Selling your home can be an emotional rollercoaster. One minute you’re excited about the next adventure, and the next you’re reminiscing about all the great memories you’ve had in this house. But selling your home can be a quick, profitable, and stress-free process if you have the right people on your team.
If you’re thinking about selling your home, check out this comprehensive home seller’s guide to help prepare you for your next big adventure!
Getting Ready To Sell
The first step in selling your home starts way before the professional photos are taken and the For Sale sign is in the yard. Selling your home starts with intentional preparation. It means going through each room of your home with eyes like a buyer, carefully analyzing how each room looks and feels. This first step is when you make repairs, improve your curb appeal, and make improvements that will increase the value of the home.
Some things you can do to prepare your home for sale include:
- Spending a weekend or two upgrading the landscaping in the front yard
- Applying a fresh coat of paint to living areas/bedrooms
- Having the carpets professionally cleaned
- Starting to move small things into storage
- Taking care of repairs/maintenance
- Investing in bathroom/kitchen upgrades
If you’re not sure where to start, I’d love to walk through your home with you and offer expert advice on how you can make your home appeal to modern buyers. Some sellers choose to hire a home stager to help showcase the home’s best features, while others choose to stage it themselves. Either way, your goal should be to transform your home so that buyers walk in and can see themselves living there.
Build Your Team
The next step is to work with a professional. The home preparation stage can be pretty personal, but when it is time to move forward, you need someone who knows the industry, the area, and the local market. This is where I come in. I will work tirelessly behind the scenes to create a customized marketing plan specifically for your home, and use traditional and (and some not-so-traditional) techniques to get your home in front of as many qualified buyers as possible.
There are a lot of details to consider, contracts to read, review, and sign, showings to schedule, and negotiations to make, and I’ll take care of it all. I'll even advertise and market an open house plan to entice potential buyers to view your home.
Price It Right
One of the most important parts of selling your home is pricing it right. Price it too high, and you’ll scare off a lot of buyers. Price it too low and people will wonder what’s wrong with the home. Competitive pricing can be tricky, but it is critical in receiving offers and walking away with the money you need to move onto the next chapter. We can work together to come up with dynamic pricing options that will start generating interest right away!
