Tips for Selling Your Manhattan Home

Did you know that within 15 seconds a buyer has already developed an opinion of your property? This is why establishing the right first impression is critical to achieving a successful sale.

Decide on what types of renovations and staging you would like to complete on your home. Remove and repair all signs of damage and other deterioration, e.g. holes and cracks in ceilings and walls. Restore hardware and bathroom/lighting fixtures as needed.

Staging Matters -  Main Rule of Apartment Staging:

Remember, the key to staging a home is to “Neutralize” the environment. You want it to be free of personal photos, waste cans, tissues, cosmetics etc.  

The potential buyer should walk in and feel as if it is a model home, devoid of clutter. When they leave they should wonder whether anyone lives in the apartment.

For showings: Owners should leave while your home is being shown so that buyers will feel more comfortable to move around and discuss your property with the real estate professional.

    Wow! Buyers form an opinion within 15 seconds of seeing your place? That's actually really important with how you try to make the best impression for them with trying to sell the place. I've noticed that when you walk in the door, you really need to be "wowed" really quickly to form a good impression. I mean, it's much more difficult for you to change that impression with other rooms of the house when you've already formed that opinion in those short seconds. What are some ways a real estate agent can help you to have a good impression as a buyer?
