First Impressions

by Shayla on Wednesday April 16, 2014

While we’ve always been told not to judge a book by its cover, there is certainly something to be said for first impressions when it comes to showing your home. That’s why, especially in this busy open house real estate season, it pays to call in your real estate sales representative to give you a fresh perspective on how your home presents.

REALTORS® understand the power of first impression appeal and have tje benefit of experience when it comes to sharing with you what works when it comes to preparing your home for sale. For example, your kitchen and bathroom can be deal makers - or breakers. When deciding if its worth renovating before you sell, consider the Appraisal Institute of Canada’s findings that, depending on the extent of the renovations, homeowners can often recoup 75 to 100% of bathroom and kitchen renovations costs when it comes time to sell their home.

Be aware that the desirability and resale value of a particular remodeling project can vary by region. Before undertaking a remodeling project, please call to discuss your plans, and ask what projects might provide the most return upon resale.

Remember, we REALTORS® have a unique understanding of local markets, home features and buyer preferences and can give you good insight into all factors that affect a home’s value. These factors can include not only the physical features of your house, but also it’s location, condition of surrounding properties and regional economic climate.
