Getting your house ready to put on the market can seem like an overwhelming task. Simplify the job by tackling one room at a time, with this handy checklist.
Home buyers are going to be much more critical of your home than they are of their own. Most people don't dust their house top to bottom weekly, but they will notice if yours isn't. When your home is on the market it needs to stay in "show condition".. similar to what you would expect of a new model home.
It might start to seem like it will take forever to accomplish, but getting your home ready before going on the market is imperative. You only get one chance to make a first impression, don't make the costly mistake of putting your home on the market before you have had time to finish the "pre-sale" process. Your home should stand out above the rest of the competition because you have gone above what the average home seller would do. Rest assured, all your hard work will pay off at the closing table.
If you are short on time, it's especially important to remember to prioritize this list. Cleaning, packing & de-cluttering should be your top priorities...You want your home to be as clean and "clutter-free" as possible. Opening up floor space by removing excess furniture, de-personalizing, and de-cluttering invites prospective home buyers to imagine themselves in your home. They will feel welcomed and relaxed; hopefully imagining where they might put their things! Consult with the Linda & Ryan Lowe Team early in the process for the best results... As part of our listing package we include 2 hours with a professional stager!
