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 important factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale:
1. Curb Appeal.
Landscape and maintenance are crucial to create an immediate impact on passers-by and potential buyers. You can enhance your landscape by adding creative touches to your yard, such as colorful annuals or exterior decorations. Keep an interior light on to attract buyers and create a feeling of warmth.

2. Property Repairs.
Be sure you have taken care of any property repairs as needed. Simple upgrades such as window repair, polishing the doorknobs, and a fresh coat of paint on the door and in the most frequently used rooms will instantly brighten up the property.

3. Cleanliness and Staging.
Keep your property uncluttered, 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, have your carpets cleaned. Our team will review 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 understand the forms, as well as suggest home improvement measures if needed before placing your property on the market.

5. Showtime.
Presenting your property to potential buyers. We recommend that you are not there when your home is shown. Buyers feel more comfortable discussing the property with the agent, if you are not there. The agent will know what information will be most useful to the buyer. We will be representing your interests when speaking with prospective buyers and other real estate agents.
