Plymouth MA, South Shore and Cape Cod Real Estate Blog



The little things--both positive and negative-can make a big difference to prospective buyers who are interested in your home, especially in today's market where competition can be fierce.

Before you list your home, go through the house with a careful eye. Fix any loose doorknobs, popped screen doors, and loose grout around the tub and shower. A coat of fresh paint can work wonders to dress up a house.  Wash the windows, hang a pretty plant from the bathroom skylight, and clean out the closets.  Arrange the furniture to make the room look larger. If the rooms look cluttered, put your extra furniture into storage.  You can brighten up a room by increasing the wattage of the light bulbs. 

Going the extra mile to showcase your home will pay significant dividends when it's time to show it to buyers.  The less imagination people must bring with them when they look at your house, the greater your chances of selling your home quickly and for top dollar.

I have a stager work with my sellers in preparing their home for sale.  All of the information that you supplied is exactly what she recommends.  Great list!

All great ideas and I am going to share them with my agents so they can go through their listings and give the sellers suggestions as to the work that may need to be done to showcase their homes....

great tips.  I always recommned a pre-inspection by a professional home inspector, makes the buyers much more comfortable in putting in offers
