When Selling your Home in Harrisburg PA....SWEAT the Small Stuff!

When Selling your Home in Harrisburg PA....SWEAT the Small Stuff!

Everyone has heard, "Don't sweat the small stuff"...but when selling your home, The Small stuff can make a BIG difference.  Some Buyers can overlook the small stuff, but most can't and won't.  By Small Stuff, I am referring to things like burnt-out light bulbs, loose doorknobs, closet doors that are off the hinges, small tears in the screen on the back porch.  There are also quick & easy "Housekeeping" items that can make the home feel tidy, clean, and well maintained while selling your home.

Wipe Your Feet

So, you are selling your home. Are your dresser drawers closed? Is your cute little trash can in the bathroom empty? Replace the empty toilet paper tube. Remove the stickers off your child's bedroom door. Touchup and/or repaint, if necessary.  Maybe the refrigerator, oven,  and dishwasher fronts needs to be cleaned; or the dog hair removed from the baseboards.  The Cleaner, The Better when selling your home

Same applies to the outside, as well when selling your home. What is laying around that could be put away? Hoses, buckets, bicycles, garden tools, etc. Be aware of what has become normal for you; but would be an eye-catcher for someone who has never seen your home. Curb appeal goes miles when selling your home!

I can provide you with valuable tips for selling your home. Do not start this endeavor on your own. When Selling your Home in Harrisburg PA....Sweat the Small Stuff!
