Did you ever wonder why it is that you hear certain phrases over and over again and why they always seem to stand the test of time? Well, that's usually because the phrase is true or because it always holds true as good advice. So today we will focus on a phrase that I am sure everyone is familiar with, YOU NEVER GET A SECOND CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION.
It's true, so if you don't put your best foot forward from the start, you stand the chance of losing buyers that would otherwise be interested in your house. The fact is that your house could fit their needs in every other way, but if it doesn't show well, the buyers usually walk.
The fact of the matter is that these days buyers are looking for a move in ready home, rather than a project to make their own. They don't won't to have to paint over loud colored walls or to replace the carpet after they close. If you get this done from the start, everything runs more smoothly. If buyers have to step over piles of dirty cloths or look past the clutter to see how much counter space is in the kitchen, it's hard for them to get over.
The truth is that buyers do not want to look past or get over anything, so why make them. After all, you are the one that wants to sell your house, so why not make sure that you put yourself in the best possible position to do so. And that includes making any repairs that you know must be done prior to listing the home for sale and taking care of anything that may need to be done before a potential buyer walks through the door.
