Preparing Your Home for the Market

Three things to focus on when preparing your home for the market.

Now that it's 2023, we keep getting asked this question: “What should I do to sell my home in this market?” This market has changed, and things have softened a bit, but you can still get a great price. To help you with that, here are the three main things you have to focus on:

1. Make a good first impression. Look at the outside of your home. Have new stuff in the flower beds, whether it's pine straw or woodchips, and put in flowers that will pop this spring. Also, pay attention to the front door and clean it. The buyer will decide if they want that house or not in just a few seconds, so make sure your home will pass that test. 

"A home that is correctly staged and prepped will sell for thousands of dollars more."

2. Declutter your space. This doesn't necessarily mean depersonalized. You don't need to take down all your family photos, but I would recommend moving boxes to the garage and taking some of the knickknacks down from the shelves. If some of the clutter is removed, it allows the buyer to see themselves in the home.

3. Stage the inside of your home. In this market, having the most beautiful home makes all the difference. Fortunately, you don't have to know how to stage on your own. When you work with us, we pay for a consultation with the best home stager in Charleston. She will provide you with a customized list of things you can do to sell for top dollar! 

There is a lot that goes into selling a home, but we’re here with you every step of the way. These three things will get you going in the right direction and earn you more money for your home. If you have any questions, reach out to us by phone call or email.
