It’s true that first impressions are lasting, so be sure that your house creates a strong first impression. They call it curb appeal for a reason! Stand in front of your house. What will potential buyers see as they arrive? Nicely trimmed shrubs? A well-manicured lawn? Potted plants? These enhancements can make subtle yet powerful statements. Your house may fulfill all the criteria potential buyers want for location, price, style and amenities, but it still needs to make an emotional connection. Inspire buyers by creating scenarios where they can picture themselves. To do so, create a neutral slate by using subtle colors in your entryway, living room, family room and dining room; eliminate excess personal memorabilia; and engage all of the senses with soft music, a warm fire and fresh flowers. Two key areas that buyers tend to focus on are the kitchen and the bathrooms. A clean kitchen sends a positive message. And a beautiful bathroom is compelling. Many buyers prefer to purchase a house classified as “move-in condition,” so make sure you repair leaky faucets, remove rust stains and fix sticky drawers. Simple repairs now can mean the difference between potential home buyers moving on or making an offer.

Even those who embrace the idea that everything has a place and maintain their house accordingly might feel overwhelmed by the process. Creating a plan of action, however, and then working methodically through it, will help you ready your home for inspection. Things Needed, Cleaning supplies, boxes, paint, tools. Organize. De-clutter your house. Get three large boxes and mark them "Trash," "Donate," "Keep/Pack." Go through each room with an objective eye. Move items that are not necessary for everyday living into one of the three boxes. The more spare room you can make on shelves and in closets, the larger your home will look. Selling your house is an excellent time to get rid of extra stuff you've accumulated. Donate it, or — if it's broken — toss it. Move the boxes you've packed to a storage unit or a corner of a garage. Pack personal items. Potential buyers will come through your house to view it. To be safe, pack up small personal items that are valuable to you. Part of your packing will be done when it's time to move. Take down and wrap photos of family members. Pack them securely in a box and be sure to mark the box "Fragile." Potential buyers want to envision their family in their new home. Go to www.KnowBeforeBuyYourHome.com or call 301-418-8640 https://youtu.be/TT1naOfAMHI

1. Don’t Get “Pre-Qualified”! Do you want to get the best house you can for the least amount of money? Then make sure you are in the strongest negotiating position possible. 

Price is only one bargaining chip in the negotiations, and not necessarily the most important one. Often other terms, such as the strength of the buyer or the length of escrow, are critical to a seller.
