Three things to focus on when preparing your home for the market.
Ready to put your home on the market and get top dollar? Great news, because 2023 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for sellers! But with the market changing, you want to make sure you're doing everything right to ensure a speedy and successful sale. So, grab a pen and paper because we're about to share the top three things you absolutely must focus on.
1. First Impressions Matter! Let's start with the outside of your home. It's like that old saying, "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." So, make sure your home's exterior says, "Welcome, come on in!" Add some eye-catching flowers to the flower beds, give the front door a good scrub, and make sure the entrance says, "This is a place you want to be." In just a few seconds, a buyer will decide if your home is the one for them, so make sure it passes the test!
"A home that is correctly staged and prepped will sell for thousands of dollars more."
2. Declutter, Declutter, Declutter! We know, it's tough to say goodbye to your beloved knickknacks, but trust us, it'll pay off. Clearing the clutter not only makes your home look more spacious, but it allows buyers to see themselves living there. So, pack away some of the boxes in the garage, remove a few of the family photos, and put away some of the figurines.
3. Stage it to Sell it! In this market, the most beautifully staged home wins. Don't worry, you don't have to be a pro at interior design. That's why we're here! We'll pay for a consultation with the best home stager in town. She'll provide you with a customized list of things you can do to make your home shine, and get top dollar for it.
