Keep in mind that you have 1 opportunity to make a good first impression. Here are some simple steps that will help you to prepare.
Curb Appeal: Put away items that detract from your home, items such as garden hoses, trash cans, etc. make sure the exterior of the home is clean and in good condition. Touch up your front door if necessary. Add a welcome mat and a wreath on the front door. Ensure that your house number is legible and easy to find. Keep trees, bushes and lawn cut. Park in your garage to prevent blocking the view of your home.
Clean out your home. Remove clutter from your home and depersonalize (remove family photos). Put away toothbrushes, make-up, jewelry and medications.
Stage your home. You can hire a professional that can come in and re-arrange and remove furnishings that are not necessary. Furniture correctly arranged visually enlarge your space.
Clean your home. Sometimes it is easier to hire a professional to come in and do a deep clean of your home. make sure your home smells fresh.
Leave your home for showings! This is really important as a buyer and their agent should be able to go through your home and openly discuss how your home meets the buyer's needs. If the buyer has questions they will make sure to address these with your agent.
Some things we cannot control and may need to overcompensate in one or more areas to offset a competitive disadvantage in another.

The factors that go into purchasing a home are as varied and dive
"I am writing to express my pleasure with real estate agent Kevin Rodgers who represented me in my recent purchase of a single-family home in Mesa, Arizona.
Kevin guided me through the entire process, from proper location, to searching for houses, to making the offer, and closing the deal. I credit Kevin with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience.
This is my fourth purchase of property, and never had I had such a pleasurable experience. Kevin is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. I never could have gotten my home without him.
Kevin even helped me after closing by opening my house for movers, as I was detained at work. This is an example of Kevin's character and willingness to help his client. Other agents may say they "go the extra mile" but he did for me.
To reiterate, I am nothing but pleased with Kevin and his expertise and I recommend him to everyone.
