Home Seller Tips: Leisure Suits, Mullets and Big Hair–Selling your home in 2011.

Could you imagine if you went shopping for a new suit and all they had to show you were leisure suits of the 1970s?   Remember the old Members Only jackets?  Or the mullet haircuts and “big hair” of the 1980s?

When you see those things today you probably make a remark about "I remember when..." and move on to the next house.

If your home is still in the 80s (or 70s or even 60s), then your prospective buyers will likely do the same thing.

A little updating can do so much for your house.   And it does not need to be expensive updating like…
  • some neutral paint to replace your high personalized colors (or wallpaper), 
  • new carpeting instead of that shag,
  • counter tops – silestone, quartz, granite, solid surface are expected today instead of old worn laminate,
  • appliances - newer, energy efficient.
Focus on the two rooms which matter most to  buyers - bathrooms and kitchens.  There is no real secret to selling your house.

And while you are updating your house why not consider a pre-listing home inspection?
