Preparing Your Home

Preparation of a house prior to showing is crucial to its saleability. The first impression on prospective homebuyers will forecast everything about a potential sale, so it's vital that you make your property look and feel the best it possibly can. A clean, beautiful, staged house will move much faster than an empty space, so it's important to think about how you would like to present it and what it will take to do that.

Depending on your situation, there are lots of options, and while some houses may spare no expense in staging, it doesn't always have to cost a fortune. In most cases, a staging artist is hired to dress the property with furnishings that resonate with its inherent atmosphere and style, giving open house visitors a warm and comfortable feeling. In certain situations, sellers will leave their existing furniture in the house and include it in the sale. We are here to help you find the solution that is right for you — we'll point you in the right direction!

Selling Tips

When selling a home, the best possible result comes from being flexible and setting your price accurately. Here are some tips to help you in the process:

  • Be prepared to accept a price that is fair for the market.
  • Try to keep an open mind and don't be disappointed if you don't make as much off the sale as others homesellers you may know.
  • Reduce your price just below the ten thousand (ie. $249,000).
  • Gauge your price by looking around your neighborhood at other houses for sale.
  • Take high-quality photos of your home's interior & exterior.
  • Make sure your home is listed for sale on the internet, as this is where 74% of buyers find homes. (2010 National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers)
  • Stage your house for the best possible experience for prospective homebuyers.
