  1. Keep your “Good as Gold” tenants as long as possible ~this saves you move out costs.
  2. Look to purchase reasonably sized properties~ this means less maintenance costs.
  3. Stick with one contractor for repairs~they may offer big discounts on their services.
  4. Try your best NOT to use property managers~a waste of money.
  5. Personally inspect your property at least 2x a year.

Selling Your House – How to Add Curb Appeal

Home Selling Tips From Boise Realtor, Cristina Pescaru

It’s the end of another year, and we are still enjoying a seller’s market in our area (Boise, Idaho and the Treasure Valley).  If you are on the fence regarding selling, maybe you should give it serious consideration. There are advantages to listing this time of year, the major one being that competition is very limited.

Some tips for preparing your house for sale:

  • Trim bushes and branches so they don’t block windows or architectural details.
  • Set a pot of bright flowers (or a small evergreen in winter) on your porch or front walkway.
  • Install new, matching locks and knobs on your front door.
  • Repair any cracks or holes in the driveway, and clean oil spots with degreaser and a steel brush.
  • Edge the grass around walkways and trees.
  • Stow your garden tools and hoses out of sight, and clear kids’ toys from the lawn.
  • Buy a new mailbox.
  • Upgrade your outdoor lighting.
  • Purchase a new doormat for outside your front door.
  • Clean your windows, inside and out.
  • Polish or replace your house numbers.
  • Mow your lawn. Also, turning on the sprinklers for 30 minutes before the showing will make
    the whole yard sparkle.
  • In Winter, clear the snow and ice from the walks.

Now that your house is showroom ready, give me a call to start the process.
