Livonia Michigan Prepare Your Home for Sale Video

  If you are thinking of selling your Livonia Michigan home or know someone who is you have come to the right place!  We have found that proper preparationwell before you put your home on the market has increased the sellers results in just about every category we are tracking.  We are tracking on market time or days on market, average sales price for type of home and home sales success rates.  If you are looking to put your Livonia home on the market try these tips before you put it out for sale.

  1. Have all pictures taken and ready to go in at the same time as the listing
  2. Have your price of your home set properly--you may even have to go so far as getting an appraisal
  3. If video is being used, have it complete and ready to be used right away upon listing
  4. Have all little work projects complete and have home ready for showings
  5. Consider a small budget for updating and repairs--discuss these with your agent
  6. Curb appeal, curb appeal, curb appeal make the outside shine to get lookers inside
  7. Be mentally prepared for what is to come--make sure to take a few minutes to speak with your agent about things to come. 

  We have found our listings go to so many places automatically that having the pictures in right away can make life a bit easier and that many websites will properly display the pictures.  Don't screw around with way improper pricing--If you can't no way shape or form come up with the price on a CMA or Appraisal it more than likely is not properly priced.  Video has been great make sure to do a few quality videos of the property.  Don't wait for the little things to be fixed, home buyers can turn into home inspectors just over something like a running toilet.  Consider a small budget for possibly painting, carpet or flooring or general updating to make the home show much better.  Last on this list but very important, speak with your agent about common issues seen in your market place.  We in Livonia Michigan are currently seeing in our market place:  appraisal issues, lender financing issues, home buyer slow to make decisions and loads of short sales and bank foreclosures.
