One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure

One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure

Or not. In real estate sales, first impressions are incredibly important and as a broker, I have learned to look at a home through the eyes of a potential buyer. When listing a home for sale or rental, there are a few rules to live (or die by).

Declutter - Your house is your home full of your personal, cherished possessions. Yes, but a buyer is not interested in your collection of ancient Chinese artifacts or your pet rock collection. Let’s put those types of things away.

Artwork & Books - Nothing tells a story about you more than your book titles or your taste in art. Not being critical here, but these items can turn off a buyer by unnecessarily giving them an impression of who you are and if they like you and your home. I have seen buyers turned off by coffee table book titles.

Front entry - The best and first impression starts outside the front door. A welcoming experience is vital to success. A nice entry mat, clean front porch, cobweb free entry. This is not a Halloween experience, you want a buyer to feel invited in, not scared away.

Flowers -  A little bit of color goes a long way. A simple arrangement in the kitchen or dining room is inviting. Have outdoor space? Try some flower pots. Winter time? Shovel the dang deck so someone could go out and get a sense of what summer might be like. 

Big Picture - I want a home that appears to be well cared for and a place where a buyer can see themselves living.

In my vocation, this is treasure!
