Are you getting ready to list your Spring Texas house for sale? Before you list take the time to see, smell, and experience your house as a potential buyer.
Look up, look down, look all around your house as this is exactly what buyers will do. And when buyers do this what will they see. Will buyers see cobwebs on the light fixtures, dust on the fan blades, and dust on the a/c return vent? Will they see walls needing a fresh coat of paint and baseboards with a coating of dust.
Buyers are not understanding of your busy schedule. A schedule that’s filled with dentist appointments, band practice, and basketball games. Buyers buy clean and fresh.
Smell: What do you smell as soon as you enter your house? Do you smell last night’s dinner? Do you smell a litter box that is overdue for a clean out? Do you smell the stench of stale smoke? Do you smell burning meditation oils? Unless it’s the smell of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies buyers are turned off by odors.
Experience: Does your house feel as warm and inviting as a model home? Or are buyers going to feel like they are invading your personal space? Do you a wall filled with personal photos and college diplomas? Buyers fall in LOVE with model homes because the furniture is right sized for the space, the area is free of clutter, and the rooms have been staged. Model homes feel as if someone lives there but no one in particular. Buyers are able to envision themselves living in the space.

We have had the privilege to work with the amazing Jill Wente twice in the past 4 years. If you want to work with someone who is very knowledgeable in the realty business and beyond that, look no further. From day one she was ready to help us and answer any questions that we had. You can see her passion and professionalism as soon as you meet her. Everything is perfect, from the photos to the staging of our home and even the fliers that she had made showcasing our home is perfect. She goes above and beyond. So if you want your house to get sold and want it done right, I'd recommend Jill Wente everytime. Anyone can put a house on the market, few can get it sold earlier than expected. She had a contract on both of our homes we sold within days of being on the market. Thank you Jill for being the best at what you do. read less
