Thinking of listing your home in 2024 but aren’t sure where to start? Selling your home can be an exciting time and with a bit of prep, you’ll be ready to get your home on the market in no time. Check out these tips for a few ideas on how to get started and make preparation one of the smoothest steps on your home selling journey!
First Things First:
Start by touching base with your Shorewest, REALTORS® agent. They’ll help you to understand market trends and ensure that no matter what is going on with real estate, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge and support you need to find success!
Add Some Curb Appeal:
No matter what time of year it is, curb appeal is important when selling your home! Pick up fallen branches from the winter, add some decor around your front door, do whatever it is that you think will make your home give a fantastic first impression before potential buyers ever walk inside!
Declutter Like a Pro:
Potential buyers want to be able to see how they could use the space in your home, and that isn’t always easy if the space is overfilled! Sort through the excess stuff and choose to donate or sell anything that you don’t want to keep. Buyers will be happy to see just how much space your home truly has to offer!
Tackle Your To-Do’s:
Remember all the tasks you’ve been procrastinating on? Time to get them done! Changing light bulbs, fixing faucet drips and getting your carpet cleaned are all examples of simple things you can do to make your home appear more attractive to potential buyers. A well-maintained home not only sells better but feels better, too!
No matter what you do in order to prep your home to sell, remember that first impressions are one of the most important parts of selling your home. Take some time to spruce, clean and fix anything that you need to before you officially put your home on the market, but be sure to keep your real estate team in the loop too! Once you’ve gotten everything the way you’d like it, they’ll be ready to spring into action and help your home sell as soon as possible.
