Resources for Sellers

Get Started on the Right Foot!

Why Hire an Agent?
Studies show that sellers who use a real estate agent generally get a better price than those who choose to sell their home themselves. As an agent it is our job to stay up to date on the latest market trends and fluctuations. Utilizing an agent means no surprises during the selling process, as you will have latest information at critical junctures in the process. Let us put our experience to work for you to ensure you get the best price for your home

Before Your Home is Listed
Prior to listing your home, you’ll want to ensure everything is in good showing condition before buyers start to tour the home. Here are some important things to consider:

  • Start Packing
    Now is the time to put things in storage, clean out the basement and garage and start preparing to show your home. Remove any family photos or personal items. Remember, you want buyers to see themselves in your home!
  • Spot Paint
    Touch up both interior and exterior paint.
  • Update Carpet
    Clean or replace carpet in areas with heavy wear.
  • Extra Cleaning
    Keep the interior and exterior clean and odor free.
  • Curb Appeal
    Trim any overgrown bushes, mow the lawn and keep it free of leaves or snow. Make sure the front of the home is clean and appealing. You want to make a strong first impression!
  • Find Potential Problems Early
    Once you’ve completed these steps you may want to hire someone to perform a pre-listing inspection. Buyers will be hiring professional inspectors too; this is your chance to find and address problems before it’s time to sell.

Professional Staging

We offer staging services as part of our listing package. We have accessories, artwork and furniture packages that will be set up in your home.

Preparing For Showings
Our appointment service will set up appointments following the guidelines that you have outlined with us. It is always a good idea to plan activities during showings so a Buyer can take their time and be able to tour your home, privately with their Realtor. Have all lights on, blinds and curtains open, and have some soft music playing that will help create a relaxing, homey atmosphere.
