Local Selling Tips | CENTURY 21

Local Selling Tips < >

When selling your home, there are no guarantees that a buyer will simply walk through the front door. There are steps that you need to take so that your property receives maximum exposure to attract a ready, willing and able buyer.

The appearance of your home, a buyer's first impression, and other considerations can also affect the sale of your home. Have you considered that home prices in your neighborhood and the value of your property are also factors used for pricing your home? In many cases you may have to bring your home to the buyer. Effective marketing will help ensure that your home is sold in a timely manner at the best price.


Presentation is everything. Home buyers are attracted to clean, spacious and attractive houses. Your goal is to dazzle buyers.

  • Get rid of clutter and personal items from counter tops, tables and floors
  • Scrub-down your house from top to bottom, inside and out
  • Landscaping and touch-up paint can greatly increase curb appeal
  • Fix creakings steps, squeaky doors and holes in walls

Once you feel your home is ready, invite a friend to walk through your house as a buyer would and point out anything you may have overlooked.
