Prepare your home for a sale...


1. Disassociate Yourself With Your Home.
-Say to yourself, "This home now belongs to the perfect buyer, let's make sure they are please" (I changed it)
-Make the mental decision to "let go" of your emotions and focus on the fact that soon this house will no longer be yours.
-Picture yourself handing over the keys and envelopes containing appliance warranties to the new owners!
-Say goodbye to every room. (This one is funny.)
-Don't look backwards -- look toward the future.

10. Check Curb Appeal.
-If a buyer won't get out of her agent's car because she doesn't like the exterior of your home, you'll never get      her inside.
-Keep the sidewalks cleared.
-Mow the lawn.
-Paint faded window trim.
-Plant yellow flowers or group flower pots together. Yellow evokes a buying emotion. Marigolds are inexpensive.
-Trim your bushes.
-Make sure visitors can clearly read your house number.
