Planning on selling your home? Here are seven tips to consider before putting your home on the market:
Make a list of items that need to be fixed and start ticking them off. Buyers do not want a long list of repairs.
Create Curb Appeal
The first look at your home is important online and in person. Make sure your home’s exterior looks its best.
Inside and out, top to bottom, your home needs to be clean and tidy.
Have Pets? Make Them Disappear
If you have a pet, it is important to get rid of all pet odors and fur dust. It is best to remove all evidence of your pet (hide food dishes and toys) as some buyers could be turned off by fido or kitty.
When buyers tour your home, you want them to focus on your home’s features, not all of the momentoes and photos.
Hire a Professional
Your Sibcy Cline agent will help you study the current real estate market so you understand what comparable homes have recently sold for and what homes would be competing against yours on the market.
The Right Price
Your agent will help you establish the correct asking price for your home. Remember, if your home is priced too high, you will not attract buyers; and if your home is on the market too long, it will look less desirable (even if you lower the price.)
