Selling your home? Five Simple Tips to make sure it shows in its best light

Atlanta Real Estate - Selling your Atlanta Home

With all the competition in the Intown Atlanta real estate market (or any real estate market! ) it is so selling your home in Atlanta GAimportant to present your home in its 'best light'.  To follow are five inexpensive ideas that will help your home look light, bright and airy...

1)  Let the sun shine in -- Open all the curtains and window shades.  Add a small lamp or uplight to dark corners.  If you have dark curtains, consider replacing with white sheer curtains.

2)  Increase your wattage -- Replace your 40W or 60W lightbulbs with 100W bulbs to brighten things up and make the room feel larger.  ** Please be sure that your lamp can handle the higher watt bulb.

3)  Reflect the light -- Add mirrors to walls that are across from a window.  The mirror will pick up the light streaming in from the window and trust me, it really makes a difference.

4)  Don't block the light -- Clean your windows inside and out.  Also, remove any excess furniture from your rooms -- especially furniture that blocks all or part of a window.

5)  Turn it on -- In the evenings, turn on all of the lights in the front of your home so when people drive by, they will see that it looks warm and inviting.  Also, when someone is coming to view your home, turn on EVERY light in your home... even if it is 10:00 am!

Kerry, I sounds as simple as let your light shine. Little things that are not always attended to.

Great pointers!  It makes such a difference!  Some of my clinets are a little jumpy and never open their window coverings.  It looks so uninviting from the outide of the house.

I wish we had more sunny days in winter to be able to photograph houses too!
