Making a Good First Impression

If you want buyers to be interested in your home, you need to show it in its best light. A good first impression can influence a buyer both emotionally and visually, thus prompting them to make an offer. In addition, what the buyer first sees is what they think of when they consider the asking price.

A bad first impression can dissuade a potential buyer. Don’t show your property until it’s all fixed up. You do not want to give buyers the chance to use the negative first impression they have as means of negotiation.

Ask around for the opinions others have of your home. Real estate agents who see houses everyday can give solid advice on what needs to be done. Consider what architects or landscape designers have to say. What you need are objective opinions, and it’s sometimes hard to separate the personal and emotional ties you have for the home from the property itself.

Typically, there are some general fix ups that need to be done both outside and on the inside. As a seller, you should consider the following:

  • Landscaping - Has the front yard been maintained? Are areas of the house visible to the street in good condition?
  • Cleaning or Redoing the driveway - Is your driveway cluttered with toys, tools, trash etc.?
  • Painting - Does both the exterior and the interior look like they have been well taken care of?
  • Carpeting - Does the carpet have stains? Or does the carpet look old and dirty?

Nick Duzich was very aggressive when it came to selling our house. We were in the process of being transferred to Corpus Christi and our family was split up. He knew this was a difficult time for us. Nick went above and beyond to make sure to market the house. We had lots of showings and he made sure it was advertised everywhere. It was non stop interest. We had to be on our toes with all the requests and showings. Nick did an amazing job and we were in contract within 3 weeks. Nick was always there for us and went above and beyond to help in any way he could. He is very professional and trustworthy. Nick treated our house with respect. He was very helpful and very easy to communicate with. Talking to him is like talking to a friend. You feel like you have known him for years. I would recommend Nick to anyone who is looking for a realtor who will come into your home and sit down with you and listen. He is definitely there for his clients and he will treat you like family. This was the easiest transition in all my house buying years.  The Wallanders, Wichita Falls, Texas
