Prepare to Sell
Agent & Price
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 creative touches to your yard, such as colorful annuals, will create an immediate impact on passers-by and potential buyers.
2. Property Repairs. Simple upgrades such as window repairs, polishing the doorknobs, and a fresh coat of paint in the most frequently used rooms will instantly brighten up the property.
3. Cleanliness and Staging. Keep your property uncluttered, sweet-smelling 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, pop a batch of cinnamon rolls in the oven, have your carpets cleaned or replaced. Your agent will scan the property before it is listed for sale to see how you can improve the staging of your property.
4. Costs of Basic Services and Repair/Renovation Information. Giving potential buyers information on costs of utilities, taxes or insurance for the home as well as providing receipts for work done on the home during the seller’s occupancy are helpful. Your agent will ask you about the ages of the roof, heating & cooling systems etc. so that she can answer these commonly asked questions from potential buyers.
5.Showtime. Presenting your property to potential buyers is a job that we will take care of for you. Buyers feel more comfortable discussing the property with the agent if you are not there. Moreover, your agent will know what information will be most useful in representing your interests when speaking with prospective buyers.
