First Impressions Are Lasting Ones
Today’s competitive real estate market requires homeowners to put their best foot forward when preparing to market their home for sale. Homes that are updated and maintained will sell faster and for a higher price. Sometimes just a few repairs, cleanup, and minor redecorating can enhance the home and expedite the sale. In some instances, it is beneficial to undergo more extensive redecorating. Many sellers will insist on making allowances for updating while not understanding that buyers many times fail to see past the obvious. Buyers may also estimate updating and repair to be much more expensive than they would actually be.
