1. Curb Appeal
Always keep the front of your home looking spectacular. It takes 3-7 seconds to form a positive first impression and you want to keep potential buyers interested. Be known as the house on the street that's 'always so tidy'...not only will you enjoy the benefits of a well-kept yard, but a home that is maintained goes a long way to getting you top dollar.
2. Before You List
Clean your home like your mother-in-law is coming over for a visit! All the nooks and crannies need a good clean scrub and keep it looking sparkling. There's good reason HGTV home shows are so popular! When you enter a home that has been cleaned and staged, it's easy to feel right at home. You wouldn't think to sell your vehicle without detailing it first...this same principle applies to your biggest investment. Fresh and clean is key to selling your home.
3. Hire the Right Realtor
Honest, knowledgeable, and experienced are qualities you want to find in your realtor. Are they a professional, full-time realtor, or is it just their side hustle? How many transactions do they have under their belt? How well do they know the current market situation? The realtor who readily agrees to list your home out of market value range may not be the one you want negotiating on your behalf to get you top dollar. Ask questions and hire the right realtor.
