10 Points To Consider When Selling Your Home

  1. If possible, sell before buying - you're in a much stronger position to negotiate.
  2. A coat of paint does wonders, but don't go overboard with renovations just before selling as you may not recoup the money you spend.
  3. When selecting a paint color just before selling, wherever possible choose white or something neutral.
  4. Create a warm friendly atmosphere with fresh flowers and lots of light - for day showings open the drapes and for night showings switch on all inside and outside lights.
  5. Repair any roof leaks or damp patches -- these two things make buyers very nervous.
  6. Tell the REALTORĀ® exactly what is staying and what is not (i.e. fixed shelves and mirrors).
  7. Make sure that your home is properly priced, so that it may compete to its best advantage in the market place.
  8. Keep your home uncluttered - please put it away in boxes for the duration of the marketing of your home.
  9. Keep lawns trimmed and garden neat.
  10. Use Tom Whitfield as your REALTORĀ® to get top dollar for your home, the best terms, and least inconvenience to you.
