Are first impressions really important? You better believe it!
When it comes to shopping for real estate, a first impression is a lasting one. This is why it is so important to make sure your home looks attractive, starting with the exterior. Driving by a home can leave a first impression on a person. Does your home look appealing enough on the outside to initiate a view of the inside? It should. Your home should look it’s best amongst other homes on the block, otherwise it will automatically stand out and be compared to more attractive, well maintained properties.
Now that you’ve made a good impression on the outside of your home, it’s important to maintain their opinion as they tour the inside. When entering a home, the first impression is usually determined by the “smell” or “odor”. If you just cooked heavily odored food the night before, you may want to take extra precautions in deodorizing the home before it’s time for showings. Next step, when you enter the home, what is the first thing you see? If it is several rooms or an entry, make sure the overall appearance is clean, neat, uncluttered and welcoming. Going out of your way to make a room look spectacular will pay off. The pay off comes when you receive positive feedback and a contract to follow.
