Increase the appeal of your property and create a lasting impact on potential buyers. Be prepared to
Here's a couple of factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale: 1. Small repairs and improvements Look for items that can increase value for a low cost. Simple upgrades such as window repairs, polishing the doorknobs, and a fresh coat of paint as needed will instantly brighten up the property. If you have carpets, make sure to have them cleaned, it makes a significant impact on buyers for a small investment.
Keeping your landscape in shape, and adding creative touches to your front-yard, such as colorful plants and flowers, will create an immediate impact on passers-by and potential buyers.
3. Disclosures and Inspections. There are legal procedures involved in disclosures and an agent is ready to help you develop a thorough disclosure statement beneficial to both you and the buyer, as well as suggest home improvement measures before placing your property on the market (such as termite and pest inspections).
4. Showing the property Presenting your property to potential buyers is a job that an agent does for you. Sometimes the listing agent shows it, sometimes the buyer's agent shows it. Buyers feel more comfortable discussing the property with the agent. Moreover, agents will know what information will be most useful in representing your interests when speaking with prospective buyers.
5. Home Cleanliness and Staging (Ideas: Put away any kitty litter, place a vase of fresh flowers near the entryway, pop a batch of cinnamon rolls in the oven.) Make sure your home is uncluttered, sweet-smelling and well-lit from top-to-bottom. Your agent will scan the property before it is listed for sale and make suggestions on how you can improve the staging of your property.
