“Secrets” To Selling Real Estate, West Palm Beach

West-Palm-beach-aerial-photYou’ve taken the plunge, and decided to add your home to our ever-changing list of West Palm Beach homes for sale — congratulations! Finding a good real estate team is the first and most important step on your journey to sell real estate. West Palm Beach has its own unique market; we’ve seen a lot of houses move quickly and a lot sit for a long time. Here are a couple of our “secret” tricks to help you put your best foot forward and make your property stand out among homes for sale in West Palm Beach.

Follow your nose.

We joke that the way to a buyer’s heart it through their stomach, and we’re not above putting out a dish of small chocolates next to our business cards for potential buyers to salve their sweet tooth. But you can be even more subtle: before a showing is a great time to bake cookies! The smell of freshly baked cookies puts a smile on anyone’s face, and will help your home be remembered. Secret #2,433: a few drops of vanilla extract in a cup of water gently boiled on the stove has the same effect, with fewer calories.

Let there be light!

Your home has never been tidier, your walls never cleaner, your windows never more sparkling: time to show it all off by turning on lights, opening all the doors and throwing open the blinds and curtains to let all the light in!

Put Away The Trophies.

Homebuyers want to imagine themselves living in their new home, not your old one. This means any memorabilia you’ve been keeping around needs to go into a box or closet before the showing — let your potential buyer imagine building their own memories!
