Selling and Staging Tips for Alamogordo real estate:
First impressions matter. Those looking to buy real estate usually look at photos first nearly every single time; Curb appeal is essential. Take your pictures on a sunny day when your home shows the best at the right time of the year. Plant flowers that enhance your home color, drawing the buyer's eye to the splendor, not that garbage can looming in a near by neighbors yard.
When showing your home, make sure you aren't present--this includes pictures or anything that exemplifies you or your family. Allow hopeful buyer to see themselves living in the house and not be distracted by your tastes or clutter. Don't forget to turn on all the lights in the house. Better lighting makes the house more welcoming.
Don't forget the following:
• Mow your lawn
• Clear clutter and debris from the yard
• Trim hedges
• Weed the yard
• Wash windows, railings, doors, etc
• Paint if needed
• Clean out the garage
Finish that honey-do list. Buyers will notice details. Get rid of the messes, fix faucets, get your home sparkling clean. Just a little bit of effort can be the difference between a sale or a pass.
• Clean carpets
• Wash tubs,showers and toilets and have fresh linens and towels
• Oil squeaky hinges on doors
• If you see something that needs to be fixed, do it.
Call in the reserves. As you prepare your Alamogordo real estate, don't rely on your own judgement. It's hard to be objective when you're the owner. We know how to make your home more marketable, but it also doesn't hurt to ask for help from your close friends and neighbors for their honest opinion of your home. And listen to their opinions--they might really help you out.
Check the odor. Nothing will turn a buyer away faster than a funk smell. Get rid of smoke, food, and pet odors. Don't even leave a trace. If potential buyers see a dog or an ashtray, they'll be on the lookout for smells and stains.
Remember the goal. The goal is to sell the house, right? Yes. And someone wants to buy your home? Great. Don't be offended when the buyer asks for certain repairs or negotiate terms. The goal is to sell, not argue over small things. Decide what is really important and be willing to let go of the rest.
