Selling Your Rockwall Home | Seller Tip | Value Your Home | Rockwall County Tx.

Selling your Rockwall County Home should be a well thought out plan to show your home to the very best advantage.   Bathrooms are always one of the major concerns to buyers when looking at homes.  One way to do this is to do a major bathroom update, but it can also be done by making the most of what you already have.

  • Remove ALL clutter
  • Organize drawers and cabinets
  • Organize the closets - stage for dramatic surprise
  • Replace dim light bulbs with bright bulbs
  • Open window treatments to let in natural light
  • Accessorize- use a splash of color
  • Display towels - buy new if necessary
  • Buy a big fluffy rug to cover an ordinary floor
  • CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN - every thing must be sparkling clean
  • Paint if necessary
  • Replace hardware - an affordable fix

Ask your Realtor to suggest affordable staging options.  Remember "less is more" when it comes to staging any room.   Also remember that spending a "little time & money" may result in getting an acceptable contract.  

Home buyers love bathrooms!  Here is a fun thing to on the link below for an awesome treat.  You will see some of the most awesome bathrooms in the world in multi-million dollar homes!  This is just for fun and average folks can not do this, but what you can do is to show off your bathrooms to the best advantage.

Barbara: You make a great don't need to spend big $$$ to make a big impact on a room.  Sometimes it's the simple "fixes" alone that can get the job done.

Loved your extravagant bathrooms in the multi gazillion dollar homes. Would like to market and sell a couple of those listings.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Hi Barbara.  Also have them trim the exterior shrubs and mow the lawn regularly.

Anita - it is true, simple inexpensive fixes can do wonders for the presentation of a home.  

Margaret - yes, give me just one to market!  What fun that would be! :)

Lisa - the most important word IS clean, then organize.

Conrad - I agree 100% but this post was about bathrooms.  That is another upcoming post regarding exterior.  :)

Glenn - I have had sellers who try to do everything right, including staging for that first impression and it DOES make a big difference in getting it sold.

 Barbara Jo - same here!  Those that "get it" are richly rewarded in the results they get, but those who do not "get it" often leave money on the table or end up not getting it sold.

I am not much of a bath person but I may change my stance if I had one of those tubs or the view in some cases!
