Prepare to Sell

If you are going to prepare to sell your home, you want to consult with real estate agent. A real estate agent is going to not only teach you tips and tricks, but they can be an unbiased opinion to help you understand the true value of your home. This will help set you up for success in order to limit the days on the market, as well as earn you more money.

What to do to Prepare to Sell

The following are a couple of factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale:

Curb Appeal

It is important that the landscape to the property is well kept. Adding in perennials or annuals can really help the property to stand out at first glance. In some cases the house may need to be pressure washed or the gutters cleaned out to ensure that the physical appearance stands out.

Property Repairs

Simple upgrades such as window repairs, polishing the doorknobs, and a fresh coat of paint in the most frequently used rooms will instantly brighten up the property. While you can always have more in depth repairs, some small touch ups go a long way, without you having to come out of pocket as much.

Cleanliness and Staging

Keep your property uncluttered, sweet-smelling and well-lit from top-to-bottom. Pay attention to details: put away the kitty litter, place a vase of fresh flowers near the entryway, pop a batch of cinnamon rolls in the oven, have your carpets cleaned. Your agent will scan the property before it is listed for sale to see how you can improve the staging of your property.

Disclosures and Inspections

We are very familiar with the legal procedures involved in disclosures and are 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).


Presenting your property to potential buyers is a job that we will take care of for you. Buyers feel more comfortable discussing the property with the agent, if you are not there. Moreover, your agent will know what information will be most useful in representing your interests when speaking with prospective buyers.
