The best price to sell your home is always determined by how you compare against your competition, the house down the street. If your property looks better than the next guyís the customer will buy yours.


It all comes down to image, making sure it shows at its best. This is accomplished with minor repairs, some decorating and a lot of elbow grease. Itís no different than a used car dealer shining up the cars inside and out. You systematically go through your home, inside and out, room by room, and make it look great.


Outside


Paint it, wash it, mow it and clip it. First impressions are lasting, and you donít get a second chance to make a good first impression. Look at your home from the street. If you canít see it through the trees, trim bushes so windows are completely exposed. Make sure your approach to the house is clear of overhanging foliage. Wash the windows. If you have a blacktop driveway, put a fresh coat of sealer on it. Dress up flowerbeds with new shrub or flowers and repair any damaged fencing.


Inside


Arrange furniture in to give the most visual appeal to the room. This may not be the most functional, but at this point we donít care about function. Clean up the rooms of any clutter, toys, excess furniture, books or anything that gets thrown around. Youíd be amazed at how many sellers donít do this. Donít forget clean, clean, clean.


The less in a closet the larger they look. If the master bedroom is short on closet space, you should consider adding a closet organizer.
