Prepare to Sell

You can do a lot to increase the appeal of your property and to create a lasting impact on potential buyers.

What To Do To Prepare:

The following are a couple of factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale:

Curb Appeal
Keeping your landscape pristine, and adding creative touches to your yard, such as colorful annuals, will create an immediate impact on passers-by and potential buyers.

Property Repairs
Simple upgrades such as window repairs, polishing the doorknobs, and a fresh coat of paint in the most frequently used rooms will instantly brighten up the property.

Cleanliness and Staging
I will work with you to assess any changes you may need to make to be ‘show ready’ to improve the staging. If the home is vacant, I can use Virtual Staging to show potential buyers a warmer feel. 

Virtual staging will allow you to be able to show dimension to a room and really helps buyers understand and ‘feel’ the space.

Disclosures and Inspections
I am very familiar with the legal procedures involved in disclosures and are ready to help you develop a thorough disclosure statement beneficial to both you and the buyer, as well as suggest home improvement measures before placing your property on the market (such as termite and pest inspections).

Showtime
Presenting your property is just one of the myriad of things I will do to ensure the sale.  We’ll discuss this more at our initial meeting.
