Selling your home doesn’t have to be an arduous process, but being in perfect condition is important. From painters to contractors I can refer you to any professionals that you may need. My professional advice will guide you through the process and I can recommend what you should do for your home in particular. Here are some items to help get you started as you prepare.
Staging the Home: Staging your home is one of the most important things to do. Positioning your home in its best light is key to attaining the highest price. Keeping it free of clutter, clean and taking care of worn areas will all help create more of a “wow” factor for each prospective buyer.
Cleanliness: Your home will need to be clean throughout the entire time that it is on the market. Broker and public open houses may be scheduled in advance, but private showings can often be booked with far less notice. It is important that your home be in excellent condition for all of these buyers as well as for the professional photos that will be taken.
Pre-List Inspection: Nearly all buyers hire an inspector when they plan on buying a home. Sometimes it is a good idea to have an inspection yourself to address any items that come up that could deter any potential buyer from purchasing your home. Determining which repairs your home needs can be very helpful where you can decide which make sense to do before putting it on the market and which you want to have your list price reflect.
The Exterior: The exterior of your home should never be overlooked. It is the first thing and the last thing every prospective buyer will see. Always keep your landscaping manicured, walkways clear any debris and the paint should be in good shape. For condos, clean common areas and freshening up entryways with some potted plants or flowers can add warmth and be inviting.
