Dale & Eke is taking the COVID-19 outbreak very seriously.  So, for the purpose of maintaining social distancing under CDC guidelines and to promote the health and safety of our clients, visitors and staff and reduce the spread of COVID-19, our physical office will be closed until further notice.

For the time being we are limiting all in-office meetings to those clients and potential clients who are not feeling ill or who have not shown signs of illness.  However, we are recommending that, unless you make other arrangements with your attorney, all client and potential client meetings occur via telephone or video conferencing.  If you have any paperwork for us that you need to drop off, please use the mail slot outside of the front door to our office.

We can still be reached at our office telephone number (317-844-7400). Your call will be answered by our office phone system and you may leave a voicemail in the general mailbox or with a specific attorney. All voicemails left in the general mailbox will be routed to the requested attorney or staff.

You may also email the firm through its website at  www.daleeke.com.

We will continue to monitor this evolving situation and adjust procedures as necessary.  Your health and safety, and the health and safety of our attorneys and staff, is our highest priority.  We thank you for your patience and understanding during these uncertain and unprecedented times.

What should you do while preparing to show your house?

As with any real estate process, selling your house can be frustrating due to the sheer amount of details involved.

However, even the smallest of improvements can catch a potential buyer’s attention.

Pay attention to cleaning

According to the New York Times, walking through your house as if you were a potential new viewer is one way to tell if you missed important details while staging it. Deep cleaning your windows and making sure to clear up particularly dusty areas can lead to a great first impression. Waxing and polishing floors can also help give an otherwise dull room a fresher look.

Brighten up the rooms

Making sure there are three points of light in each room is another way to draw attention to the layout of your home. You can use a small pendant lights, a large lamp or an overhead light to help balance out the brightness of each room.

Balance the colors

While you may love your walls as they are now, a fresh coat of paint can help draw new buyers in. Bright or neon wall colors overwhelm most people, so try to choose neutral or grays in order to make each room more appealing. Adding a pop of color with a bright pillow or blanket can also work in living rooms or bedrooms.

Depersonalize your decorations

Putting away photos or other personal items is one way to keep your buyers focused on the house itself. It may also make it easier for people to imagine themselves living there in the future. Clearing away your other personal clutter, such as toothbrushes or razors in bathrooms, creates a more professional look.
