Don’t Neglect The Smaller Details When Listing Your Home

By Living Room Realty, May 13, 2019

Seriously, I think small details can make the biggest impressions on a potential buyer’s likelihood of making an offer on your home. A well-maintained exterior signals to buyers that the interior has probably been similarly well maintained. Make sure you trim trees, lay fresh mulch (I like the blackest kind for photos), pressure-wash dirty surfaces.  Little improvements, such as CLEANING the cobs webs off your old porch light fixture, replacing a rusty mailbox, or painting the front door, can go a long way.

If my sellers have original window or cabinet hardware, or old heating registers that are thick with years of paint, I like to take them back to my house and strip them over my stove.  Often the original finish is beautiful underneath, and if not, you can always spray them a new color.  One that matches your wall trim or a burnised brown

Its all in the details.  The little-bitty details
