“Buy” The Way

As a homeowner, improvements to your home and property on a regular basis makes your home more marketable and less costly when you are ready to list it. Along with location, condition is equally as important when selling your home.

Some tips for preparing your home for showings:


  • By painting walls a light or neutral color, rooms will appear larger.
  • Opening draperies and turning on lamps will brighten rooms.
  • Clean oven.
  • Keep kitchen and bath counters and sinks uncluttered.
  • Shampoo carpets, wax or buff hardwood floors.
  • Removing hampers and magazine racks from bathroom creates more space.
  • Repair leaky faucets.
  • Turning ceiling fans on low, burning potpourri and playing soft music enhance the viewing experience.
  • A few pictures of your home in Spring and Summer is a nice display.


  • All gates and latches should be functioning.
  • Paint exterior doors and window trim.
  • Repair rain gutters and down spouts.
  • Paint or stain fencing and decking.
