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 a couple of factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale:

  1. Curb Appeal.

    Keeping your landscape pristine, and adding a few colorful annuals will create an immediate impact on potential buyers.

  2. Property Repairs.

    Simple upgrades such as window repairs, polishing the doorknobs, and a fresh coat of neutral color paint in the most frequently used rooms will instantly brighten up the property.Your front door contributes to your first impression. Could it use a coat of fresh paint? We can consult with you about what types of small changes will have the most impact.

  3. Cleanliness and Staging.

    Keep your property uncluttered, 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, make the beds, and have your carpets cleaned. We also advise that you remove personal items, like pictures of family, so that buyers can envision their own family in the space. Our agents will scan 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 develop a thorough disclosure statement beneficial to both you and the buyer, as well as suggest home improvement measures to consider before placing your property on the market.

  5. Showtime.

    Presenting your property to potential buyers is a job that we will take care of for you. We will provide you as much notice as you require for showings, but we urge you to be as flexible as possible to accommodate buyers’ schedules. Your agent will know what information will be most useful in representing your interests when speaking with prospective buyers.
