Price the home competitively. Depending on the features & condition of the home coupled with a thorough assessment of the real estate market & similar properties, you may be able to sell your home quickly at a listing price above market value.
Prepare your home for the market. This includes minimizing furniture, removing area rugs, clearing countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, thorough house cleaning (dusting the fans, cleaning windows etc.), and repainting any brightly colored walls.
Remove personal pictures as they distract buyers from envisioning their family living in the home. You will be moving, so go ahead & carefully box these for safe keeping until you can place them into your new home.
Strategically place a few mirrors throughout the home. The psychological impact of seeing yourself in the home can influence a buyer’s decision.
Curb appeal – spruce up the landscaping i.e. trim bushes, refresh the mulch, keep grass cut, etc.
A great way to evaluate how your home will show to potential buyers is doing a curb to curb review. Stand at the curb in front of the home and take note of anything that detracts from the look and appeal of the home. As you approach the front door you want to do a full 360° check of the surroundings. Open the front door and take note of everything that immediately draws your eyes. Consider moving or even eliminating anything that is not a feature of the home. Continue to walk through the home taking note of anything distracting or unappealing to the eye in each room. Your trusted and knowledgeable real estate agent will assist you with this process to seek a quick, top dollar sale of your home.
