- Touch up paint chips, holes, and scratches
- Repaint unappealing walls
- Replace dull light bulbs
- Tighten loose door knobs or handles
- Vacuum and sweep the floors
- Dust fans and countertops
- Stain kitchen cabinets (if necessary)
- Get rid of the clutter

Curb Appeal Matters
Curb appeal is the attractiveness of your home and its surroundings from the exterior. It’s crucial to selling your home because the front of the house is the first thing potential buyers see when they come to look at the property. Your home only gets one first impression so you want to make it count! To improve your curb appeal and make sure your home gives off the best first impression, consider doing the following:
- Mow the lawn
- Pull any weeds or dead plants
- Trim the trees and rake the leaves
- Plant fresh flowers (if necessary)
- Touch up paint chips or scratches
- Repaint the exterior (if necessary)
- Replace dull light fixtures
- Power wash the driveway and windows
- Consider replacing your mailbox
Home Staging leads to a quicker, more profitable sale.
leads to a quicker, more profitable sale. While many buyers can picture changes that need to be made to a property, most can only see what is right in front of them. Thus, home staging is important to affecting the potential buyer’s perception because it allows them to easily visualize the property as their future home. By decluttering, deep cleaning, and redecorating, staging your home will look fresher and less personal. Hiring a professional stager can also make the selling process faster and easier for you. Make your home stand out from the competition and get the most out of your home value by staging it before you sell.
The Price is Right
Perhaps the most important factor to determining whether a home will sell or not is the price. If you price your home too low, you might lose out on the profits, but if you price your home too high, you might have trouble selling your property. So how do you find the sweet spot? That’s where the Kortney Williams Team comes in. Our team of experienced Realtors understand today’s market and have the expertise it takes to accurately estimate the value of your home.
