#3 Prepare your Property:

It is now the time to get your home in "showing and selling" condition. How your home looks will have an immense impact on how quickly it sells and whether or not you get full market value for it.

For the buyers, first impressions are very important and you only get to make one. Andreas Mueller can assist you in approaching your home from the buyer's standpoint. What has to to be changed to make a good first impression? For the one seller this may mean that all you do is just to clean up. For the other seller, it may mean that you completely repaint the house, inside and out. Give the potential buyers a clear path to enter the home. Keep in mind that over time we become accustomed to our surroundings. What's normal for you may be detrimental to the buyer.

Also, make your home look as spacious as possible. Organize your closets and kitchen cabinets, and if you have things stored in the attic or basement, make sure they are presentable. If you are showing during the day, pull back your curtains and drapes to show how bright and cheery your home is. If you are showing at night, turn on all of the lights to create a warm and welcoming environment for the prospective buyers.

There shouldn't be too many personal things standing around in your home. This will reduce distractions and help the buyers to visualize the home as their own.
