Are You Prepared To Sell Your Home?

I spend a lot of time driving through local neighborhoods, and can’t help but notice new homes listed for sale are popping up like daisies or dandelions in the spring time.

Recently, clients have mentioned they’ve walked through fifteen or more homes prior to selecting the one they would like to purchase.  It is clear that buyers have many choices this year.

Get Buyers to Choose Your Home

First, consult with your Real Estate professional for marketing strategies such as clearing away the clutter and staging your home to highlight its best features. Look at your home with a critical eye to help you identify the areas needing help.  The “lived in” look of your home makes it difficult for most potential buyers to see themselves living there.

Second, have a pre-listing inspection prior to listing your home for sale.  This Pre-Listing Inspection and the follow on report will provide you with an unbiased perspective on the condition of your home.  The report will identify areas that would benefit from improvement, confirm proper function of mechanical systems and provide you a reference to share with prospective buyers.

Make Improvements

Once you receive your inspection report, you can make any necessary improvements that you and your real estate professional feel are important to expedite the sale of your home.  Our experience has determined this proactive approach often brings about excellent results and has the potential to gain the full listing price for the seller.

A past client explained, “…after my pre-listing inspection, I made specific improvements from routine maintenance to landscaping upgrades.  This was the best move I ever made”, he stated, “the improvements didn’t cost much, but my home sold fast and for the price I wanted!”
