Selling Tips

Things to Think About

Take pictures of your house and look at them from a buyer's perspective. Would you buy the house? Thinking from a buyers point of view instead of a seller's will enable you to make the necessary improvements in order to make your home more appealing.

Clean windows inside and out. More light will flood in with this simple step and make the rooms appear larger and homier.

De-clutter your house. A prospective buyer wants to be able to imagine their own belongings in the property, so making your house tidy is essential. Less clutter will also help make rooms appear larger.
