Preparing your home for sale so that it is in perfect show condition is essential. As you only get one chance to make a first impression, follow these steps that I have prepared for a successful sale.
Staging: Arranging your home so it shows best is vital. It may not be the way you live in it day-to-day, but the right placement of furniture can really help showcase your home so that every buyer sees its true potential.
Keep it Clean: Cleanliness and staging are not just for the photos. Open houses and private showings also will occur and the home needs to be in perfect condition for all.
- Be sure to also remedy any deferred maintenance items.
- Freshening up paint or professionally cleaning your carpets will also give the impression you want to all prospective buyers.
- Clean and organize all closets and storage areas as they will appear larger.
Exterior: It is the first thing and the last thing all who visit your home will see so you want to make sure it looks great.
- Consider a fresh coat of paint on the front door
- Tidy up your landscaping, walkways and entryways
Price: Pricing a home is not easy as it is based on many things like active properties that are similar, sold properties and of course location and condition. I will assist you with data on homes on the market as well as my professional opinion on your particular home’s desirable attributes so that you can arrive at the most appropriate price to go to the market with. Selecting the right price from the beginning is important as the majority of the traffic seen on a listing is within the first couple of weeks. It is best to capitalize on presenting the best price to this large and captive audience.
