It is important to make people feel warm and welcome and creating that perfect first impression is key to achieving your selling goals! With more and more marketing material becoming accessible for buyers online, many potential buyers have already judged a home before they even step foot on the property. Thats why we cannot emphasize enough how important it is to have the house in picture-perfect condition for our bookings as this ultimately translates to a potential buyers first impression.
