Did you know whether your home is clean and tidy or not can make a difference of up to 10% on the sale price of your home.

It's true. People like to think they make logical decisions. However, most decisions including buying a home are made emotionally and then justified with logic. When people walk into a home whether they buy it is in most cases based on how they "feel" when they walk through the home. Many times a buyer will tell a Realtor at the start of their search that they want a 3 bedroom home in East Hill with a double detached Garage and a finished basement. Then they buy a 2 story in Alexis Park with a single garage and an unfinished basement. How can it be so different?Because people start out with a logical set of wants but end up with a house they simply felt good about. This is why it is so important to make sure that your home shows as best as it possibly can. Shampoo the carpets, touch up the paint, manicure the lawns and yard and clean it top to bottom before a showing. It is a lot of work every time you show your home. However, one study showed that these little extras can make a difference in the sale price of a house of up to 10%. In the North Okanagan Real Estate Market that could be as high as $40,000. That's a lot of money for a little time and effort. Remember, it's a great time to buy.
