Selling your home is no easy task and often some important details can be overlooked. So, we’re going to give it to you straight…if you think it’s time to put your home on the market, here are some pointers that will help with the process:
- Don’t Neglect Necessary Repairs: We’ve mentioned in previous blog posts and can’t emphasis enough the importance of doing the necessary home repairs before selling your home. Not only will it increase the asking price of your home, but it will save you money in the long run.
- Don’t Sell an Empty Home: Staging is EVERYTHING! Empty spaces take the charm out of a home and cause buyers to have a harder time connecting with the property.
- Take Good Photos: Having clear, high resolution, and if possible, professional shots of your home is always a great idea. In the age of the internet, most people start their home buying search online, and if you have bad photos, chances are buyers will skip right over your property.
- Don’t put the Stress on Yourself: The assumption that you’re the best person to sell your home is one that seems better than it is. Hire someone that knows what they’re doing. You don’t have the time, experience or expertise to sell your house and get the price it deserves.
