Thinking about selling your home? We recognize that a home is one of the largest investments most people will ever have. That’s why we strongly urge you to take advantage of the professional services provided by Debbie and Lauren McCauley.

“We take real estate seriously. For starters we have several suggestions to help you maximize the return on your investment.”

Getting your home ready to show

Cleaning up – Most homes are kept clean and tidy, but when it comes time to sell, extra steps should be taken. Cleaning may be more often and focused on the exterior or some other area that normally is not a priority. Windows should sparkle and the fireplaces should be cleaned.

Interior – Some homeowners tend to accumulate bric-a-brac and many small possessions which can detract from the interior. Potential buyers are trying to look at the walls, floors and ceilings, and too many furnishings will make the space look cluttered, smaller and less desirable. The carpets, floors, walls should be clean. You may want to consider putting down runners between showings to maintain the spotless image. Make sure everything else is in “show” condition.

Exterior – Curb appeal means a good first impression — so how would your house fare? Buyers may form an opinion about the property before they get to see your new bedroom closet mirror doors. Are the lawns mowed, is the roof clean, are there any unnecessary items in the side yard?

Improvements – Is there one thing that is an obvious problem? It may be in your best interest to make repairs or improvements. Generally kitchens and bathrooms get special attention, but there may be one feature of the house that stands out, and spoils an otherwise good impression of the property.
