Tips For Showing Your Home

When selling your home the appearance can be one of the most important things which attracts a buyer.  Many needed improvements and repairs can add to the value of your home.  Here are a few tips to help you maximize your home’s value.

  • Keep your house and garage tidy
  • Repair sticking doors or windows
  • Decorate faded walls and touch-up worn woodwork
  • Replace cracked windows, door windows and torn screens
  • Clean and sanitize carpets and rugs
  • Repair word carpeting and rugs
  • Repair broken switches and light bulbs
  • Wash or paint exterior, if necessary
  • Repair leaky plumbing
  • Abolish objectionable odors
  • Keep pets out of sight and under control
  • Keep television and radio volumes low or off
  • Make sure your lawn and other landscaping is neatly trimmed and mowed
