First Impression is Everything

No Comments

This one is going to go out to the agents and home owners who are in the market of selling their home. When you are showing your house to potential buyers, the first impression is crucial in any sale and leaving a lasting one is one of the most important things that you can do to close a sale. After you have gone through the proper means of having a professional home inspector do his job and everything on the inside checks out, you can then start to worry about how your home and property actually appears to buyers.

Make it Stand Out

worthI don’t think I need to spend much time talking about making the actual home of any sale look beautiful and presentable to buyers, but the property that your home is on can be just as telling or important. We mentioned earlier what kind of value having a well kept property can have and would like to spend a little more time discussing it.

If you own a home and ever plan on selling, regular upkeep and maintenance of your lawn and property can add thousands of dollars to the actual value VS price of your home. If you have the means and resources to do so, hiring professional landscaping or tree services every once in a while can go a long way. A good example of a reputable company that a number of agents here at Think Outside the Box Solutions use for both our business and our homes is at Kelley Tree Service.  Be careful though; because damage to your property can cost you thousands of dollars in either damages, or potential value when you decide to sell. Only hire arborists with years of experience to do any real work on your home to ensure that value will only increase.

When trying to genuinely increase the overall value of your home or property, there is a wide variety of landscaping work that you can do which can go a long way.

Think outside the box when you are buying or selling your home, it’s the little things like this that can separate you from the pack.

Don’t Hurt Yourself

No Comments

While looking over our last post, I think a very important theme to keep and take from it and everything else we talk about here at Think Outside the Box Solutions is that not upholding your honesty and integrity will only severely hurt you and your name in the long run.

soldShort Term Goals

What I have seen time and time again as an agent is that many people who are new to the industry try and make a sale as quick as possible and move on to the next sale right away. While this may bring you success, you better believe it will only be short term success. You need to rely on your clients to spread your good name around and not have it tarnished in any way.

Remember that this isn’t a race and that slow and steady is always better than a dash to the finish. You want to have this as a career, right? Well no one gets rich quick and the only way to maximize your success potential is to make sure that you have a good name in the business and that no one can find anything bad to say about you.

Think Outside the Box and keep your eye on the prize! Don’t let the allure of a quick sale hurt you in the future.
