10 things REALTORS® should tell Sellers….but likely won’t!

  1. Buyers will open every drawer and every closet.  It’s a good idea to be sure these are neat and tidy too.
  2. Extension cords running every which way is not a good thing.
  3. Cheap fixes that look like cheap fixes…well, look like cheap fixes.  And they don’t reflect well on the maintenance of the home.
  4. Buyers will look inside the appliances too.
  5. A litter box for each cat may be good for the cats, but not for selling.
  6. Leaving signs of your personal habits (perhaps illegal ones) are not a good idea.
  7. Yellowed switch plates are another maintenance red flag.
  8. Old throw rugs are meant to be just that.  Thrown away.
  9. No one cares what the place looked like when you moved in.  What matters is how it looks now.
  10. REALTORS® are less than thrilled that your Aunt Louise is a REALTOR®.  If she is that good, why am I here?

And one extra bonus.  Buyers will look in the garage.  It is strange how many people keep their $50,000 car outside so they can store $200 worth of garbage in the garage.
