People usually decide within a few minutes whether they like your house. Prospects start forming their opinion before they even walk in your front door. So, Mr. Seller, ask yourself if your house is as presentable as it can be for a faster sale at the best price.

You’ve probably been looking at other homes (especially if yours is already for sale), so approach your present home the way you look a t other houses.

Get in your car and drive up to your home the way a prospective buyer would. Give the outside a once-over. Check the lawn, the shrubs, the paint. Would some flowers by the front door be more inviting? Step inside. Is the living room cluttered? Are the rooms dark or well lit? does the condition of the kitchen turn you off? Just remember your own reactions when you inspect other homes. If you want to be a seller – think like a buyer!
