Preparing Your Home For Showing

 

First impressions count with buyers. You don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression, so a small investment in time and money can give your house the advantage over competing homes in your neighborhood when it comes time for your sales representative to show it to a prospective buyer.

 

Here are some suggestions for preparing your home for showing.

Tighten door knobs, cupboard latches

"The Gia Team were very understanding of our needs and requirements. They went out of their way to be available as well as connecting us with multiple city resources for the home as well as family. The Gia Team were recommended to us by a friend and in the first meeting they were able to understand our needs, being very knowledgeable about the City and neighbourhoods. We would absolutely recommend The Gia Lucchetta Team!"
