We have concentrated on the outside of your Escondido home and now it is time to go inside and make some changes. Try to look at your Escondido property through the eyes of a potential buyer. Remember, “People buy what they see and not what will be.” Most of the suggestions that follow will help improve any kind of Escondido real estate. Most of these ideas apply to all room in the house.

  • The first thing you probably should notice is the carpet.  Is it clean, is it a good current color, is in worn or in good shape?   I know you are thinking that the Escondido buyer can buy new carpet when they move in, but don’t count on it.  Remember the slogan above and do what needs to be done.  New carpet that updates and cleans up your Escondido home can easily pay for itself.
  • The next large thing your buyers may notice is the walls.  Consider getting rid of any “strong” colors.  Neutralize your Escondido house.  Remember you want the buyer to think of it as their potential home.  Clean all walls where necessary, patch holes, and repaint if needed.  Escondido real estate with new carpet and paint seldom stays on the market for long.  It also lets you get the most money for you Escondido home.
  • Remember our saying, “Cleanliness is next to Godliness?”  That goes double when marketing your home.   Give every room in the house a thorough deep cleaning.  Some buyers need the home move in ready.
  • Almost forgot the most important thing, “Escondido homes that smell are Escondido homes that don’t sell.”  You may have grow a custom to the pet smells in your home, but the potential Escondido buyer will notice them right away.  How do you know if you have pet smells?  You could also ask a friend, neighbor, or your Escondido Realtor if they smell anything.  Problem with this is that people trying to be polite and nice don’t always give you the straight scoop.  Here is the rule.  If you have a dog or cat, you have smells.
