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.

  1. 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! 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.
Once you’ve got these three mindsets and worked with your agent to get an action plan in place – you’d better start packing, because it won’t be long until closing day!
