If you want buyers to be interested in your home, you need to show it in its best light. A good first impression can
influence a buyer into making an offer; it influences a buyer emotionally and visually. In addition, what the buyer first
sees is what they think of when they consider the asking price.
A bad first impression weighs in as deeply. Don't show your property until it's all fixed up. You do not want to give
buyers the chance to use the negative first impression they have as means of negotiation.
Ask around for the opinions others have of your home. Real estate agents who see houses everyday can give solid
advice on what needs to be done. Consider what architects or landscape designers have to say. What you need are
objective opinions, and it's sometimes hard to separate the personal and emotional ties you have for the home from
the property itself.
Typically, there are some general fix ups that need to be done both outside and on the inside. As a seller, you
should consider the following:
*Landscaping - Has the front yard been maintained? Are areas of the house visible to the street in good condition?
*Cleaning or Redoing the driveway - Is your driveway cluttered with toys, tools, trash etc.?
*Painting - Does both the exterior and the interior look like they have been well taken care of?
*Carpeting - Does the carpet have stains? Or does the carpet look old and dirty?
