Preparing Your Home
1.) First Impressions
A buyer wants to walk into a house and immediately feel at home. Sellers must prepare their house to be the dream home a potential buyer is looking for and our expert agents are available to help sellers assess their homes and create a foolproof plan to impress buyers quickly.
Pre-Listing Home Inspection
A pre-listing home inspection can be beneficial to the seller because it will reveal anything that will come upon a home inspection. Homeowners have the chance to fix any glaring issues before a buyer comes in, thus eliminating the hassle during the closing process! See our preferred vendors HERE!
2.) Deep Cleaning
One of the most important aspects of preparing for a showing is to thoroughly clean your home from top to bottom. This is a great opportunity to make a list of any areas of the home that may need small repairs. This will allow you to make sure your home is in tip-top shape for showings to begin.
3.) Clear the Clutter
When the buyers walk in, they’ll want to be able to envision themselves living in the home. Start by removing any personal items to make the surfaces feel more clean. Tour your own home and search for cluttered spots where unnecessary knickknacks can easily be reduced.
4.) Adding Value
Be sure to consult an agent on the value of your home before listing it on the market. A professional real estate agent will be able to evaluate the updates that are worth completing in order to attract buyers.
We've listed some common updates to take into consideration when preparing your home for the real estate market.
- Updates that increase usable space.
