You’ve decided to list your home in our summer market. Congratulations! In order to take advantage of all the opportunities in front of you, you’ll need to be at the top of your game when it comes to your preparation.

After all, you only get one shot at making a good first impression, so today I’ll share two ways you can make your first impressions count.

You’ll first want to declutter and depersonalize the house. One of my specialties is helping sellers make minor adjustments after their home has gone unsold for a while. Recently, I did this very thing with a seller who asked me to lend my expertise and experience. We did some decluttering and depersonalizing and, just like that, the home sold.

Once that’s accomplished, consider repainting your home—especially if the home’s colors are a little passé. You’ll be amazed at how much more bang for your buck you’ll get with an updated interior and/or exterior paint job. Nowadays, white shades like “jersey cream” and gray shades like “agreeable gray” show really well with buyers.

If you have any specific questions about how to best prepare your home for today’s market or real estate in general, please give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
