Tips For Sellers

The key to selling your home quickly and at the right price is in preparing it appropriately. Here are some tips to help you get started.

  • Give home a thorough cleaning
  • Oil door hinges, tighten door knobs
  • Have carpets professionally cleaned, or replaced if damaged
  • Repair dripping faucets and leaky toilets
  • Replace all burned out light bulbs
  • Repair defective light switch
  • Get rid of clutter both inside and out
  • Cut and edge grass
  • Trim hedges and weed gardens
  • Paint, fix or wash railings, steps, storm windows, screens and doors
  • Cleanout the gutters
  • Wash the windows
  • Tidy up the garage
  • Paint, wash and fix garage doors and windows


Here are some helpful tips for showing your home.

  • Keep pets out of the house. Either take them with you or keep them penned in the yard or garage.
  • Put away items in the yard like garden tools, bicycles and toys.
  • Make sure your home is well lit.
  • Remove clutter from tables and shelves. Less clutter creates the illusion of a larger space.
  • Keep money, prescription drugs, and other valuables, out of view.
  • Add a ground up lemon to the garbage disposal to give the kitchen a fresh smell.
  • Open shades and curtains to let in light.
  • Light a fire in the fireplace to create a comfortable ambiance.
  • Keep radios and TVs off, or on a low volume
"I have had the pleasure of working with John Joynt in the past year and have been totally satisfied with all his efforts. John took over all my concerns and insured that everything was done properly, in a timely fashion and at the best cost for me. He presented me with comparisons, proposals and made me more confident about what I was doing. John protected me when there was a questionable practice by another realtor, thoroughly represented my interests while working with other clients, and sold my office quickly and at a price I was satisfied with."
