Enlist Expert Advice for Optimal Showings

Want to avoid common pitfalls when showing your home in Brentwood, Tenn.? Ask an expert!

The last post touched briefly on the importance of de-cluttering your home before you open it for showings. You do not want your personal stuff to distract an interested buyer from seeing the full functionality of your home. Although most of us understand what clutter is, sometimes having an unbiased view of what should be labeled and boxed away as "personal stuff" is a little more difficult.

That’s where you need an expert. With more than 12 years of experience in the Brentwood, Tenn., real-estate business, I have seen what attracts and distracts people as they are looking for their dream home. Allow me to walk through your home with you so I can point out the extra things that need to be put away until you’re ready to move on to your new home. You see your home every day, so the things that you see just make it feel like home. As your hired expert, I can tell you what others see when they visit your home.

Still not ready to let go of Aunt Marge’s vast collection of baskets that take up half of your breakfast room? I’ll show you pictures of other listings that ARE selling so you will have a visual of what other people are looking for as they search for their perfect place. The people who are looking at your property have also seen several other properties, so yours needs to be up to par with what is selling.

Think of it this way: When someone comes to look at buying a home in Brentwood, Tennessee, they’re not buying it with all of your stuff in it. They’re buying it and picturing how their stuff will look in it. Anything that keeps them from seeing it that way could make them walk away and make an offer on a house that looks more like a blank canvas for them to fill in with dreams of how their home will look.

Allow me to get your home set up for successful showings! That’s one of the many things I can do for you!
