Lynn shares her excellent tips to follow when listing your home for sale:

-A Seller’s home will only have one chance to make a good first impression on a Buyer. As such, market preparation is vital. Your real estate professional is key in assisting with this effort.
-Most staging experts will tell you that Sellers must do three things to prepare their home for the market: Declutter (and clean,) depersonalize and accessorize. While you’re decluttering, depersonalize your home too!
-Odors drive Buyers away, so take steps to eliminate any odors that Buyers may find objectionable.
-Buyers like lots of light, so use high wattage (LED) bulbs that are safe to use in fixtures, and make sure your windows are also clean.
-Curb appeal is also crucial. Walkways should be clean, trash bins should be stored away, the yard should be weed free and the shrubs well-manicured.
-If showings are difficult for Buyers and their Agents, there will be fewer showings and fewer Buyers.
-Some Sellers will want to be present at showings, but this is nearly always a bad idea. Buyers typically feel uncomfortable when Sellers are present.
-When your home sells, please leave it totally vacant and in good, clean condition for your Buyers!.
