How Can You Prepare Your Home for the Market?
Today we are excited to talk about the things that you can do, as a home seller, to get your home ready to sell for top dollar in our market.We know the things that you need to do and the things you don’t need to do, so let’s get to it.
If you want top dollar for your home sale, you’ve got to make a good impression. The very first impression a buyer has on your home is when they drive up, so your home has to have great curb appeal to draw them in. This means making sure the landscaping is neat and trimmed, the front door is all clean, and everything else is tidy and in order. Your home’s curb appeal is an indicator of what’s to come on the inside.
When the buyer steps inside your home, the biggest thing you want to do is make sure the home is not cluttered. The way we live in a home and the way we want it to show for sale are two different things. You want to take down all the personal photos, knick knacks, and collections, so people can focus on the property as opposed to what’s in it.
A lot of people ask us if they need to hire a stager for the property. Luckily, we have a certified stager on our team! We can tell you how to get your home in tip-top shape. In some cases, that may involve spending a little money, but in most cases, it's not necessary.
If you have any questions for us or just want some more home preparation advice, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
