Being aware of market conditions gives you the right outlook when it comes time to putting your home on the market to sell. We all want the most out of our home. The more we can make than what we put into it, the better! Keep in mind that market conditions are always changing and this can impact the value of your home. Relying on sites like Zillow or Trulia to give an estimation of your property’s value can, and often times will, lead to disappointment. Their values can differentiate by up to 20% of what their Zestimates claim ­their words, not ours. This is why it’s imperative to hire a professional to provide a true analysis of your property so you can have a better understanding of what your home is worth in current market conditions. You can then make the decision of selling your property if it’s the right step to take based on its value.

• Be sure your home is prepared before it hits the market. You want to ensure it’s portrayed in the best light to get the best offers.
• Improve your landscaping and curb appeal, since that is the first thing buyers see.
• Make as many repairs as you can afford to. Unless you are pricing it below market value to sell as-is, taking the time to make repairs can get you a better offer.
• If you can, repaint your home. Adding a fresh coat of paint to a lived-in property can help it look like new.
• Remove clutter and store away as much as you can.
• Depersonalize the home by removing family photos, so you give buyers the opportunity to envision their own lives in the house instead of feeling like they are intruding into someone else’s.
• Organize your closets. People will look in there, so showcase them!
• Clean, clean, clean. We recommend having a professional cleaner come in right before your home is listed. Be sure to keep it clean for every showing.
• Eliminate bad odors. You may have gotten used to smells in your home, but home buyers will be able to quickly pick up on pet and smoke odors.
• Keep your decor and furniture simple and light. You want to showcase the size of the home without it being overwhelmed by too much stuff. If you can afford to, we recommend having it professionally staged.
