Tips for sellers (traduction

The success of our marketing plan depends, not
only on choice of the appropriate promotion strategy and tactics,
but also on the arrangement and renovation of the place in
such a way that captures the attention of the prospective
buyer from the very first look.
Refurbishments & renovations
* Keep the building's exterior (door, windows,
number, garage etc.) in good repair, especially when we refer
to countryside places.
* Replace all the cracked down and broken windows and adjust
all doors, closets included, so that they can be opened and
* Dust, clean and scrub everything, remove posters and paint
the walls and the basement or/and the attic if there is one.
* Repair any damages in the bathroom, such as leaky taps and
toilets, cracked or broken mirrors, tabs or basins and clean
the place very well. The same stands for the kitchen's sink,
taps, oven and other appliances.
* Detect and record the condition of the overall electric
and water supply of your property and develop a plan that
priorities the seriousness of each problem and the urgency
for immediate repair.
10 Rules for successful showing
* Leave the place during showing
By this way we will have the opportunity to handle all the
objections that may not have been brought up, if you were
* Turn on every light in the place!
This includes closets, bathrooms and it makes the place seem
brighter and cheerful thus creating a pleasant atmosphere.
* Open all drapes, curtains and blinds!
Let all the sunlight you can to come in. Do not spoil may
be your chance to give the impression of a warm, fully "lighted"
* Turn off the television!
The noise and the images from a TV set can become the worst
way to distract a person's focus.
* Turn on the stereo!
Some soft, "easy listening" music on low volume
can improve the impression of a peaceful, serene atmosphere.
* Open all the closet doors!
Rooms will appear larger and the neatly arranged spaciousness
of your property will be emphasized.
* Keep all the pets outdoors!
Especially in countryside places, sometimes, there are people
who will be annoyed by the disturbance and inconvenience that
may be created by a pet that is indoors.
* Lower or raise the thermostat!
During summer let people notice your air conditioning system
efficiency and on winter times make the place feel welcomingly
* Build a blazing fire!
When there is one, it can help you promote a feeling of enjoying,
relaxing place in which everyone would like to rest.
* Bake bread!
The aroma of traditional days and habits empowers the family
spirit of a place. A fresh pot of coffee or warming cinnamon
rolls can have the same result as well.
