Want to get a head start?
Here are a few things YOU can do:
- Prepare your home to sell. Don’t neglect to fix things that are broken. Consider a pre-inspection. “A pre-inspection will allow you the time to remedy concerns before your home is listed.” Link: https://amerispecne.com/home-inspection-services/pre-sale-inspections-for-sellers/
- Investigate the local real estate market. Find out what homes are selling in your area, but don’t just look at the price tag and the numbers of bedrooms and bathrooms they are offering a potential buyer. Review listing photos and take note of recent upgrades and additional features that are attractive to buyers. Walk-in pantries and closets, new appliances and a master bath with a walk-in shower aren’t the only things that make a buyer bite.
- Write questions and concerns down. Before you call an agent, organize your thoughts. Your agent is there to help guide you through this exciting process. As you do your research and questions come up, keep a notepad handy--there are many thoughts and emotions that go into selling a home; don’t let any of your questions be left out.
Knowing where your listing stands will help you make important decisions like “Do I upgrade the appliances? Should I give a little more attention to my curb appeal?”
