Making a Good First Impression

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 both emotionally and visually, thus prompting them to make an offer. In addition, what the buyer first sees is what they think of when they consider the asking price.

A bad first impression can dissuade a potential buyer. 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?

Testimonials

Testimonial As first-time sellers, Kent's knowledge of the Columbia Village market, expertise in negotiations, and professionalism were invaluable. If we were ever to buy or sell again in Columbia Village, Kent would be our very first choice without a doubt. Since we were selling while living in another state, his communication was very helpful and always very diplomatic, honest, and tactful. He was also very responsive to our requests, regardless of how seemingly trivial it might have been. We can't say enough good things about our experience with Kent. If you are looking for a Realtor, choose Kent--you won't be disappointed! Fred and Nancy Seroski
