Preparing Your Home For Sale
Getting Ready To Sell?
Here are a few tips to save money, time and stress:
- Make needed repairs and address any mechanical or structural issues in the home before putting it up for sale, since these often result in re-negotiation after the buyer's home inspection. Some homeowners go as far as having their home inspected by a licensed Home Inspector, just so there are no surprises after an offer is accepted.
- Hire the right agent for you and your particular situation. This agent will be key to every aspect of the listing and sale of your home: Staging, Pricing, Marketing, and eventually Negotiating the best price for your home. You'll need maximum web exposure for your listing, and pricing and negotiation skills are going to be key.
- Staging your home for sale. This first requires an unbiased walk around the home and property, noting areas where your home needs some de-cluttering or furniture needs rearranging. This is where agents come in handy, since they see more houses than anyone and know buyer likes and dislikes.
- Give your home the best cleaning it's ever seen. Soon, buyers will be coming through the door and inspecting every inch of your home –not to mention that photos will be taken for the online listing! They are the first impression the home will make, so you'll want rooms to look big, clean and bright.
