Thorough and Objective Home Evaluation

The Dollars are in the Details

The Archibald Group knows that the dollars are in the details. When your home sparkles from curb to ceiling, you will receive the best offers in the shortest time. We help you objectively evaluate your home for marketability. We go into detail how you can showcase good features, enhance certain characteristics, and generally improve the show condition of your home. We will walk through your home with you, and discuss ways to make it more appealing to a larger buyer group.
The more buyers that see it, the quicker your home will sell. The better it looks, the higher their offer.

Every buyer who sees your home will be comparing it to the competition in your area. How your home compares is critical to how soon you sell it and at what price. We are going to work with you in several areas:

  • Interior Features and Characteristics – While the floor plan or the number of bedrooms and bathrooms is not something you can change to compete better with other homes, you can enhance their appeal. Here is a list of some of the things we review with you:
    • Carpets/Flooring
    • Kitchen Fixtures
    • Cabinet and Door Fixtures
    • Wall Color and Condition
    • Appliances
    • Ceiling Fixtures
    • Bathroom Fixtures
  • Exterior – Curb appeal really does matter. When a prospective buyer first drives up to the front of your home, they are going to get a first impression. It is very important that it is a good one. It has been our experience that some buyers will ask to leave without ever stepping across the threshold if they do not like the curb appeal. From this experience, we know what they did and did not like about the curb appeal. We will help you to evaluate details like landscaping, exterior paint and overall appeal. Here is an area in which small expenditures can yield big results.
  • Condition – Minor repairs can make a major difference. Many buyers get the impression that deferred maintenance on items they can see means there could be bigger problems with deferred maintenance on items they can not see. We have seen it frequently -- they will either cross your home off their list, or they will give you a discount offer, assuming they have many repairs to do. From broken window pane seals to marked walls or doors, we will let you know what we believe is important to repair, and make suggestions.

Once your home is in show condition, we will hire professional photographers and videographers to create a beautiful photo gallery for online and print marketing.
