Why Hire an Agent?
Studies show that sellers who use a real estate agent generally get a better price than those who choose to sell their home themselves. As a Real Estate Broker, it is my job to stay up to date on the latest market trends and fluctuations. Utilizing a broker means no surprises during the selling process, as you will have the latest information at critical junctures in the process. Let us put our experience to work for you to ensure you get the best price for your home, and to make selling your home a stress-free experience.
Before Your Home is Listed
Prior to listing your home, you’ll want to ensure everything is in good showing condition.
Here are some important things to consider:
Now is the time to put things in storage, clean out the basement and garage, and remove any family photos or personal items.
Remember, you want buyers to see themselves in your home.
Touch up both interior and exterior paint.
Clean or replace carpet in areas with heavy wear.
Keep the interior and exterior clean and odor free.
Trim any overgrown bushes, mow the lawn and keep it free of leaves. Make sure the front of the home is clean and appealing.
You want to make a strong first impression.
Find Potential Problems Early
Once you’ve completed these steps, we suggest you hire a home inspector to perform a prelisting inspection. If you list with us, we will provide this service at our expense (A $400 Value). Buyers will be hiring professional inspectors too; this is your chance to find and address problems before we start to negotiate.
