When selling your home you will want to showcase it in the best light and to the greatest amount of people. My professional experience can lead you through the necessary process to successfully sell your home. The following are a few points to review as you prepare:
Your own personal goals will play a large role in when you either have to move or would like to move. Based on my intimate knowledge of the local market, I can help you determine the best time to sell.
Cleanliness is key during the marketing process. Stowing away all additional belongings and removing clutter will make your home appear more spacious and appealing. Consider donating any unnecessary items or getting a temporary storage unit. Make sure all closets and storage areas are well organized as they will appear larger and more accommodating. Be sure your home is clean and ready for professional photos, all open houses and private appointments.
Staging your home is just as important as keeping it clean. I can help you arrange your living spaces in a way that helps buyers see your home’s true potential. This may mean your home will not be set up as you live in it everyday, but what might be a temporary inconvenience will pay dividends!
The exterior of your home is the first and last thing all buyers will see, so it is an opportunity to make a great impression. Keep landscaping tidy, entryways free of clutter and consider a fresh coat of paint on the front door. Investing in potted plants or flowers can also add color and life.
In any market a lot of factors go into pricing a home including what is currently on the market, what has just sold, location/neighborhood as well as condition/upgrades of your property. I will break down this market data with you and craft a strategy to get you the best price for your home. Your most serious buyers will typically come through the door in the first 2 weeks, I’ll make sure you are ready to take their best offers.
As a professional in the industry with many years of experience, I have the resources to assist you with each step of the way. Need a lender or a moving company? Just ask. Let my experienced network of professionals help make your transaction go as smoothly as possible.
