So, you’ve decided to make the most of the favorable real estate market and sell your home. Congrats! Do these three things and you’ll be well on your way to seeing a “SOLD” sign in your yard.
- Work with a real estate agent. Selling a home takes a lot of work and time. You need someone who knows the business, can help evaluate competition, and market your home – while you prepare for showings and the next big move!
- Repair, clean and stage. Make sure your home shines on picture day! Remove clutter – including clearing all the counter tops, tidy up and clean floors in every room, and open all the curtains and blinds to allow as much natural light as possible.
- Be as flexible as possible for showings. You want to set a welcoming tone from the get-go. Making your front door especially inviting is also a great impression as buyers enter for the first time.
