Showing Your Home At Its Best As the Seasons Change

Barren trees give buyers a clean view of your home and you need to make sure that they like what the see this fall and winter.  This is the perfect time to evaluate a few critical areas that you may have overlooked in the warmer months.
·        Soffits, fascia boards, and gutters – Make sure your gutters stay free from the falling leaves.  Ensure that they are clean with no discolorations or stains on them. Your soffits and fascia boards will be more exposed so you need to check the corners and edges that may not be in the condition you thought they were in.

·        Exterior Paint- Is your paint fading? Peeling? Your exterior is on display now.  By ensuring the exterior is well maintained, buyers will assume the inside is in as good as condition.

·        Landscaping- The colour of the grass is beyond our control.  Instead, highlight some focal points of your home with colorful flowers, plants and shrubs.  Don’t miss this easy opportunity to make your home stand out.

·        Your Main Entrance- Make it shine.  This is the best opportunity to create a warm and inviting impression on buyers and they will notice it as they pull up to your home.

Fall and winter can be a tough time to sell a home, but it doesn’t have to be.  By taking some time to ensure the exterior of your property is in pristine condition you can turn a slower time to sell into an opportunity for your home to stand out above the competition.
In a competitive market, the details can be the difference between a sale and stagnant listing. Which home will yours be?  For more innovative ideas and experienced, professional service, contact The Chambers Real Estate Team – Gary Chambers and Kim Suntjens, Associates for Century 21 Power Realty Ltd. in Drumheller, AB.
