Your Key to Real Estate Success in Kelowna

  • Cleanliness Is Key

Put your homes best foot forward by keeping things clean, clutter-free and tidy.  This applies to both indoor and outdoor spaces.  Buyers are willing to pay more money when they can see a home has been taken care of.

  • Regular Maintenance and Upkeep

Take care of the little things like chipped paint on window frames or scuffs on the floor.  Staying on top of small repairs and touch-ups will give your home a more polished appearance and ensures potential buyers won’t be distracted by cosmetic imperfections.

  • Appeal To All Senses

Smell is an underrated selling tool! People connect emotionally to pleasant scents.  A subtle refreshing or comforting scent can go a long way in making your home memorable to potential buyers but be sure not to overdo it!

  • De-Personalize

It helps immensely to allow potential buyers to see your house as their potential future home.  To help them envision themselves there, remove as many personal effects as possible like family photos, memorabilia, decorations, collections and keepsakes.

  • First Impressions Count

Keep curb appeal in mind when selling your Kelowna home.  Think about the first time a buyer will see your home, whether it is at an open house or while driving by and noticing your For Sale sign.  Ensure you home looks tidy, welcoming and well kept.

  • Great Photos Matter

Having professional quality photos of your Kelowna house For Sale will ensure your property grabs the attention of potential buyers shopping the real estate market.  High Quality HD images, 3D Mapping and Virtual Tours of your home are some of the many services I offer my clients to ensure your listing gets noticed!
