PRIDE in Selling a Home

Real Estate Agent with Samsel & Associates 0790808



Once you've made the decision to sell your home, there are 5 steps you need to make before you put your home on the market.

  1. Pick - Interview real estate agents. Most sellers hire the first agent they interview, while others continue looking. You want to choose an agent with a vibrant marketing plan that you trust
  2. Repair - Make any necessary repairs in your home before you list it! Things like leaky roofs, dead light bulbs, and broken windows need to be in working condition before you show your home.
  3. Improve - Depending on your time frame and budget, make home improvements that will increase the value of your home. There are some home improvements - like a new front door, for example - that will help to sell your home faster and will increase the price you get for your home.
  4. Declutter - Throw away, or store, anything and everything that you absolutely don't need. The more stuff in your home, the less likely it will sell. Consider staging your home to eliminate rooms that are confusing (a bedroom being used as an office, for example).
  5. Educate yourself. Here is a link to a free video called"Preparing your home to sell." It's filled with information that can help you make decisions about what to do. Research market conditions in your neighborhood so that you can make an intelligent decision about pricing your home.  

When you sell your home, be sure you tell everyone that you sold it with PRIDE!

Wayne & Jean, excellent post, and if Sellers do #1, and interview until they find the Professional that will get the job done and you can trust, they will guide the Sellers through the rest!
