Property Condition

Research tells us that first impressions are lasting.  How many times have you made up your mind about a product within the first few seconds of seeing it?  Real estate is no different.  This is why it is important that your property is shown in its best light to all prospective purchasers.  
Most every property has a cluttered closet or is need of a few small tweaks.  Sometimes it takes an outside perspective to recognize this. The associates with Funkhouser Real Estate Group will assist to make sure your home is ready to give a positive first impression.  This happens by working together to identify possible areas for improvement, creating a strategy to address areas of concerns and implementing a plan to welcome the purchaser.
Here are just a few suggestions to get your home ready for today’s market:
  • The curb appeal of your property is always the buyer’s first impression.  Consider maintaining a fresh cut yard, colorful flowers and even a freshly painted mailbox.  The small details can make the biggest difference.
  • Your home should be free from pet, cooking and other stale odors.  Consider airing out your home prior to a showing and stay away from overwhelming air fresheners.  They may give the impression you are trying cover up a smell that is ingrained into the home.  
  • A recently popular word is ‘declutter’.   This should be the focus for most homeowners as a clean and spacious property gives a prospective purchaser the ability to visualize the home as their own.
