The buyer is a guest in your home, you want the buyer to imagine owning the home. You don't want to make
the buyer feel like an intruder.
Now it's time to get your home ready for the spotlight. Start with a good cleaning, then eliminate any clutter,
add a fresh coat of paint and tidy up the yard. Talk to your real estate agent about other tips that can help
boost a home's curb appeal and impress potential buyers once they're in the door. One way to make a home
more attractive is to purchase a Home Protection Plan. This insurance protects you, the seller, from paying
repair or replacement costs of major items during the listing period. It also protects the buyer during their first
year of homeownership.

Play Up the Visual
Open all the window coverings to let in light. Keep blinds partially closed that otherwise show undesirable
outdoor scenery.  Turn on every light in the house, including appliance lights and closet lights. Brighten dark
rooms with few windows by placing spot lights on the floor behind furniture.
