• Selling residential real estate is Darren’s business. He encourages sellers to learn from our experience on how to expose the most attractive features of your property and prepare for showings or open houses.
  • Make sure your rooms are not cluttered. Clear all excess chairs, lamps, magazines, toys, and tables that you don’t use. If you have to ask if it needs to be removed, it usually should be removed. Try to un-personalize your home by removing family photos, this enables potential buyers to visualize themselves living there.
  • Windows should sparkle. Blinds and curtains should be open and lights should be on to brighten the room.
  • If the paint is peeling or cracking, consider totally repainting the property.
  • Closets will seem bigger if they are not too full.
  • Clean your bathrooms, kitchen, and mop the floors. Remember, the cleaner you keep your house, the faster it will sell.
  • Flowers, potpourri, or even the smell of freshly brewed coffee will make your home more inviting.
  • Agents and buyers often feel more relaxed and comfortable discussing the property in private. Perhaps you would prefer to be away during the showing.
  • Darren will provide a CMA to price your property to sell for the highest price in the least amount of time possible.
  • Mentally prepare to move out of your place.
