So you’ve decided to put your home on the market. Selling a home can be an intimidating process, but we are here to guide you through the process each step of the way. The first step is taking the time to get your property market ready which can maximize your chances of getting a great offer. Investing in some simple improvements and upgrades to the interior and exterior of your home will pay off in the long run. Here are some tips to get you started, but don’t stress – during your seller consultation we’ll walk through each of these steps with you and create a customized plan for your home!

De-Clutter and Depersonalize

The first step in getting your home market ready is decluttering and depersonalizing. This means removing any excess items from the house that make it look cluttered or disorganized. You should also remove any personal items such as family photos and mementos that could distract potential buyers from seeing the home itself. While it may seem like a small task, this step can make all the difference in how buyers perceive your home.

Make Necessary Repairs

You know those little things you meant to fix but never got around to? Now is the time! Making sure everything is in proper working order will help give potential buyers peace of mind when viewing the property. Take a walk around the interior and exterior of your property, noting minor repairs that need to be done. This could include anything from replacing burnt out lightbulbs or replacing faulty door knobs to fixing broken blinds. If there is something major that needs repairing (e.g., replacing a roof), consider doing this ahead of time if possible so you don’t have to negotiate price reductions based on repairs needed after closing. 

Freshen Up Your Exterior

The first thing potential buyers will see when they pull up to view your property is its exterior appearance, so you want it looking its best. Pressure wash the driveway and sidewalks, touch up any paint chips or scuffs on the siding or trim, mow the lawn regularly and add some colorful flowers or shrubs for added curb appeal. 

Stage Your Home To Impress

Staging is one of the most important aspects of making sure that potential buyers fall in love with your home before they even set foot inside it. According to a study conducted by the National Association of Realtors®, 82% of buyers agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as their future home. 

When you list your home many agents will charge extra for this service but with us we include staging services in our full service listing package. Our stagers will accentuate each space with neutral-toned decor and accents that match with the style of the house—this could include paintings, throw pillows, vases, plants—anything that adds a bit of warmth without being too distracting from what potential buyers should really be focusing on: The house itself!

When putting your home on the market, taking the time to get it market ready is essential for success—but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming or stressful! By de-cluttering and depersonalizing; staging; and making necessary repairs before listing, you can help ensure that buyers fall in love with your property at first sight! With these tips, getting your home market ready won’t take too much effort and will help ensure that selling goes smoothly from start to finish – and don’t forget we will also be there for you every step of the way!
