SELLING A HOME

When it’s time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show it to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and be there to supervise the closing. I will take care of everything you need, from start to close.

As an agent who’s an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about selling real estate in our local area. It’s not the same everywhere, so you need someone that you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve all of your real estate needs.

 

PREPARING TO SELL

Selling your home doesn′t just mean hiring a realtor to stick a sign out in your front yard.   There are a lot of preparations that should be made to ensure that you get the best offer possible in the shortest amount of time.

Repair. Just because you’ve gotten used to all the cracks in the walls and the rattles in the radiators does not mean a buyer will too. If you have hardwood floors that need refinishing, be sure to get it done—hardwood is a huge selling point. Buyers like to snoop around, so be sure to fix any sticky doors or drawers as well. Finally, don’t forget to address any issues with the exterior of the home—fences, shingles, sidewalks, etc. After all, without curb appeal, some buyers may never make it to see the inside of your home.

 

Neutralize. You want buyers to see themselves in your home. If your living room has lime green shag, wood-paneled walls, and all your collectibles and personal photographs, this will be much harder for them to do. Try replacing any bold color choices in your floors and walls with something more neutral—beiges, tans, and whites. Repainting and reflooring will make everything look fresh and new, and help prospective buyers imagine all of the possibilities.

 

Stage. Once your house is clean and updated, it’s time to play dress up. Home stagers can add small details and décor touches that will bring out the possibilities in the various spaces in your home: lamps, mirrors, throw rugs and pillows, flowers, decorative soaps and towels, patio furniture. Home staging can be particularly useful if your home is especially old or if the exterior looks dated. Think of it as a little mascara and rouge—if it’s done right, you will notice the beauty, not the makeup.
