Considering Selling Your Home Soon?

I will share 10 tips to get your home ready to sell and make the best presentation to potential buyers!

Here are the steps I recommend to get your home market ready!  

1)  Contact a Realtor - Put a game plan together and get valuable market information specific to your home so you know where you stand.
2)  Property Evaluation - Evaluate your home’s condition to prepare it for the market from sprucing up the outside to cleaning up the inside.
3)  Finish Projects - Don’t hit the market with unfinished projects, now is the time to finish them.
4). Declutter - Remove excess furniture and stuff in general so potential buyers can see your home & not your belongings.
5). Depersonalize - Remove excess pictures, collections, etc… present your home not yourself.
6). Curb Appeal - This is the first impression both in person & online, so let’s tidy it up and put our best foot forward.
7)  Deep Clean - A good cleaning is good… but a deep clean is even better.
8). Address Smells - Pets, kids rooms, cat litter box, and the rest of the usual suspects… it is time to freshen up the place and keep it that way for showings.
9). Find Paperwork - Survey, HOA documents, home improvement invoices… all these help justify your price, show you are not keeping any secrets and provides them with information they want to know.
10)  Utility bills - Let’s face it a new house brings new utility bills and providing these will help potential buyers have an idea of what bills to expect.
