Tips on showing your home

Ever get that feeling that someone is watching you? You just want to browse the store without having the sale person looking over your shoulder.  The same logic applies when someone is looking at your home that is for sale.  Leave!!  While you might feel that the tile that you had import from the little village in Italy that your father grew up is the most amazing thing ever…..potential buyers may not. Buyers want the freedom to explore your home and to speak openly about likes and dislikes.  Take your pets too! I personally love animals but if Fido is acting like he wants to tear my face off then I am going to leave with a negative impression of your precious little Fido’s home. Which happens to be the house you are trying to sell!

What’s that smell…do you ever get a smell stuck in your nose?  Kind of over powers everything right?  Avoid strong odors before showing your home.  Not everyone is going to be excited about what you are cooking for dinner that night so keep it sweet.  Baking cookies or some sort of sweet treat and leaving them out for potential buyers is a great way to make it feel homey.

Lastly, you hired a real estate professional for a reason….so listen to them! Telling you to repaint your bright green kitchen is not a personal insult but it is to improve your chances of selling your home. We love you and are in this with you!
