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

My sister told me about Assist-2-Sell, and that it is less expensive than traditional REALTORS. I expected to sell my house for a good price and with no hassles. I chose Assist-2-Sell after interviewing four other REALTORS. Assist-2-Sell not only had the best price, but I trusted them more than the others. The others all condemned Assist-2-Sell but they were wrong! They were wonderful to work with. They are a great team. So smart and informative and always available to help. The best thing about listing with Assist-2-Sell was the Full Service and Savings!! I never lifted a finger and sold my house in record time. Thanks Assist-2-Sell. Mary Ann Pasch, Seller of 8531 Rhoda Place, Dublin, CA. Saved over $9,900 in Fees.
Assist-2-Sell was very reliable and my expectations were exceeded. They gave good recommendations and were very professional. If I sell or buy another home I will definitely use Assist-2-Sell. Christopher Georgeovich, Seller of 196 High Street, Pacheco. Saved over $4,900 in Fees.
