It's 2010 - Let's Get organized & Sell That House!
As a full time, consistent top producing real estate agent specializing in Woodstock, Hurley, Kingston, Stone Ridge, Saugerties, or anywhere in Ulster County, there's one thing I can say that you should keep in mind.... A clean, organized, fresh smelling home means dollar signs in the New Year.
In our current market, buyers have so much to choose from that your house must stand out. Most buyers will give a home the thumbs up, or down within the first few minutes , sometimes even seconds during a showing. Do they see clutter before they even hit the front door? Do they smell a dog or a couple of cats? Is the litter box in view? Is it clean?
When a seller says the home is in "as is" condition, that's fine, as long as they expect an "as is price". Would you go to trade your car in with muddy floor mats & cigarettes overflowing out of the ash tray? Probably not, if you wanted the most bang for your buck. There are so many small, inexpensive, and quick things you can do to improve the appearance & saleabilty of your home.
