Subject: How To Stage Your Home

Hello NAME,

Are you considering putting your house up for sale, but not sure where to start? Afraid it will take too long to sell, or that you won’t get the price you want?

An easy place to start is staging your home. In other words, setting the scene for immediate buyer interest in your property.

To be effective, you need to look at both the outside and the inside of your home. To start, here are some tips to get you started with the inside:

1. De-clutter. This is one of the most important things you can do. Pack up everything you don’t need and store the boxes out of sight in the garage (or consider temporarily renting a small storage locker).

2. Organize your closets – put similar colors together, pants together, skirts together, shirts together etc. Why? Because it will make the closets look bigger. (Really.) An organized closet appears bigger, and you want your closets to look as spacious as possible.

3. Make your home look like a model. You want to de-personalize as much as possible, so potential buyers can imagine themselves and their own belongings occupying the space in your house. Clear off kitchen counters as much as possible. Stash all those appliances you don’t use and put miscellaneous small clutter in a few attractive baskets or boxes.

And the biggest tip of all? Imagine yourself as a potential buyer looking at your property for the very first time. What impressions are you getting? Would you buy your house? What would you like to see changed before you put an offer on your house?

Proper staging helps you sell your house in a shorter time and at the price you want. Feel free to reply to this email with any questions about selling your home!

Warmly,

Subject: A Few Quick Ways to Increase Curb Appeal

Hello NAME,

Whether you are preparing your house to sell or simply want to make a good first impression, curb appeal is important.

There are a few simple steps you can take to add curb appeal to your home without spending a lot of money.

1. The Front Door: It is the entry to your home so don’t neglect it. Get creative with your front door by adding a splash of color. Try a fresh coat of paint or a bold and colorful new door mat.

2. Make a Statement with Some Flowers: Keep things symmetrical by adding a flower pot to each side of the entrance. Visit your local nursery and ask for advice on the best design ideas for your flower pots. Get something with more height for the middle and then place lower annuals such as wave petunias around the edges so the flowers spill over the edges of the pots.

3. A Good Clean Rinse: Use a pressure washer to clean your driveway and walkways. Then clean your windows inside out to let the sun shine in.

4. Take Care of Your Lawn: Your lawn has a huge impact when it comes to the over-all curb appeal of your house. Make sure to keep your lawn manicured and green. For expert advice on caring for your lawn visit the national Association of Landscape Professionals’ website at https://www.loveyourlandscape.org/.

5. Upgrade Your Lighting: Visit your local hardware store to select lighting that better fits the style and size of your home.

With these budget-friendly changes you will see your home’s curb appeal drastically increase.

Subject: 5 credit score mistakes to watch out for!

Hello NAME,

If you are like most Americans, you are concerned about maintaining a high credit score.

If you are planning to buy real estate in the near future, it’s a good idea to begin your process early by meeting with a lender and having them run your credit, just in case there are items that need to be cleaned up before you begin your property search.

If a real estate purchase is not in your future it still pays to be vigilant about protecting your score.

Here are 5 quick credit mistakes to watch out for!

Mistake #1: Making late payments. Thirty-day late payments can drop your credit score by 60-100 points!

Mistake #2: Opening store accounts to save on store purchases. Doing so means a hard inquiry, which can pull 5 or more points off your score.

Mistake #3: Closing the wrong accounts. Hold on to the cards that you’ve had the longest.

Mistake #4: Not having enough credit. Insufficient credit shows a lack of a track record and suggests you may not be able to handle more credit.

Mistake #5: Carrying high balances on your cards. High balances show that your debt ratio is too high.

If you have additional questions and need a connection to a quality lender or professionals that can advise you on how to raise your credit, reply to this email and I would be happy to help.

Warmly,
XXXXXXXX
