Selling Your Home – Preparing for Market
We are here to work with you to determine the best way to market your property and set your property up for success. We have learned from years of experience many tips and tricks for you to make your home more marketable to the largest, broadest audience. When we visit your home we will analyze your property and help you figure out what you can do to make it look the best. We are familiar with popular paint colors, current styles, and little things that you can do to make your home look more polished. We will work with you to figure out what you are willing to do and talk about what is realistic for you – what works with your life, your schedule, your family? From taking a few family pictures down (but not all) and rearranging a few furniture pieces, to painting a room a different color or replacing countertops, we can talk about possibilities and determine what you are willing to take on for the sale of your home. As we help you stage your home, we will share what we have heard from home buyers over the years and help you maximize your investment.
There are a few things that you can do on your own before we list your house. Here is an excellent checklist for Prepping Your Home for the Market. Now is an excellent time to make your home attractive to a potential buyer. We can recommend local contractors to help you with any needed repairs. Keep receipts for all maintenance and improvements. These are helpful during the inspection phase of a home sale. And follow this Seller Pre-Inspection Checklist to prepare your home for the inevitable professional home inspection that will be ordered once an offer is made.
It is always a great idea to talk to an experienced realtor if you are thinking about selling your home. We would love to share with you what the market is doing and recommend the best time for you to sell to get the most money for your property.
