Preparing your home for its next owner takes a great deal of time and preparation. It can be difficult trying to decide how to stage your home, what stays and what goes, to be certain that you have your best shot at providing the best possible impression to potential buyers. Alex Anninos, whose information can be found at http://www.youragentalex.com, is a dedicated and successful Realtor based in the New England area with the Mavroules Team and LAER Realty Partners. He recommends considering the following when you begin to stage your home to reel in numerous offers.

  1. Get rid of all clutter in your home. Surfaces should be open with hardly any belonging scattered across them. Any extraneous furniture has to go, as it opens up your home and ultimately looks much larger than it would otherwise. Get rid of everything that is not a necessity, or pack it away in storage.
  2. Use paint to your advantage. Painting two adjacent rooms the same color will appear more spacious, such as a kitchen and dining room, or living room and dining room. Also, experimenting with darker colors in bedrooms or bathrooms, or painting an accent wall, can all brighten up your home and make your items stand out even more.
  3. In any arrangement of items or accessories throughout your house, odd numbers tend to come off more favorably than even numbers, especially groups of three.
  4. Fix any missing floorboards or cracks in the walls or sidewalks. Anything that appears to be falling apart can detract from your asking price, and most of these issues are quick and cheap fixes.

As a Realtor, there are certain tips and tricks of the trade that will leave each client you work with walking away happy and satisfied with your service. Buying a new home is an exciting though daunting experience due to the numerous moving parts that must be considered throughout the entire process. Alex Anninos, a highly respected Realtor based in Danvers, Massachusetts, recommends that you consider the following to ensure that your clients feel happy and secure in their real estate experience.

  1. Dig deeply and ask good questions that are more revealing than your client’s desired number of bedrooms or bathrooms. Asking your clients what they like to do so that you can assess the surrounding area to ensure they have adequate access to their hobbies and activities is a must. Determining where your client is in their life pathway is incredibly important so that you can help them plan for their future. Whether that means children in the next few years, building additions to the home, the dream of a business that the client can run from their home, or building a pool in the backyard, you will be prepared.
  2. Communicate with your clients regularly, always keeping them in the loop. Nothing is more frustrating than working toward a really important goal when your Realtor and advocate is difficult to get on the phone. The process is both an exciting and stressful time for your client, and the feeling of trust and security will grow in depth if the communication is free-flowing.
  3. Research first. Bringing your client four or five homes that don’t fit their criteria rather than one that does is a waste of your time.
