Selling your home at the peak price

Selling your home at the peak price

Here are three tips for selling your home for the best possible price in the shortest amount of time.

Be ready to sell. Prepare your home physically – and yourself mentally – to make the move. Have your home clean and ready for showings to boost the appeal and perceived value. Buyers want to see that a home is well-maintained and cared for. Make sure you’re emotionally ready to part with your home and embrace your move because the sale could happen at any time.

Be flexible. The timing of the sale and scheduling of the closing may not be at the most convenient times. Try to remain flexible and understand that your normal schedule may have to adjust. Be ready to spring into action and move on short notice.

Contact me early. The third and most important step is to work with a real estate agent you trust.  To determine the best time & price to list your home, consult with your local agent (ME!). A knowledgeable professional will assist you in every possible way. Doing  “pre-listing” work and staging will help you sell for a higher price and hep you beat out any competition. Call, email, or text me for your personalized “pre-listing” appointment that is guaranteed to maximize your return.

MAKE A GREAT FIRST IMPRESSION! Increase your home value at the same time!

great front door

FRONT DOORS AND SELLING YOUR HOME!!

Professional stagers agree that painting your front door the same color as your house and trim will not do justice to the entry of your home. We advise that the front door color is vital to your home’s first impression and overall appeal. The door color must be just right. The wrong color can be to distracting, but the right color can be breathtaking and memorable. A bland color, that matches the trim, is not recommenced.

In a recent survey, 79% of professional stagers felt that a colorful front door contributes to the overall look and feel of the home and can increase the homes’s perceived value. The front door color can help a home stand out in online photos by making it more visually appealing that boring, non-descript doors. A great first impression can set the home apart and draw potential buyers in to see the home’s interior.

In another recent  survey asking professional stagers what front color they would definitely AVOID; 54% said they would avoid purple and 36% said to avoid the same color as the trim. 79% of all stagers felt that a colorful front door increases the value, or interest , in a home on the market today.

The top four door colors recommended are: #1 -Red, #2-Black, #3-Blue, #4 Stained, #5-Yellow, and #6-Grey. Most stagers agree, its best to stay away from trendy colors. When choosing the color of your front door, you should take into consideration your home’s style as well as the paint colors on your home’s body and trim. Flashy colors may be popular, but the wrong choice could significantly change the entire aesthetics of your overall curb appeal.

HARDWARE TIPS FOR SELLING 

If your existing hardware is dated or damaged. Replace it. Choose the correct style of hardware for your house. Traditional, modern, etc. If you are keeping your hardware, remove it completely before painting the door. If your address numbers are near the front door, install new ones that match your new hardware.

 

Door painting tips for selling

  1. Choose your color wisely
  2. Choose your finish: satin, semi-gloss, gloss, etc.
  3. Find a clean and ventilated area
  4. Remove the door and hardware
  5. Tape off the area you don’t want painted
  6. Clean the door, sand the door, and then clean the door again (use a tack cloth to make sure all the dust is removed)
  7. Apply a primer
  8. Paint the door, using smooth and consistent strokes; allow to dry completely and add a second coat if necesary
  9. Replace hardware only after the door is fully dry to the touch

That’s it! A one day project that can really help you increase your sales price and really boost your curb appeal. If you have thought about selling and are wondering what you can do to increase your ultimate sales price, please call, email, or text me. I am a Staging agent and will be happy to go through your home and put together a plan to get you top dollar. Staging makes a HUGE difference on your ultimate sales price.

5 Ways to add “curb appeal” value to your home

for newsletter 1

5 Ways to add “curb appeal” value to your home

  1. Wash up — Power wash the exterior to remove dirt build-up and other debris. Clean off the roof and gutters, and don’t forget the windows. Wash them inside and out to keep natural light flowing freely throughout the home’s interior.
  2. Outside updates — Re-stain the deck or reseal the patio, if needed. Make sure fencing is in good condition.
  3. Prune and trim — Highlight your yard by pruning all trees and other plants. Keep the lawn mowed and weed the garden beds. Add small potted plants to increase color and greenery. Consider hiring a professional if yard work is not your specialty.
  4. Attention to detail — Keep your front door looking fresh with a new coat of paint, or consider replacing the door, if necessary. Make sure house numbers stand out and the doorbell works. Don’t forget the mailbox. It should be upright, secure and aesthetically pleasing.
  5. Pop of color — Add interest with a new doormat or fill window boxes with bright flowers. Choose colors that complement your home’s exterior.

For more information on what to to get ready to sell so you can get the best price possible, please call, email, or text anytime.
