The Topping on the Cake for Real Estate

The Topping on the Cake for Real Estate

March 8, 2010 | Barbara's Blog

Buyers in today’s market expect more. With lot’s of option’s out there it is all about the little extra.

The Recipe: Move-in-Ready with a little Wow factor.
How much work is enough? Here are my top suggestions for sellers:

1. Paint: Walls/trim throughout should be in great condition

2. Gardening/Curb Appeal: At a minimum: Clean, cut and well maintained.
Buyer’s won’t even leave the car if they do not like what they see

3. Flooring: Mint condition

4. Time to tackle all Handyman tasks, no deferred maintenance

5. cleaning; Do not cut corners here Each dollar a seller spends on these five items will make the property more presentable to the market and increase buyer’s the confidence that the the property is well tended and a solid investment.

And for the WOW factor? That’s when a Stager comes handy.
