Selling Your Home

Call to schedule an appointment with one of our agents today 570-489-8628 or email mvanstonre@aol.com. When we come out we can make suggestions specific to your home. These are a few general tips to get you started. Try to step back and look at your house as though it were someone else’s.

  • Clean up (inside and out)
  • Remove personal photos. Let the buyer visualize the house as their own.
  • De-clutter. Make rooms look bigger with plenty of room for their things. Pack up anything that you don’t need and put it in storage.
  • Repaint dingy walls, but stick with warm, neutral colors.
  • Cut grass and shrubs giving the appearance of a low maintenance yard.
  • Paint exterior doors and any peeling paint.
  • Don’t try to second guess what the new owner will want. You may upgrade to a new gas stove thinking it will add value only to find they prefer electric.

Finally, keep your home accessible to realtors. Homes that don’t get shown don’t get sold. Don’t make it difficult for agents to get their clients into your home – if they have to make appointments well advance, or can only show it during a certain time periods, they will likely just cross your listing off and show homes that are easier to gain access to.
