Roslindale has been in the news a lot lately as a neighborhood with a "hot" real estate market. RVMS sat down with Roslindale resident Linda Burnett, Realtor, Keller Williams Boston, to talk shop. Armed with nearly three decades of experience, Linda offers three tips to keep in mind when preparing to sell your home. 
 
1.  If you're comfortable in your home while it's on the market, it's not showing properly.

2.  Buyers are happy to pay tens of thousands of dollars more for a home that's clean, freshly painted, floors refinished, and with an inexpensive granite and stainless kitchen and updated lighting. (And use real light bulbs -- not the inexpensive ones that take forever to get bright!) If you invest $20K, you're likely to reap double that, if not triple!

3.   Today's buyers shop with their eyes, online.  If your property doesn't have excellent, professional-quality photos, you're dead in the water.
