Exterior Clean-Up

Sellers should do more to their properties today to get them sold.

Even those who were nicely updated with the golden Tuscan look or cherrywood floors and cabinets just a few years ago look dated today.  Modern photography doesn’t hide it, and in some cases can make it look worse.

Do you remodel the whole joint?

Nobody wants to go too far, but there are modest improvements you can make to help the cause:

  1. New flooring and paint.
  2. New pulls and handles on cabinets.
  3. New towels and towel racks.
  4. New lighting – especially the LEDs.
  5. New sod and landscaping.

Here are a couple of extreme examples but for anyone selling a house that is more than ten years old, your trees are probably overgrown and more of a distraction.  The clean, crisp neutral look goes for the exteriors too:
