Sellers: Get your House In Order:
In most areas, the days or quick sales and "name your price" are over. A little preparation before you list will help you get a satisfactory price within a reasonable time and will reduce stress of selling
- Make Finishing Touches - Most buyers want a home in move-in ready condition. Complete unfinished jobs and make sure everythings in good working order - no squeaks, drips, or cracks. Consider booking a pre-listing inspection allowing sufficient time to correct any weakness.
- Clean it Up! - To help spark offers, remove all clutter and give a thorough cleaning. A fresh coat of paint in a neutral colous can work magic.
-List at the RIGHT price - Work with your agent to evaluate your home. You'll generate more immediate interest if it's prices appropriately for your area.
- Anticipate Conditions - Take time now to think about potential conditions that might be placed on an offer - for example closing date, repairs, & financing. You'll be better able to respond quickly if you've though about your own needs already.
