere with a buyer’s appreciation of a property:


  • Clutter.

  • A lawn in need of mowing.

  • Untrimmed hedges and shrubs.

  • Dead and dying plants.

  • Grease or oil spots on the driveway.

  • Peeling paint.

  • Anything that looks old or worn.


  • Worn carpets and drapes.

  • Dirty windows, kitchen, baths.

  • Clutter.

  • Pet and smoking odors.

  • Peeling paint, smudges or marks on walls.

Always Show Your House at its Best

These tips can help your house make the best impression when previewed by sales professionals or shown to prospective buyers:


  • Remove toys, newspapers, yard tools and other clutter.

  • Tidy up and pick up after pets.

  • Park vehicles in the garage or on the street, leaving the driveway clear.

  • Add color with flowers and potted plants.


  • Make beds, clean up dishes and empty wastebaskets.
