How Do I Know That My Home Is Ready To List?

Many people wonder how much work it will take to get their home ready to hit the market.  Prepping a home can be an easy process if you simply follow a few easy steps.  The presentation of your home is of utmost importance.   Buyers desire a home that has great curb appeal and that has not been neglected.  Before you list a home, take a look at it with a very critical eye.  Take the time now to do the things that will get you an offer quickly.

4 simple steps to ensure that your home is ready sell:

  • Contact A Realtor And Know The Market: Many people question why they need a Realtor. A qualified and experienced realtor will be able to answer your questions and relieve your anxieties about listing.  It is important that you have a clear understanding of how your home will compete in this active real estate market.  Your agent should be able to assist you with finding comps, determining the list price for your home, prepping the home for listing and marketing it.
  • Give The Home A Deep Clean: First impressions leave a lasting impression.  Before listing your home make sure to do a deep clean. Wiping down molding, cleaning ceiling fans, cleaning carpets, all of these things will have a positive impact on potential buyers.
  • Organize And Declutter: Draw the buyers attention to your beautiful home and not your personal items.  When everything in the home has a place, the space feels more open and inviting.  If organization is not your strong suit, ask your Realtor for the name of a professional organizer.
  • Paint And Make Repairs: Bright colors that may have been your favorites may not appeal to a buyer and you may want to consider more muted colors. Painting will also cover imperfections.  Make sure to make repairs to items like cracks in the wall or leaky faucets.  Items like these may stand out to a buyer and become a deterrent.
