To Prepare Your Home To Sell
the Stage to show and sell
your home ready to show and sell can make the difference between
a quick sale and a long market time.
the stage may or may not get you more money but it can reduce
the time it takes your home to sell, which does save you money.
Setting the stage to show and sell your home is a two phase project.
the things you need to do BEFORE
you put your home on the market and secondly the things you
need to do before EVERY showing.
You Put Your Home on the Market
Rent a storage unit if you have to. Try to look at your home through
the eyes of a buyer. That stack of stuff in the corner that you
are so used to looking at needs to be removed. If your home is
small and or crowded consider rearranging or removing furniture
. The exercise equipment that you never use - Store It! Accessories
are wonderful and should remain in moderation.
Go to some model homes and see how they look. They have accessories,
but nothing is overdone. Closets should be uncluttered also. Remove
out of season clothes and give all those things you no longer
need to charity. Stack things neatly on shelves.
ADD - if your furnishings are sparse, borrow some pictures
for the walls, cover the beat up sofa with a throw and bring in
a flower arrangement. Just use common sense, make your home look
the best you can.
EVERYTHING Your home should sparkle. Don't overlook
light fixtures, a clean fixture can make a huge difference in
the lighting in a room. While you are cleaning the fixtures replace
dim bulbs with bright ones. Make sure your bathrooms are spotless,
faucets should be shiny, counters empty except for a few accessories,
fixtures cleaned and fresh (get the rust stains out of the toilet
etc), mirrors should be clean and streak free. The same goes for
the kitchen - sparkling faucet, clean shiny sink, cabinet fronts
should be wiped down or cleaned, replace drip pans on the range.
Wash all light switches, we don't realize how the fingerprints
collect on these. Go through your home room by room and make sure
everything has been cleaned, even the utility room and furnace.
MINOR REPAIRS That dripping faucet or toilet that won't
quit running may just be a quick 10 minute
repair but left alone can become a concern for the buyer. "Maybe
there is a plumbing problem" , "we better offer less"
or "there is too much deferred maintenance in this house"
are typical comments from buyers.
UP paint or paint a whole room if needed. The drawings
your kids made on the wall will not be considered art by potential
buyers. Touch up woodwork where needed. The scratches your dog
made on the door (or worse chewed the woodwork) should all be
fixed and painted. Re-caulk tubs and showers. More

you never get a second chance to make a great first impression!

really useful information
or selling a home can be a challenging, time-consuming process. Protect
your family's assets by taking some of the following precautions when
you are buying or selling a home:
Call on an expert
Before making important decisions like the 'asking price' for your home,
or an appropriate offer to make on your next property, make sure you
are seeking the counsel of a seasoned expert. Few other transactions
in your lifetime will have as significant of an impact on your family's
financial health and future. RE/MAX associates
are professionals who have established themselves as top performers
in their industry; they can apply their expert knowledge to save you
time and money. I am at your service.
Know the pace of the market
As your RE/MAX Associate, I will help you
to establish realistic expectations of how long it will take to sell
your home or to find and purchase an appropriate new property. In fast-paced
markets, for example, the most desirable properties often receive multiple
offers within days of being listed for sale. Making the decision to
become a homeowner or to change residences are processes that require
significant time and attention. Once those decisions have been made,
however, you will need to be prepared to act at, or ahead of, the pace
of your local market.
Identify your priorities
As a seller, your agent, I will conduct a CMA, or comparative market
analysis, to determine a realistic sale price of your home. I will also
help you to evaluate the results of that CMA within the framework of
your own needs and priorities.
You should interview your real estate agent in the same manner as you
might interview any other trusted professional - from doctor to dentist,
attorney to financial advisor. Make sure you understand what your agent
will do for you and how he or she will be compensated. I welcome
