If you want to sell your house, both you and your real estate agent will want to sell your present home for the highest price possible. The market for houses similar to yours will be governing factor when the house is sold. Also important is the first impression your house makes on potential buyers.

Before you put your house on the market, your agent will probably discuss with you the appearance of the exterior and interior of the house.

Does the house need a fresh coat of paint? Are there any loose hinges, shutters, or screens? Does the yard look neat and well-cared for?

The same attention to detail should be given to the interior of the house. It should look clean, neat, and in good repair. If a room needs repainting, it may pay you to have it done or do it yourself. If you’d like some hints and advice on how to make your home more salable, call us for an appointment.
