Tips for Ideal Showings
One of the most important things a seller should do, is wake up assuming you will be called for a showing that day. If you ensure your home is “show-ready” every day, then you are already ahead of others. Follow these simple tips to make sure you have a good showing:
• Listen to the feedback
When agents give feedback you can improve on, make those changes. The agents showing your house have firsthand experience as to how. A buyer reacts to you home.
Make sure your home smells good for potential buyers. If you have pets, do not let their scent overpower the home. Have air fresheners or wax warmers going.
• Make the bed
It is not welcoming for a buyer to see a messy bed, make sure before you leave in the morning, your sheets are tidy.
• Fresh Flowers
Fresh flowers are beautiful to look at, smell nice and make the home feel inviting.
A quick sweep, dust and table wipe go a long way. Keeping the house tidy is welcoming for buyers.
Make sure there is not a pile of dishes in your sink, it could give the illusion that you dishwasher does not work, or that there is not a lot of shelf space.
• Natural light
Having the blinds or curtains open, allows natural light to come in and make the space feel larger.
Let buyers picture themselves in the home by de-cluttering and getting rid of unneeded items, so the potential is obvious.
Follow these simple steps for a positive showing and stand out to buyers.
