You know the old saying about not being able to see the forest for the trees? Well, that can apply to real estate. It’s natural to be attached to your home and therefore not be able to see it “clearly,” like a buyer would.

If you’re selling, you’ll need to get into an objective frame of mind. Look at your home from the street and be as judgmental as possible. Ask yourself, “What would make someone want to buy my home?” and remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Jot down what you would change, and then give me a call so we can talk about step two.

Is there anything you can think of you want to change right off the bat? And if you’re buying, what’s your must-have in a home?
