**YOU NEVER GET A SECOND CHANCE TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION. Start with your lawn/landscaping. Curb appeal is key. Make sure your lawn is trimmed and edged. During winter, keep snow and ice removed from sidewalks and steps. **YOUR FRONT DOOR WELCOMES THE PROSPECT. Always make sure that it is clean and freshly painted. No peeling paint! A seasonal door decoration (wreath or something similar) adds a warm, inviting touch. **DECORATING HELPS ASSURE TOP DOLLAR. And a quick sale. Attractively painted walls, neutral colors, and proper staging adds appeal to your home. **CLEAN WINDOWS SHOW THE BRIGHT SIDE OF YOUR HOME. By opening drapes and curtains, you highlight your walls and ceilings. Make sure you get rid of old broken blinds/shades, or ripped/torn curtains. This will make your home appear more "cheerful". Use maximum wattage in lamps and light fixtures. **A CLEAN KITCHEN IS A MUST. Make sure your range/stovetop, dishwasher, sink and counter tops are clean and fresh. Remove most or all personal magnets from your refrigerator and make sure it's clean also. **SPARKLING BATHROOMS HELP SELL YOUR HOME. Shower doors, ceramic tile and grouting should be cleaned and free of soap film. Fixtures should be polished and free of water marks, repair caulking in bathtubs and showers. **AVOID CLUTTERED APPEARANCES. Remove excess furniture and other items that you seldom use. Keep newspapers, toys and other articles picked up. Clean stairways are essential. Objects on any stairs are dangerous. **MAKE CLOSETS LOOK LARGER. Remove packing items that can be stored elsewhere. Neat, well-organized closets show that there is ample space. **FROM TOP TO BOTTOM. Display the full value of your basement, garage or other utility spaces by removing all unnecessary articles. Dark, dull walls and cement floors are easily brightened with a coat of paint. If the basement or crawl space has a damp smell, place a bag of limestone in the damp area. **CHECK MAJOR APPLIANCES. Be sure to clean the exterior of the water heater, furnace and other appliances that will be seen by the prospective buyers. **REPAIRS ARE REQUIRED. If closet doors are off their tracks, door knobs loose, screen doors ripped or don't close, faucets dripping, etc. - have them fixed so we can get top dollar for your house and buyers won't "nit pick" your home, especially during the home inspection! **MANY INTRODUCTIONS ARE DISTRACTING. Have as few people as possible in the house when it is shown. This puts the prospective buyer at ease and gives them a chance to absorb clearly the advantages of your property. If you have a pet, we suggest you keep it out of the way, preferably out of the house, or at least caged. **LET YOUR HANNA ASSOCIATE TALK. Be polite but do not strike up a conversation with the prospective buyer. Your Hanna Associate has already given details on your property and needs all of the attention of the buyer to increase his/her interest. **NIGHT APPOINTMENTS. Remember to turn on the porch light and any other outside lights that highlight your property when showing the house after dark. Also be sure the house is well lit when the hour of appointment nears.
