The appearance of your home is going to speak volumes to potential buyers, and you want that message to be a good one.
How your home appears as potential buyers are driving up to it will be a major factor in their first impression. Make your home as welcoming as possible by cleaning everything, inside and out. This is also a good time to do any necessary repairs, and even hire a landscaper.
Hire a professional stager to help you arrange your house in a way that will best allow potential buyers to envision themselves living there. Decluttering and depersonalizing the house as much as possible makes the home feel “brand new” and will make it more appealing to buyers.
The online listing is oftentimes the first glimpse of your house that buyers are going to see, and you want to make it count. Hire a professional photographer to take high quality photos of your home. If the photos in the online listing are good, more buyers will want to visit.
Make sure you take your agent’s advice when it comes to the listing price of your home. Rather than listing your home at a higher price from the start, research the prices of other homes in your area. Then your agent might suggest listing yours consistent with the market value. This way a bidding war could start, resulting in a much higher price.
Hiring an agent is one of the best decisions you could make after you have decided to sell your home. They have been trained to juggle many jobs, including research, paperwork preparing listing descriptions, plus lots of little details that will best prepare your home for showings. Trying to do this on your own could make a potentially time-consuming process into a stressful and exhausting one as well.
They can also get your listing in front of way more people than you could on your own, speeding up the process exponentially. Not only are they fluent in real-estate jargon that is full of acronyms and fine print, they can easily navigate through technical documents like forms, reports, and disclosures while avoiding delays and mistakes that could cost you.
