10 Ways to Not Sell Your House
When it comes to selling a home, these unforgivable no-no's top the charts. Use this checklist to make sure you won't lose potential buyers on account of an unkempt yard or those dirty dishes.
Leave the Lawn
There's no sense in fixing up the yard. After all, it’s the house they’re coming to see!
Or… See your yard as an extension of the house and give it a thorough once-over. Trim unruly bushes, pull weeds, spread fresh mulch, and keep it mowed. Your yard sets the expectations of the buyer before they’ve even stepped in your house.
Also, consider installing attractive outdoor lighting. It goes a long way (for a little investment) toward creating a dramatic mood. And if you have a dog, go on a hunt for “land mines” and clean them up.
