Wondering what color sells? Color it sold!

By Joe and Deb - VR SAM on 3/6/2014

The number one question I am asked when preparing a home for sale is. “Do I have to paint every room white?” The next question is,”What color is the best color to paint a house for sale?” If this thought has been running through your head you are on the right track. Painting your house is the fastest and least expensive way to boost it to the top of its price range and possibly kick it up a level. Paint can bring a house up to date, clean it up, and give buyer’s the idea that they can move right in. And of course neutral colors are the easiest to live with. But does it have to be white? Absolutely not. Neutrals include soft taupe, linen, soft gray green, and putty. You may not have to paint at all “IF” the paint is in excellent condition, if it is a current soft neutral color, and if it is complimentary to the furnishings.

PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR SALE Part I Curb Appeal

By Joe and Deb - VR SAM on 3/6/2014

I’ll start by confessing that this is one of a thousand articles on preparing your home for sale. Why so many, why one more, and why now? Because it is critically important, now more than ever, to seize that one time opportunity to make a good first impression! In many areas of the country, it is clearly the buyers market and home owners have too much riding on the sale of their home to miss the opportunity to make a great first impression. This article will address “curb appeal” and will be followed by an article next month on “staging” the interior of your home.

Maintaining a High State of Readiness

By Joe and Deb - VR SAM on 3/6/2014

Your home is for sale. The problem is you actually live in it. So how do you keep it ready for that call from a realtor saying—“We’re in the neighborhood and my client would like to see your home—in 10 minutes.” First- let me say- don’t say no unless you absolutely have to. Shopping has changed from the old days of making an appointment 24 hours in advance. Realtors with their potential buyers move on to see as much as they can in the time they have. So here are a few tips to help you maintain the high state of readiness to show your home without losing your mind. Be ready to show- Be ready to go! Tackle the big jobs once. Pack up as much as you can in advance. Spaces clear of clutter will put the spotlight where you want it- on the home! It’s got to go sometime - better sooner than later. Take care of repair lists- buyers don’t want projects! Wash the windows. This adds a tremendous amount of curb appeal and goes a long way towards an overall feeling ...
