Agent & Price
Once you’ve determined that the time is right for you to sell your home, there are things you can do to improve your property’s appeal to buyers.
Tips for Preparing Your Home For Sale:
- Curb Appeal:
A potential buyer’s first impression of your home is extremely important. Ensure that your landscaping is maintained and the exterior of the home is clean and free of clutter. You want a potential buyer to have a positive impression of your home before they even step through the door.
- Property Repairs:
A well maintained home will sell faster and at a higher price than one that needs repairs. Go ahead and make any repairs that you are capable of; and a fresh coat of paint goes a long way.
- Cleanliness and Staging:
Dirt, dust and clutter have a significant negative impact on the appeal of a home. Ensure that your home is thoroughly cleaned and ready to show at all times. Remove distracting clutter, kitty litter, and knick-knacks. Fresh flowers and the smell of fresh baked goods are a nice touch that will add to your home’s appeal. Your agent will walk your property with you and provide recommendations on how to best stage your home for sale.
- Disclosures and Inspections:
We will guide you through the process of completing a disclosure statement for your home. This will provide potential buyers with valuable information regarding your home’s history and is required for most home sales.
Now that you’ve decided to sell your home, formulated a marketing strategy, and prepared your home for sale, it’s time to get ready for showings. Keep in mind that the more available you make your home for showings, the more potential buyers you will attract. It is best that the homeowner is not present during showings, so be prepared to leave your home before the potential buyer arrives. We will work with you to set blocks of time for when the home will be available to show.
