Here are the top three ways you can ready your home for today’s market:
- Make an appointment with an agent. Many sellers don’t even know where to begin when it comes to making preparations. A few of the many factors to consider include the level of competition (i.e., market inventory) and what repairs and improvements will bring the best return on your investment. It’s important to schedule a consultation with an agent to discuss the particulars of the sale before you do anything else.
- Make an appointment with a stager. Research has shown that professional staging not only helps with saleability, but also helps homes sell at a higher price point and in a quicker fashion. An astounding 90% of buyers start their home search online, which means your listing’s online presence matters now more than ever before. An advantage of working with us is that every one of our sellers receives a free consultation with a professional stager before their home goes on the market.
- Depersonalize your home. Personal items can distract buyers’ attention away from the home itself. To ensure that your home appears inviting and distraction-free, take the time to remove such items as your bulletin boards, magazines, equipment, toys, photo books, and awards.
