As part of our ongoing efforts to help our Stephenville clients sell their home, we found an article from www.frontdoor.com highlighting ten tips to entice prospective buyers. While we are client advocates for selling your Stephenville home, these are smart and effective suggestions which home sellers should pursue prior to listing and marketing your property. The objective is to present an attractive package potential purchasers will be unable to resist.
Paint the Entranceway: A fresh coat of paint and cleaning up the entrance to your home is a great way to make a first impression
Convert to Hardwood: If your home does not feature hardwood, redoing the floor may sound like a costly endeavor but most buyers place a premium on hardwood, particularly in common areas like living rooms and dens
Update Fixtures: Replacing old doorknobs, faucets and showerheads will appeal to detail-oriented buyers gauging every square inch of your home
Beautify Bathrooms: Again, what could be a costly endeavor does return tremendous interest from buyers; if updating the entire room is not doable, replacing old mirrors, fixtures and lighting can make a difference
Countertop Amendments: While granite is highly sought after, at least ensuring that your countertops are intact and unblemished is a huge step forward
Consider Steel: Replacing old appliances is another investment which could pay big dividends when it comes time to sell your home and steel is always at the top of the list
Organize Closets: Reduce the visible clutter, particularly in storage areas and closets; a well-ordered home is an appealing home
Improve Lighting: Look for ways to increase natural light and install overhead fixtures
Upgrade Amenities: Proffering “free furniture” like built-in shelves, entertainment centers and cabinets is a major bonus to buyers
Do a Landscaping Facelift: Green lawns and trimmed hedges present a clean attractive portrait of a real home
These are just a few of the short- and long-term steps you can take to improve your speed of sale, not to mention securing desired pricing. We have many more we’ve been offering to our clients selling their homes in Stephenville for years. Give us a call today to hear a few more.

“Desiree Bridges went above and beyond to help us first time home buyers go through the, at times stressful, process. She constantly followed up on items and helped us stay on track, along with the bank and seller. Throughout the entire process she was professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. She took our complete lack of real estate knowledge in stride and answered every question. We never had to worry that something was slipping through the cracks on her end. And now we are satisfied home owners. Highly recommend and if I were gonna to buy another one I’d go with Miss Desiree again at Hayden Real Estate!!”
