Top Ten Home Sale Killers...

1. Dirt-invite Mrs. clean over.

2. Odors-get another opinion, we can't smell odors in our own home-be especially aware of pet and smoking odors.

3. Old fixtures-brass is out! Spend a few dollars on new cabinet hardware and new doorknobs for your interior doors. Update ceiling fans and light fixtures.

4. Wallpaper-buyers just hate it! I have had people not buy a very nice home because of it, they just bought a similiar home with no wallpaper.

5. Popcorn acoustic ceilings-screams 1970's.

6. Too many personal items-take down trophies, family photos and place a mirror in a strategic spot. You want the buyer to picture themself in the home!

7. Snoopy Sellers-leave the house when agents are showing!

8. Misrepresenting your home-be honest about any negatives.

9. Poor Curb Appeal-wash windows, pick up newspapers, trim bushes, power wash siding.

10. Clutter-rent a storage locker if you have to! You don't want your home to look small!
