What Do Buyers Want?
Tips To Get Your Home Sold:

Buyers want to drive up to a property that has a clean curb appeal and that is welcoming to everyone that comes by. Clean up the flower beds, mow and trim the yard, replenish old mulch, plant blooming flowers or bushes, fix any wood rot and chipped paint, clean the gutters, etc.

Buyers want to walk into a clean home that is de-cluttered and smells really good. Go through each room and remove everything that reeks of clutter. Clean out and organize each closet, organize the clothes and the shoes and clean shelves. Get rid of the hot pink and blue blue rooms and then paint with neutral colors. You may need to buy some new bedspreads and pillows to make it more appealing.
Buyers want to be able to imagine themselves living in your home. Getting that “I’m home” feeling, where every room says the same thing - “I’m home, I am your refuge from everyday stress! Refresh the color of each room and hang nice art work or wall hangings that match the decor, take down family pictures and take the big furniture out to make the room look bigger. When an appointment is scheduled - light some candles, put on some soft music, and open the blinds and drapes to make the home light and airy.
Buyers want their monies worth. They normally do not want to move in and immediately have to start fixing up the home. Touch up any paint chips or scratches on the woodwork, refresh the paint in every room. Vacuum and get carpets cleaned. Get the home professionally cleaned if need be. Change the light bulbs that are out and make sure light switches work. Clean out the garage and organize the basement. Buyers love a home that sparkles!
The success of selling your home is up to you! This is what a buyer wants!
