Studies show that sellers who use a real estate agent generally get a better price than those who sell the home themselves. As an agent, it is my job to stay current on the latest market trends and fluctuations. Utilizing an agent will help streamline the process and ensure as flawless a transaction as possible, as you will have the latest information at critical junctures along the way. Let me put my experience, negotiation, and communication skills to work for you to ensure you get the best price for your home!
Prior to listing your home, you’ll want to ensure everything is in good showing condition before buyers start to tour the home. Here are some important things to consider:
Now is the time to put things in storage, clean out the basement and garage and start preparing to show your home. Remove any family photos or personal items. Remember, you want buyers to see themselves in your home!
Touch up both interior and exterior paint.
Clean or replace carpet in areas with heavy wear.
Keep the interior and exterior clean and odor free.
Trim any overgrown bushes, mow the lawn, and keep it free of leaves or snow. Make sure the front of the home is clean and appealing. You want to make a solid first impression!
Find Potential Problems Early
Once you’ve completed these steps, you may want to hire someone to perform a pre-listing inspection. Buyers will hire professional inspectors, too; this is your chance to find and address problems before it’s time to sell.
Consider hiring a professional stager to help give buyers the appeal they’re looking for. I have a reasonably priced stager, who I work with, and I would be happy to have her meet with you for a free consultation.
You will need to plan to have something to do during the times potential buyers visit your home. If initial offers don’t meet your expectations, don’t dismiss them immediately. You may need to consider lowering your asking price if weeks pass with little to no showing traffic. No offers can be generated without showings and second showings, and it can mean that your home is priced too high for the specific neighborhood and for the time of year. I will work closely with you in determining as accurate of market value for your home as possible in the beginning, so we can reach the maximum buying pool, find the best fit buyer, and thus obtain an offer as close to the listing price as possible.
