Getting Ready to Sell your Home

Ready to Sell your Home? Take these Important Steps!

Most new sellers are looking to sell their home quickly and for the highest price possible. Easy, right? Well, while you’re looking to list your home you might also be searching for a new place. This makes it easy to focus your attention on your house hunt and not putting your house on the market. Selling your home doesn’t have to be a tricky process but you should be sure you’ve taken all the steps to position your home to sell quick and for the price you want. Follow these simple steps and you’ll be on the right track to get your home sold… fast!

The Price is Right

When you’re selling your home, pricing is going to be one of the most important steps in the process. Priced too high and you might be regretting it when it won’t sell and buyers are alarmed with how long it’s been on the market. Priced too low? It will sell quickly and you’ll soon realize there was money left on the table. Luckily, when you engage a quality real estate agent this is all taken care of. Not only are they experts in your area and how homes are being priced, they will run all the comps for your neighborhood.

Fix it Up!

Make sure your home is looking its best before you start showing it to prospective buyers. Touch up your wall paint or fill in a few cracks in the ceiling. Also, start working on fixing anything that would potentially require repairing after the inspection. Think about replacing appliances that are broken or can be inexpensively updated. If you’re on a budget, your real estate agent can give you an idea of what areas you should really focus on improving that will make the biggest impact.

Store the Family Photos

Not only should you put away all the knicknacks, souvenirs, and extra furniture, you should attempt to de-personalize the place. You want potential buyers to be able to picture themselves in your home so put away all the family photos, albums and personal touches. Feel free to pack them away in containers under the bed or in the tops of closets. Ultimately, all your excess home décor items will make the place feel more cluttered and small, so the more downsizing you can do the better. Rent a storage unit if you have too much. Selling your home quickly will more than make up for the small cost of a storage unit.

Get Ready to Show Off

In addition to cutting your home’s clutter there are a few of those special additions that can make all the difference when you start showing it to potential buyers. Make a habit of having fresh flowers throughout your home. If you have cats or dogs, be sure you’re getting rid of those pet smells – even if you have to spend a little money to get the carpets cleaned. Have your windows freshly cleaned and open the drapes. You may even think of removing outdated blinds completely. Also, be sure to keep that lawn perfectly manicured. Anything that will help your potential buyers imagine themselves in the paradise that is your home will help you move forward with a sale as quickly as possible.

The most important way to prepare for selling your home quick is to find the best possible real estate agent. At AwardRealty, a talented agent will understand the Arizona market and properly price your home. Good agents will also help you pinpoint the areas where you should make repairs and improvements to sell your place quicker, so you can focus on buying your next home.
