Are you planning on selling your home? Preparing your home for the market can seem like a tedious task, but the payoff is well worth it. Proper home preparation, along with strategic pricing and effective marketing, increases the opportunity of your home selling quickly for the best possible price.
How to Prepare a Home for Sale
When preparing your home for sale, the first thing I suggest you do as a home seller is to step back and evaluate your entire home through the eyes of a buyer. Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments a buyer will make, so they will be nit picky. They will find things wrong with your home and they will use these against you when negotiating an offer. To give your home the wow factor, follow the suggestions on my Preparing Your House for Sale Checklist. Buyers will walk out of your home with a sense of urgency to submit an offer before anyone else beats them to it.
A majority of buyers will do a home inspection, and I can almost guarantee you that there will be some items in the report, but the fewer items, the less the buyer will want to run away from the transaction. Let me provide you an example of how properly preparing a house for sale works. My sellers properly prepared their home for the market, and the minimal amount of inspection repairs were addressed. After the property closed, the buyer’s agent mailed a gift with a thank you note stating the buyers were looking for things wrong with the property right up to the walk through, but they couldn’t find anything!
So how do you accomplish this? Follow my tips for preparing your home for sale. Getting your house ready for the market can seem like an overwhelming task, but not if you you tackle it room by room with my handy check list.
