Take an Impartial Look before Selling your Home

Our bodies become accustomed to our environment and just as true we tend not see little problems or eye sores around the house in which we live. As everyone will tell you, the house sells itself, we, as humans whether FSBO or Realtors are responsible for marketing. You as the home owner have the ultimate responsibility to help the house sell itself by making sure that the details are addressed. Often though you cannot see the details. A good Realtor will take a look around and identify areas that you, as the homeowner need to address. If you are like most people, you like to avoid the Realtor fees and commissions, but whatever you decide, do not avoid reviewing your house. Little things like exterior paint discoloration, or perhaps a small piece of rotted wood. Maybe there is a carpet stain, barely noticeable. When someone visits your house for a potential purchase, they are looking for problems... The cinical side of human nature is that the Seller is hiding something and it is the Buyer's responsibility to find out what it is they are hiding. Every little detail will be seen... WHY? Because they are not accustomed to your house. It allows Buyers to see all those things you do not see... ADVICE! If you are unable to really see what your house looks like, and you do not want a Realtor; ask your neighbor or friend to come by and scrutinize your property. You might be surprised what they will see, that you cannot.
