One question I often get is, “How do I prepare my home before I sell?”

To answer this, I’d like to list the four key steps all sellers should take when preparing their property for the market.

1. Make your home picture-perfect. Photos will make or break your home’s online presence. Be sure to remove personal items and clear all flat surfaces and countertops of clutter. This will maximize available space. Not everyone has the same taste. Your home should appear neutral and tidy.

2. Start packing now.  Our market is moving more quickly than ever, so getting a head start on packing up your belongings can make your eventual move much more convenient.

3. Don’t forget about curb appeal. Buyers will want to make sure your home looks as good in person as it does online. So be sure to freshen up your property’s exterior to make a great first impression.

It’s important to help buyers see your house as their next home.

4. Give your backyard a lifestyle. A lot of people spend a considerable amount of time in their backyard, especially at this time of year. Creating an additional living space may serve as an attractive feature when you list. This will sell buyers on a lifestyle and help them see your house as their next home.

Of course, these tips are just a starting place. My team and I would be happy to provide advice specifically tailored to your home, so please reach out.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
