Eagle
Eagle Idaho is a desireable, upscale community nestled along the base of the Boise foothills. Eagle offers high-end, quality-crafted homes, fine dining, boutique shopping and a friendly community. The Boise river meanders through Eagle and you'll often find folks walking the greenbelt or enjoying a peaceful picnic along the banks. Eagle offers convenient access to the entire Treasure Valley and provides direct routes to northern ski areas, foothills hiking, river rafting and other fun Idaho outdoor activities. If you prefer newer construction homes in an upscale market then Eagle is the place for you. Pictured above is Rembrandt’s Coffee House in Eagle’s quaint downtown area.
The North End
North Boise is one of the most sought after communities in the Boise area. Affectionately referred to as The North End, here you will find classic architecture and character in the turn of the century and early 1900's era homes. Many homes in The North End have been fully restored to their original condition with a complementary touch of modern conveniences. If you enjoy tree-lined streets, patio-dining at corner restaurants and quiet and peaceful neighborhoods then be certain to see a few Boise homes in this area during your visit. Pictured above is Boise’s historic Harrison Boulevard which runs from Boise’s thriving downtown through the heart of The North End.

So, you have been considering putting your home up for sale. What do you need to do to prep your home to sell? How do you compete in today’s market by attracting home buyers without breaking your budget? Here are some tips to put a little money and time into your home that will go a long way:

(1) Make the exterior of your home clean and inviting. First impressions mean EVERYTHING! A neglected exterior makes the buyer think you have probably neglected interior maintenance as well. Clean the gutters, pressure wash the siding, trim overgrown bushes, mow the lawn, rake leaves, pull weeds, and plant colorful flowers.

(2) Tone down your paint colors. You may love the liveliness of the tangerine orange in the living room but it may turn off a perspective buyer. Paint your walls a neutral color that will appeal to a wide range of people.

(3) Make the front entry an attractive and inviting part of your home. Get a new door mat, paint the front door, add a plant or flowers, remove cobwebs, and clean leaves and debris. Make a great impression on the home buyer, even before they open that door.

(4) Clean the baseboards, door jams, and light switch plates. Wipe fingerprints and little marks off the walls. Eraser sponges are your best friend here! Do paint touchups where marks won’t come off. Make everything look clean and fresh.

(5) Wash windows and screens and replace heavy curtains with sheer curtains. Let that natural light flow more fully through your windows.

(6) Replace existing bulbs with higher wattage bulbs in key areas. Replace burned out bulbs. Help your rooms seem brighter.

(7) Eliminate bad odors. Remove the cat litter box and empty the trashes. Spray a light air freshener, light a candle, or put out fresh flowers. Consider baking cookies before a showing so the home permeates homemade goodness.

(8) Make your kitchen shine! The kitchen is a key component in the sale of a home. Scrub the stove and oven. Wipe down the fingerprints on your appliances. Clear off counter-tops: get that toaster, mixer, or coffee machine under the counter. Remove all items from the exterior of the refrigerator doors.

(9) Let the features of your home stand out and not your personal interests. Pack away most of your small decorative items. Keep shelves clear and clean. In the same spirit, remove too many pictures of you or your loved ones. Let the buyer envision the home as their own.

(10) Get rid of clutter! Let the home buyer see the real size of the rooms by clearing out everything but a few furniture items and one or two pieces of simple decor. Store out-of-season clothing to make closets seem roomier. Clean the garage and consider relocating large items and boxes to a rented storage space.

(11) Make minor repairs, as needed. Fix those sticky doors, lose door handles, torn screens, cracked caulking, etc. Show your pride of ownership by doing the small things.

It may take several weeks to transform your home into an open, clean, and inviting space that will attract perspective buyers. Consider inviting family or loved ones to pitch in or take the opportunity to shop around for an affordable house-cleaning crew. Applying these tips in prepping your home to sell will require a little extra time and money, but it will be well worth the investment!
