I Need A Real Estate Agent Kansas City Ed Rippee Can Help Prepare For An Open House3/12/2019
I need a real estate agent Kansas City, and I’d like to have an open house to show my home that I’m selling – how do I prepare for this? Ed Rippee, RE/MAX Results Kansas City, is ready to help you sell your home and help you with an open house. Here are some tips on how to make your home inviting and ready for potential buyers.
1) Eliminate half of your belongings as clutter can cost a sale. Rent a storage unit or portable pod for extraneous pieces of furniture or knickknacks. Another idea is to ask a friend if you can borrow some space in his or her garage. This makes potential buyers able to visualize their own belongings in your home.
2) I need a real estate agent Kansas City! A professional realtor like Ed will advise you to use "home wash" (hose attachment available at home improvement stores) to clean the outside of the house so it’s in pristine condition. Also, clean rain gutters as well as outside windows and screens.
3) Make sure your front door is inviting. If necessary, paint the door and replace any outdated outdoor lighting fixtures. Buy new house numbers if the old ones are faded. It helps for buyers to be able to see the new numbers from the curb. A new welcome mat adds to the cleanliness of the outside of your home and is inviting for potential buyers.
4) Some buyers will look in your closets and drawers to see how much space they have. I need a real estate agent Kansas City – Ed Rippee will make sure your home is ready for an open house and offer advice as a professional real estate agent.
5) Make any necessary repairs so that buyers don’t have to add it to their list of expenses. Any minor repairs can be done by the home seller, or if necessary, a handyman or whatever kind of service is needed for the repair.
6) Rearrange furniture to make rooms appear as large as possible. You may have your couch or recliners set up in a way to view your TV better, but when hosting an open house, consider moving furniture around to show potential buyers the different ways they would be able to place their own furniture.
7) Make every surface shine, from dusty ceiling fans to baseboards. Don’t forget windows inside, mirrors, and floors. Scrub every inch of the kitchen and bathrooms. Also, buy air neutralizer and spray it often for any odors that may permeate throughout your home, such as pet odor.
