Selling Your Home: What Goes Into That?

Selling your home is usually not an easy decision to make. It’s one that you spend days, weeks, years thinking about, mulling over timing, logistics, and where to go next. Sure, sometimes the decision is made for you, like a military transfer, but for the most part, you usually come to a point where you’re ready to put your home on the market over time.So, what next? What goes into preparing your home to be marketed, helping you to get top dollar? There are a few things:
  • A good cleaning
  • Removing any excess of items
  • Having your home staged
When you decide to list with us, we book photos for your listing with a professional photographer, and we will recommend that you run through these three steps before photos are taken. People love perusing listings online and we get one chance to catch those people’s attention and say, “hey, this home is perfect you. You should check out this property in more detail!” The cleaner and the less cluttered your home is, the easier it is for potential buyers to imagine all of their stuff in the kitchen or living room or bedroom. Think of it as cleaning the canvas, getting ready for the next painting. Plus, this way your home is all ready to go when it hits the open market and we start to book showings.As for the stager, it is a verifiable fact that homes that are staged sell quicker than homes that aren’t. We work with a local stager, At First Sight Home Staging, and she is a talented lady who can help whip your home into a perfected listing. Whether she uses your existing furniture and maximizes the space or brings in additional pieces, she can help create the perfect atmosphere to leave a lasting, and quality, impression on buyers. We highly recommend that sellers with vacant properties talk to At First Sight and get a quote. Buyers are much more inclined to imagine themselves living in a home if it is staged rather than just an empty space.Are you ready to take the plunge and list your condo?
