Renting or Selling Property?

The following will give you some general tips on renting or selling property in Albuquerque or Rio Rancho. Three key items will be discussed that will make or break that very important first impression.

First, you only have a few seconds to show off your curb appeal. Folks who are looking for a home will look at several properties before they make a decision to move. If someone pulls up to your property and it looks unkempt with weeds, trim that needs to be painted, the stucco is in rough shape and so on, they might just drive on by. I have done this myself. If the outside looks bad then I will assume the inside is just as bad or worse. It is critical to take the time and effort to make sure the outside will entice those looking to go inside to see what the home has to offer.

Second, the inside of the home needs to be in good repair, clean and painted nicely. To get the most out of your investment these items are crucial. There are a lot of homes on the market and you want to set yours apart from the rest. Think like a buyer or renter when you look at the types of improvements you will need to make. If you are selling your home while living there, thin out the clutter in each room. Having to much on the walls and in the rooms will make the rooms look smaller.

The last item is price. Remember when renting or selling property in Albuquerque, you have to be competitive with other properties around yours. People who are renting or buying do their research. The vast majority will do their research online and look at multiple homes in the area they desire before they even contact a Property Manager or Realtor®.
