How to Impress Buyers on the Highlands Ranch Real Estate Market


It’s spring time, which as you may or may not know is the busiest season for the Highlands Ranch real estate market. If you plan on selling your home soon, you may face a great deal of competition from other sellers who are going after the same buyers you are. How can you make your home stand out from the others? Follow these tips to impress potential buyers:

Get your carpets cleaned.
You may not notice a small stain on your carpet that has been there for years, but it will probably stick out like a sore thumb to a buyer who is walking through your house for the first time. Before listing your home, have your carpets cleaned so you can present your house in the best light possible.

Replace burnt out bulbs.
Houses look better when they are lit up, so make sure all of your lights are working by replacing the bulbs that have burnt out. Before potential buyers come to see your home, either you or your agent should ensure all of the lights have been turned on so the buyer gets the full effect.

Find a babysitter for your pets.
Do you have a pet? Ask a friend or neighbor to watch your pet if you have buyers coming over to look at your home. Why? Some buyers could have allergies, and you don’t want to send them home with a full blown allergic reaction. Other buyers may love your animal, but then he or she may become too much of a distraction. If a buyer really loves dogs, he may not be able to take his attention off of your pet long enough to focus on the details of your home. Eliminate the possibility of this happening by finding a babysitter for your pets.

Check the front door.
Go outside and take a good hard look at you front door. Are there spider webs growing in the corners? Is the decorative glass dirty? What about the doorknob? Even though you probably pass through your front door everyday, it’s easy to forget to clean it off and make it look nice. But, this is one of the first things that potential buyers will see when they arrive at your home, so make sure it looks presentable.

Get rid of clutter.
Clutter can be distracting, and a buyer may not be able to focus on your home if he is too busy wondering why you didn’t clean up before he arrived. Additionally, clutter gives off the impression that you don’t keep up with your home, which could lead a buyer to wonder whether your home has severe maintenance issues he should know about.
