You're placing your home on the
market and you've hired a real es-
tate agent to manage the sale.
You've taken the right first step,
but don't stop now. Even the best
of homes may not sell quickly
without the owner helping to create
a good impression for potential
buyers. The first impression is a
Homeowners play an important
role in the sale of their home," ac-
cording to Jerry King, president of
the K.M. Board of Realtors. "A
clean, uncluttered home in good re-
pair will make a positive impres-
sion on the buyer," he added. The
following suggestions are recom-
mended by the K.M. Board of
Realtors to prepare your home so it
can be shown at its best. Your real
estate agent will assist you in
surveying your home to identify
aspects that need attention.
Examine the exterior and
grounds of your home with an un-
biased eye for "curb appeal," that
is, the attractiveness of your home
as viewed from the street. Consider
a fresh coat of paint for the outside.
Clean, sealed gutters and down-
spouts and a trimmed lawn clear of
debris contributes to a better look-
ing home and a positive first im-
pression. Is your garage or carport
clean and uncluttered?
A tidy front entrance can en-
hance the effect. Polishing the door
brass, cleaning storm windows and
screens and repainting wood trim
or a rusty mailbox can help sway a
decision to buy. If appropriate,
tactfully suggest that your neigh-
bors tidy their outside areas as
well. Prospective buyers include

the appearance of the entire neigh-
borhood in their overall judgement.
Moving to the inside of your
home, make the same unbiased ex-
amination on a room by room ba-
sis. Painting inside walls could pay
dividends far beyond the time, ef-
fort and expense involved.
Consider having soiled carpets
cleaned. Not only will they look
better, but they will have a fresh
scent as well, adding to the overall
appeal of the room. Tend to the lit-
tle things—squeaky door hinges,
loose cabinet knobs, leaky faucets
and so forth,
A gleaming kitchen will defi-
nitely work in your favor. The
kitchen is a part of the home where
people do a lot of living, and
prospects a lot of looking. Make
sure the kitchen smells fresh, A
freshly baked batch of cookies
coming out the oven or a pot of
spiced tea on the stove will help
add that "at home" feeling buyers
are looking for.
Your bathroom also will undergo
close scrutiny. Make sure it's spot-
less, with tiles scrubbed and grout-
ed, faucets polished and fixtures
cleaned. Replace your shower cur-
tain if it shows signs of soap film
or mold. Ali toiletries and
medicines should be stored neatly
in drawers or chests. Remember, if
your bathroom is small, clutter will
make it look even smaller.
In general, make your home as
light and airy as possible. Freshly
washed windows with the drapes
drawn back to let in the light will
provide a bright cheery look as
well as make rooms appear more
spacious. Use bright lights in areas

that do not have much natural light,
such as the basement or attic.
Clean out accumulated items from
closets, cabinets and counters.
Simplicity and a clean uncluttered
look contributes to an environment
conducive to a sale.
Accent the positive areas of your
home. If you have finished hard-
wood floors, make sure they are
dustfree and polished. Organize
large closets or cabinets to accentu-
ate available storage space. Built-in
features such as bookshelves or
knick-knack space should be ar-
ranged creatively to illustrate the
usefulness of the space as well as
the decorating possibilities.
Finally, if a major fault exists
that you don't intend to correct, you
or your salesperson must call it to
the attention of the prospective
buyer. Discuss the problem ahead
of time with your sales agent. If the
prospective buyer likes everything
else, this need not be a serious
During the showing, be mindful
of limiting the number of family
members present so the buyer
won't feel like an intruder.
Selling your home is a complex
transaction that takes time, effort
and expertise. Your real estate
salesperson should know the local
market so that only serious, quali-
fied buyers are shown your home.
Your assistance in presenting your
home is its best possible light,
however, will greatly add to its sal-
ability. For additional suggestions
on making your home more attrac-
tive to buyers, contact a member of
the K.M. Board of Realtors.
