We prefer to show your home ďBy Appointment Only.Ē We appreciate your cooperation and to assist us in preparing your home for showings, we suggest the following:
Create a mood
Freshen the kitchen by grinding bits of lemon in the garbage disposal. Light scented candles in the bathrooms. Keep fresh flowers in the house. Set the tables. Light the fireplace.
Donít volunteer information
Donít discuss the personal belongings that will be included in the sale. Donít engage in discussion with regard to price, terms or other factors with the buyer.
Let the sun shine in
Make sure the draperies and window coverings are opened. Turn the lights on. Let potential buyers see how cheerful and light your home can be.
Not too hot....not too cold
You donít want buyers to hurry out. Open the windows whenever possible for a fresh and airy feeling
Silence is golden
Be courteous but donít try to engage buyers in distracting conversation. Turn off the television set and turn on soft music.
Take your children and pets with you
Be sure all your childrenís rooms and pet areas are clean
Three is a crowd
Try to take a walk, do some shopping or at least sit in the garden. You want the buyer to feel comfortable in discussing the house with their agent.
Tidy up each room
Keeps rugs and carpets vacuumed, floors sparkling and beds made
Wet the driveway and patios.
Make them look clean, shiny and inviting.
