Preparing for Your Home's Real Estate Market Debut

Many sellers have the impression that in order to sell a home, you just have to list it. While listing is certainly part of the process, there's quite a bit of preparation to undertake before your home's listing goes 'live' on the MLS.

The real estate market is always changing, so whether you're a first time home seller or an experienced seller, you are likely to encounter some uncertainty. To help make the process worry-free, follow these tips and be sure to ask me any questions that may arise.
  • Prepare your home - make any necessary repairs, make minor updates as needed, pack away valuables and medications, and get your home move-in ready. 

  • Prepare your yard - manicure the grass, trim trees and bushes, plant flowers to give your yard a 'pop' of color.

  • Prepare your mind - try to remove the sentimental or emotional value you have in your home and see it as it is: a place to live.

  • Prepare your schedule - make your home easily available to show during the day.  Improving the accessibility of your home to buyers and their agents may help you sell it faster.
