3 Steps for Preparing to Sell Your Home

Make Repairs

While you are preparing to sell your home, it is vital to start making necessary repairs and updates. If there is a leaky faucet, a few missing shingles, or a big hole in the wall from your husband’s last attempts to hang up the new tv, get it fixed.  When buyers come in to look at your home, it is very easy for them to be turned off by even the simplest things that need repairs.  When in doubt, hire a professional.

Stage Your Home

Declutter and depersonalize as much as possible when preparing to sell your home.  You will be moving soon anyway so get a jumpstart by packing up your collection of Elvis plates.  Buyers want to envision themselves living in this home, but they can become distracted by your kids’ artwork covering the refrigerator and the collage of family portraits.  Organize every cabinet, closet, and drawer because buyers will look.  A fresh coat of paint does wonders.  And it helps buyers to see your home better when they are not tripping over dog toys.

Price it Correctly

Pricing a property too high runs the risk of your home sitting on the market for too long as well as scaring away qualified buyers.  We want to price your home so you will get the highest price possible in the most efficient way.  We do this by using our knowledge of the recent sales of comparable properties and adjust for differences in square footage, quality, and condition. 

Bonus: Make Your Home Easy to Show

 If the only time buyers can see your home is a two-hour window every other Saturday, the smaller the number of buyers will see your home which obviously makes it hard to sell.  We will accommodate you to the best of our ability and work around your schedule, but it makes everything easier when we have more time to show your home.  Plus, it really helps when you keep your home nice and tidy for last-minute showings.
