There are small things you can do that will add value for buyers

Cervone, Deegan + Associates certainly can tell you that this market is hot. Despite homes selling extremely quickly with an average days on market of just 18 per the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), there are still things you can do as a seller to ensure that your home truly shines so you can get the greatest possible return. Here is a closer look.

Make Buyers Feel Welcomed

Nobody wants to feel uncomfortable or feel a home is messy when they tour it – that can be a turn off. Take time to declutter the home and stow away any personal items such as family photos, diplomas, awards or other similar sentimental items. The more neutral and tidy the home is, the better a buyer can picture themselves living there.


Right up there with decluttering is cleanliness. Make sure for every open house and private buyer showing that the home is free of toys scattered around, no stacks of papers in the kitchen and beds are made. This is a sure way to keep from distracting buyers from what makes your home so great. Also, keep the home smelling clean and pleasant. In particular the kitchen should be a focus for this.

Buyer Access

In short, make it accessible to all. You will want each and every interested party to be able to tour the home and make an offer. If your home is available at any time then that opens up more possibilities for you.

The Right Price

Even in today’s market conditions it is important to set the right price to maximize potential. If you price it too high, you can get less in the end. Pricing too high will eliminate some buyers as you exceed their price range while you may encourage others to submit a lower offer. The goal is to price it accurately letting competing buyers organically drive the final sales price up.
