Don't send buyers running...

For buyers seeing homes on the market, sometimes they can all run together. What makes them stand out in a bad way would be a home with oh my gosh pink or other color that is not appealing to a huge percentage of the population.

Curb appeal is super important.  The yard should be neat and have some colorful flowering plants.  Make sure that any bees nests are removed.  There's nothing like being chased by bees when trying to see a home. 

If you want someone to buy your beautiful home, and you have a wild color on the walls, please do yourself a favor and repaint with a neutral color, make sure your home smells good, is clean.  It's so important to de-clutter your house before listing it for sale; if it looks like you don't have room for everything, the potential buyers will believe that the house just doesn't have enough storage.

Another tip - if you have loud barking dogs in the yard or in your home, you may be chasing buyers away also. Some of my buyers have a real fear of dogs, or are allergic. Two more smelly items -- cat boxes and cigarette smells -- not a good idea. These also have sent buyers running away from homes, immediately. 

Just being honest, and giving you a few tips to get that home sold or rented. Please price it well so that it shown. Homes priced too high for the market don't get shown - in fact they actually help sell the homes around it.
