Start Packing,  Seriously.

I'll have your home sold in no time.

Whether you've outgrown your home, are downsizing or just want to relocate. Whatever your reason, you've decided to sell. You've come to the right place.

Dress Your Home For Success.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

After the location and price, the condition of your home is the single, next biggest factor that determines how fast -- and for how much -- your home will sell. It doesn't have to be expensive or time-consuming to make your home memorable. Start outside and work your way in. More than half of all houses are sold before the buyers even get out of their car.

There are six important steps to packaging your house. Remember, think like a buyer!

Repair it.

Leave no room for the buyer to doubt your home. Buyers tend to think repairs may cost them more than they do.

Chipped paint, cracked tiles, squeaky hinges, – Doing small repairs can go a long way. Do what you can.

Neutralize it

Help buyers picture themselves living in your home. Neutral paint and decor helps make that happen. According to the National Association of REALTORS®, staged homes sell 49% faster, and for

7-11% more money.

Clean it again.

 Really. It’s seriously that important.

If you keep up daily, each time your home is shown, it'll be easier for you to prepare it.

Clean it.

This will make your house easy for buyers to explore and gives the impression that it's been well cared for.

Unclutter it.

It makes each room look larger and creates a roomy, comfortable feeling. Think “Give it away”, “throw it away” or “store it away”.

Maintain it.

Something as simple as tidying up, mowing the lawn or setting up a patio for a barbeque. "Curb appeal" is the attractiveness of your home when a potential buyer first drives up and parks at the curb. First impressions are critical.
