    What not to do when preparing your home for sale

    selling real estateHere are a few of the newest Paris911 and REMAX Relocation resources that will assist you on your Relocation Endeavor.

    There are many curb appeal “don’ts” when selling a home. The entire premise behind improving the curb appeal of your home is to draw potential buyers to your home, to have it set attractively in its surroundings and to have your home present itself with its best “foot” forward. To do so it is as important to pay attention to the “don’ts” as it is the “dos”.

    One of the most important things to remember is, don’t make your home stick out from its environment. If all the homes on your street are simple in their elegance don’t make your home look like an ornate palace.

    Don’t choose a color of paint for your home or trim that will make it stand out like a sore thumb. If you are in a neighborhood of Victorian homes, painted with a variety of colors, shades, and hues, that is one thing, but in a neighborhood of white and beige do not paint your house a bright plum color. Understated is always better.

    Don’t ignore the clutter. Just like preparing the inside of your home by de-cluttering and organizing, the exterior of your home must be de-cluttered. Organize your garden tools, remove non-essential items and neaten up your outdoor living spaces.

    These are but a few of the “don’ts” for enhancing your home’s curb appeal. A first impression is instrumental in luring buyers in your front door!

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.
