Selling your home is a big decision and the emotions that come with that decision can be overwhelming and often times can surprise home sellers.   We want to offer some hints and tips about the process of selling your home, remember we are here to help you!  

Make the Most of that First Impression
When selling your home in Texas, a well-manicured lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs and a clutter-free porch welcome prospects. The fewer obstacles between prospects and the true appeal of your home, the more appealing your home will be when prospective buyers drive up.   Also remember to have the temperature in the home at a good seasonal level - if the home is too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter buyers will leave quickly. Make the inside as appealing at the outside promised! 
Helping you Sell your home is our goal,

Invest a Few Hours for Future Dividends
Here's your chance to clean up in real estate. Clean up the living room, the bathroom, the kitchen. If your woodwork is scuffed or the paint is fading, consider some minor redecoration.  Remember, prospects would rather see how great your home really looks than hear how great it could look "with a little work."

Check Faucets and Bulbs
Dripping water rattles the nerves, discolors sinks, and suggests faulty or worn-out plumbing. Burned out bulbs or faulty wiring leave prospects in the dark. Don't let little problems detract from what's right with your home.

Don't Shut Out a Sale
If cabinets or closet doors stick in your home, you can be sure they will also stick in a prospect's mind. Don't try to explain away sticky situations when you can easily sand them away.

Make Room for Space
When selling your home remember that potential buyers are looking for more than just comfortable living space.  They want room to store their belongings, make your closets and storage spaces look spacious by cleaning them out and orginizing what must stay put. 

Make Your Bathroom Sparkle
Check and repair damaged or unsightly caulking in the tubs and showers. For added allure, display your best towels, mats, and shower curtains.

Create Dream Bedrooms
Wake up prospects to the cozy comforts of your bedrooms. For a spacious look, get rid of excess furniture.

Open up in the Daytime
Let the sun shine in! Pull back your curtains and drapes so prospects can see how bright and cheery your home is.

Lighten up at Night
Turn on the excitement by turning on all your lights-both inside and outside-when showing are scheduled.  Lights add color and warmth, and make prospects feel welcome.

Watch Your Pets
Dogs and cats are great companions, but not when you're showing your home. Pets have a talent for getting underfoot. So do everybody a favor: Keep Kitty and Spot outside, or at least out of the way.


Getting you through the process is our expertise,

Keith & Reechia Powell
