I have never carried a stopwatch with me when I show homes but maybe I should if indeed

"BUYERS DECIDE WITHIN 8 SECONDS WHETHER THEY ARE INTERESTED IN YOUR HOME."

I don't know the exact measured time but I know they decide quickly.  There is not much time to impress buyers or their agents.

Sure staging, cleanliness, de-cluttering, de-personalizing and other items are important but sellers need to remembr this key point...

If the curb appeal does not look inviting it may just be setting the wrong tone for the grand entrance.

Having to overcome the a negative street appearance is a hurdle sellers should not have to jump over.

Prepare well early on in the process and sit back!

joliet il remax realtorI am a huge fan of Real Estate Agent and Mogul Barbara Corcoran. Barbara is a Real Estate Contributor on NBC's Today show and the wonderful addition to ABC's Shark Tank. Per Barbara:

"BUYERS DECIDE WITHIN 8 SECONDS WHETHER THEY ARE INTERESTED IN YOUR HOME."

I'm not surprised by this at all. It's the first impression when walking in and hearing "Wow, this is cute" or "Ugh, what is that smell?" pretty much sums of the next few minutes of the tour of that home.

I always tell my buyers that they will know when they walk in if this is their home or not. If they aren't feeling it within the first 10 seconds, let's move on. They never believe me... AT FIRST. But usually by the 4th house they agree that they know pretty much immediately if they are interested or not when walking in the door.

So buyers pretty much know. Sellers - remember that! That first impression (or at least the first 8 seconds) can decide whether the buyer is interested in your home!
