Curb Appeal. The Exterior Is The First View
Grass and plantings should be kept well trimmed. Grass that is not cut and trimmed will often cause a prospective buyer to just keep driving. Landscaping should be trimmed so that prospective buyers know that landscaping has been well maintained. Your phone number will not be on your web page. The calls will come to Homefinders.com and we'll arrange to show your home. To help us help you, your home should be available as much as possible, especially on the weekends.
Pick Up and Put Away - Neatness Counts
If you're home during the day, just keep things put away. If everyone is away for the day, do a final walk through each morning and make sure that the house is neat; If there is clutter around, the prospective buyers will focus on the clutter. You never know when a Homefinders.com partner will call to make an appointment to show your home for sale.
