Presenting Your Home
Buying can be an emotional decision. Buyers often know within a few seconds of walking through your doors that they have found the "one". Senses play a key role in helping us identify when a home is either right or wrong for us almost right away.
- Is the home bright?
- Does it smell clean?
- Are the floors clean?
- Can you hear the neighbors dog?
- Can you see yourself living there?
- Is it spacious?
Buyers will have lots of questions. You want to ensure that your home is looking its absolute best from the moment that buyers arrive so that showings run smoothly and successfully!
As much as possible, you want to be able to remove any hesitation or objections that buyers may raise. Objections create hesitation and doubt, and they also have buyers doing math and taking dollars away from their final offer price.
HERE ARE TEN TIPS
Grab the attention of buyers from the curb and simple ways to leave a lasting impression on buyers.
No matter the season, as soon as buyer parks their car in front of your home, they are assessing your home based on your curb appeal. Freshly moved lawns and maintained gardens in summer show pride of ownership! Toronto winter can be harsh and buyers will want to get indoors quickly! Ensuring a clear and safe path to the front door is critical.
A well-placed planter with a seasonal arrangement on your front porch is a low cost yet high-impact addition. We always love being welcomed by a nice outdoor mat and seasonal arrangement because it almost means we are about to enter a lovingly maintained home!
