The Clutter Isn’t Cute

We’ve talked about the importance of curb appeal — that you only have “one chance to make a first impression” with the exterior of your home. Well, the same can be said for the interior.

The phrase, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” couldn’t be truer when putting your home on the market. So, think carefully about that first impression. It starts the moment someone steps out of their car — take a look at your home through the eyes of the buyer and ask yourself, “is this home well cared for?” “is it in good condition?”. That perception often starts on the outside even before a buyer has stepped through […]
