Maximizing Your Home's Potential
We live in our homes one way; we market them in another. Just as builders recognize that a finished, clean, pleasantly decorated model home enables them to enhance the appeal of the homes they are building, “staging” your home to enhance its appeal will give you a competitive edge against all the other homes on the market. $500 spent in cleaning, painting, and making minor repairs will pay you back as much as $5,000 in a higher sales price and result in a faster sale. Wade and his team know which items are cost-effective and will pay you back many times over in buyer interest.
After you agree to list your home with Wade, he will detail which simple, easy steps you can take to enhance your home’s appeal. Wade is responsible for marketing your home. Through the price you set and the efforts you take to dress your home for success, you are in control of the marketability of your home.
If your home’s exterior looks clean, orderly and in good repair, that’s the impression your house will convey. A dirty home and clutter can obscure your home’s good points, so start with a thorough cleaning from top to bottom. Place unused items and furniture in a storage unit or hold a garage sale. Less clutter means a more spacious home – an important selling point.
Inspect your home as a potential buyer would.
