Prepping to Sell!

Be sure your home is prepared before it hits the market. You want to ensure it's portrayed in the best light to get the best offers.

  • Improve your landscaping and curb appeal, since that is the first thing buyer's see.

  • Making as many repairs as you can afford to. Unless your pricing it below market value to sell as-is, taking the time to make repairs can get you a better offer.

  • If you can, repaint your home. Adding a fresh coat of paint to a lived-in property can help it feel like new.

  • Remove too much clutter and store away as much as you can.

  • Depersonalize the home by removing family photos, so you give buyers the opportunity to envision their own lives in the house, instead of feeling like they are intruding into someone else's.

  • Organize your closets, yes people look in there, showcase them!

  • Clean, clean, clean. We recommend having a professional cleaner come in right before your home is listed, then be sure to keep it clean for every showing.

  • Eliminate bad odors. You may have gotten use to smells in your home, but home buyers will be able to quickly pick up on pet and smoke odors.

  • Keep your decor and furniture simple and light. You want to showcase the size of the home without it being overwhelming with too much stuff. If you can afford to, we recommend having it professionally staged.
