Preparing To Sell
What To Do To Prepare:
The following are a couple of factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale:
1. Curb Appeal
Keeping your landscape pristine, and adding creative touches to your yard, such as colorful annuals, will create an immediate impact on potential buyers, especially in the professional photos we feature on our website.
2. 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. Sometimes simple repairs can help your house sell more quickly or sell for more – sometimes repairs are reflected in a reasonable listing price to help attract motivated buyers.
3. Cleanliness & Staging
Keep your property uncluttered, sweet-smelling and well-lit from top-to-bottom. Pay attention to details: put away the kitty litter, place a vase of fresh flowers near the entryway, pop a batch of cinnamon rolls in the oven, have your carpets cleaned. Your agent will scan the property before it is listed for sale to see how you can improve the staging of your property. Simple actions, like reducing the amount of family pictures on the wall can help a potential buyer see your house as their house.
4. Disclosures & Inspections
We are 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.
Presenting your property to potential buyers is a job that we will take care of for you. Your Coastal agent will know what information will be most useful in representing your interests when speaking with prospective buyers.
