Sounds easy, selling your home in the summer…..but with 802 listings in the Fort McMurray city and area(that includes, single family homes, condos, mobiles and acreages), it becomes a buyer’s market quickly…..
Some tips to make your home more appealing in this competitive market:
NO CLUTTER….most people cannot see past the clutter to visualize how “their stuff” will look. This also includes the yard AND garage! Any Garbage that has blown into your yard from winter needs to be cleaned up as well…..don’t forget the dog poop!!! Not a bigger turn off for a buyer taking a stroll in your yard and……ewwwww!!
CLEAN THE WINDOWS!! It’s summer, so more SUNSHINE(we hope ) It’s much easier to see nose marks from pets, little finger marks and everyday smudges.
MOW & TRIM the LAWN….The first impression is the MOST important one, pulling up to a well cared for lawn and clutter free yard will impress even the most savvy buyers. Go the extra mile and get rid of those unsightly weeds as well. Tidy up the flower beds, even if you don’t plant anything with the impending sale….neat and clean will win over over grown and uncared for….
Hang up some flowers or buy some flower pots…..this has the same effect as having the smell of baking cookies for a winter sale…..Give the sense of ‘HOME”.
