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.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house was under contract in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
