Let your Home "Smile a Welcome" to Potential Buyers
First Impressions are lasting - The front door greets the prospective purchaser.  Make sure it is fresh, clean, and scrubbed looking.  Keep lawn trimmed and edged, and the yard free of refuse.

Decorate for a Quick Sale - Faded walls and worn woodwork reduces appeal.  Why try to sell the prospect how your home could look, when you can show him by redecorating?  A quicker sale at a higher price will result.  An investment in a new kitchen will pay dividends, and you can't find a better investment when you are selling a house than a few cases of paint to brighten up the interior.

Let the Sun Shine In - Open draperies and curtains and let the prospect see how cheerful your home can be.

Repairs Can Make a Big Difference - Loose knobs, squeaking doors, sticking windows, warped cabinet drawers, and other minor flaws detract from home value; have them fixed.  Many buyers believe there will be ten problems they haven't noticed for every one they do see.

Inexpensive updates -  older switches, outlets, blinds, door hardware, and bathroom faucets can conspire to make a house look out of date yet can be updated at a low cost.

From Top To Bottom - 
Display the full value of your attic and other utility space by removing all necessary articles.

Safety First - Keep stairways clear.  Avoid cluttered appearances and possible injuries.

Make Closets Look Bigger - Neat, well-ordered closets show that space is ample.

Bathrooms Help Sell Homes - Check and repair caulking in bathtubs and showers.  Make this room sparkle!

Arrange Bedrooms Neatly - Remove excess furniture.  Use attractive bedspreads and freshly laundered curtains.

Harmonize the Elements - Keep FM radio or stereo on softly, TV off, all lights on day or night, drapes open in the daytime, closed at night.  If it's hot, cool it; if it's cold, light a crackling fire

Pride of Ownership sells houses faster and for More Money -  Put sparkle in your bathrooms and kitchen, and you'll take lots more silver out.
