The number one thing to do before every showing is to clean your home. We recommend your home be as clutter-free as possible. Also, a little landscaping goes a long way. Remember, the outside is the first impression on buyers and often sets the tone of the showing so make sure things are tidy around the yard, porches, and garages. This includes mowing the lawn, raking leaves, and keeping flower beds kept or cleaned. Last, make sure any small items on the "repair to do list" are seen to such as a broken cabinet door, missing light cover, damaged knob, etc. For any larger repairs, talk with us to make sure it is necessary before selling.
In this situation we recommend that a you have the potential buyer contact us to set up a showing appointment or write up an offer. As realtors, we are here to make the selling process easier for you by handling all of these things and using our knowledge as professionals to get the job done. Q: How much is your commission? A: Here at Young's Realty-Smith Lake Properties we charge a 6% commission on all sales.
