Don’t Let The Details Get The Best Of You!
Offered by Jan Hepp-Struck
As I stated in July, there are a myriad of things to do before you are ready to sell your home. You’ve probably heard the expression “the devil is in the details,” and it’s kind of true – missed details, especially around deferred maintenance, can most definitely have a hand in derailing a deal.
You only get one opportunity to make a first impression with potential buyers. Along with the obvious importance of curb appeal, little cosmetic repairs like making sure the doorbell works and the windows are clean help give the impression that you are on top of things and the house has been well cared for. Conversely, a non-working doorbell, or other little things of that nature can cause a potential buyer to wonder what else might not work, or hasn’t been cared for.
In that same vein, clean everything! In most instances, storage is a huge selling point for homes. So it stands to reason that potential buyers are going to open drawers, cabinets, closet doors, and in the case of appliances included with the purchase, the refrigerator, dishwasher, and oven, to inspect the space. Unless you really enjoy cleaning, this might be a good time to hire some professionals to come in and do a real deep cleaning, including all the nooks and crannies where crumbs, dust bunnies, and critters (or their aftermath) might be hiding!
