Prepare to Sell

You can do a lot to increase the appeal of your property and to create a lasting impact on potential buyers.

What To Do to Prepare:
The following are a couple of factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale:

  1. Curb Appeal.

    Keeping your landscape pristine, and adding creative touches to your yard, such as colorful annuals, will create an immediate impact on passers-by and potential buyers. Refresh rock and remove any items that clutter the yard.

  2. Property Repairs.

    Simple upgrades such as window repairs, caulking sinks, and showers, and a fresh coat of paint in the most frequently used rooms and front door will instantly brighten up the property.

  3. Cleanliness and Staging.

    Keep your property uncluttered (especially all countertops), sweet-smelling, and well-lit from top-to-bottom. Pay attention to details: put away the kitty litter, place a vase of fresh flowers near the entryway, pop a batch of cinnamon rolls in the oven, clean your windows, replace air filters, and have your carpets cleaned. Your agent will scan the property before it is listed for sale to see how you can improve the staging of your property. 4. Disclosures and Inspections. We are very familiar with the legal procedures involved in disclosures and are ready to help you develop a thorough disclosure statement beneficial to both you and the buyer, as well as suggest home improvement measures before placing your property on the market.

  4. Showtime.

    It is best when showing that you and your pets are not present. Buyers feel more comfortable viewing the home when sellers aren’t there. Make sure all lights are on, all window coverings are open, personal items are tucked away, and the house seems bright and inviting.
