Making The Right First Impression

Homes In Kingman

First impressions are everything.  Whether we appreciate this fact of reality or not, it's just that: a statistical fact.  According to an article published on the American Psychological Association's website entitled
First Impressions Count, "how you look and act can matter as much as your ideas."  This means it's important to be cognizant of the visual aesthetic we produce if we want our message to be received by our intended audience.   

This is especially true when it comes to selling your home.  Let's face it: walking into a home that isn't clean, in good repair, or is too cluttered to imagine your own furnishings in just isn't as compelling as setting foot in a pristine, well kept space.  As a seller, you want people to appreciate the home.  But they need your help looking past the surface to do that.  One of the best actions you can take when preparing to put your home on the market is to ensure that it looks appealing to your potential buyers.   

So if you're planning to sell your home in Kingman (or anywhere for that matter) here are a few tips:

7906 Larkspur Drive

  • Tidy up the front yard: what a buyer sees on the curb will determine whether they want to venture past it 

  • Scrub down that front door:  it's the first introduction to the rest of your home and will set expectations for the interior space    Unclutter:  removing magazines, refrigerator magnets, and personal knick-knacks allows buyers to see themselves in the home

  • Make repairs: replacing burnt out light bulbs and that broken kitchen drawer says that the home has been cared for Remember, you only have one chance at a first impression.  Make sure that your home says exactly what you want it to say. 

If you're reading this and thinking "I want to put my home up for sale, but I don't know where to start," we can offer you proven, modern strategies for marketing your home.   Or if you have any other questions about staging, showings, or real estate in general, it'd be our pleasure to help.   We'd love to hear from you.
