One of the questions I get all the time from sellers is, “What do I need to do to get my home ready to sell?” That’s a great question, so let’s talk about it in further detail today.
Getting your home ready to sell can feel very overwhelming because there are a million things that need to happen. That’s why we love talking to people early in the process. We like to meet with sellers up to a year before they want to sell. This lets you learn about the process and will answer most of the questions you have.
Generally, you want to make sure your home is a blank slate. If it’s spring and you know you’re moving before winter, start packing that winter stuff up now. Do you need to paint walls or is there any obvious deferred maintenance? If so, this is something you’ll want to take care of.
Every neighborhood is different, however. Certain repairs that you’ll need to make in one area won’t need to be made in others. That’s where professional advice will really help you early on in the process.
If you plan on selling anytime in the near future, start decluttering and packing away the stuff you don’t need, then give us a call. We can give you our expert advice on exactly what you need to do to maximize your home’s sale price. Our greatest concern is that your bottom line is as high as it can be. We want to save you from unneeded repairs and help you do the right thing. I want to make sure that you’re investing your money where it matters.
If you’re thinking about selling or know someone who is, don’t hesitate to reach out and give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
