Hide Yo Kids, Hide Yo Wife, and Hide Yo Stuff!

When selling your house, you must de-clutter and remove anything that distracts the potential buyer. Buyers must be able to picture themselves living in the house. If all they notice is the ‘stuff’ or distracting objects, they are not getting the full experience and it will be difficult to get an offer.

Speaking with a lender prior to looking for homes is the most important step when starting your home search.

Seller Tip: Put the Lid Down

Leave a comment

I am still surprised at how many homes I show and the lid is up. It’s hard to explain the feeling when you are showing a home and this mishap has occurred. It’s very uncomfortable, like leaving the dresser drawer open. It’s an easy thing for a seller to do to make sure their house looks the best, and yet it’s often forgotten.

Oh, If they were all like ‘Million Dollar Listing’

I was stuck at home for couple of days this past week and had the opportunity to catch up on some ‘quality’ television. I watched ‘Million Dollar Listing’ back to back to back and I was amazed at how every offer they got was cash and how the price was the only thing ever negotiated. None of the agents featured ever went over the process after the contract was ratified! If you have questions or comments leave a message below or you can e-mail me. Anna-Marie@ERA-King.com
