Make an EXTRA set of Keys!   Prospective Buyers and their Agents will need access to your home, so you will need an extra set of keys to give to your listing Agent.  It is worth the extra time and money to get a set of keys.  Even if you don't normally lock your house, you don't want the potential buyers knowing your home is not locked...

Day 3: Get Boxes & Duct Tape!


An important part of the adventure of selling is preparing the house! First impressions are key to capitalizing on a strong value for you investment.  One of the key and important tips is to DE-CLUTTER!  Removing items that are not necassary, removing personal photos and touching up the walls.  Packing up extra toys, books and cleaning out closets.  This will allow the potential purchasers to view the home and be able to see all aspects, in most cases it makes the home feel bigger.  Box it up and store the filled boaxes in a spare room or garage.
