Congratulations! You have purchased your new Parry Custom home. You now need to sell the home that you currently own. This maybe the part that every one dreads, but it doesn’t have to be. Look at your home as a potential buyer would.
Does your home stand out from all the others in your neighborhood or for that matter homes currently on the market in your area? In order to attract buyers to your home there must be something attractive about the home they are purchasing. By sprucing up the exterior of your home will makes buyers anxious to see what is inside and will get you into your new Parry home sooner.
Front Entrance: Better known as the first impression zone, this must be a clean, freshly painted and inviting. Make sure the lighting is ample and all fixtures, switches and doorbell are working. Add charm by placing a welcome mat and if the weather permits, plants in urns near the entrance or stairs or something that will help buyers remember your home over the other ones that they are looking at.
Lawn: If you have a mailbox make sure that it is freshly painted. Repair fences and touch up if in need of paint or stain. A well-kept lawn means a well kept home. No one wants to buy someone else’s problem. Keep the walkway free of debris and clean up the landscaping.
For the homes exterior, paint trim, shutters and garage door in a shade that is complimentary to the home. It should be neutral enough to be pleasing to everyone’s taste, nothing out of the ordinary. Repair gutters, loose shingles or anything that is broken.
It may take some time to make these improvements, but if it helps your current home to sell quickly and get you into your new Parry home sooner, than it is time well spent.
