Selling your home involves some basic steps to follow. Having your home best prepared will often lead to a shorter time on the market and higher selling price. Here is a list of key items to consider as you begin the process.
Preparing your Home For Sale:
Getting your home in tip top shape is most important. This includes not only a thorough cleaning from top to bottom, but also arranging furniture so that it showcases your home’s true potential. Go room by room and ensure everything is in good condition including organizing closets so they appear more accommodating. Don’t forget the exterior of your home as it is the first and last thing every buyer will see. Make it welcoming and a positive impression they will take with them when they leave.
Pricing it Right:
You only get one chance to make a first impression so your asking price should be appropriate just like your home’s condition. Market data will be provided in the way of comparable homes for sale and sold so you have the data to arrive at the right price. It is important to begin with the right price as most of the buyer traffic occurs during the first few weeks of listing your home and you will want to capitalize on this.
