Get Started on the Right Foot!

  • Why Hire an Agent?
    Studies show that sellers who use a Realtor generally get 23% higher asking 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 the 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!
  • Professional Staging
    Consider hiring a professional stager to help give buyers the appeal they’re looking for.
  • During the Listing Period
    You’ll need to plan to have something to do during the times potential buyers visit your home. If initial offers don’t meet your expectations, don’t dismiss them immediately. You may need to consider lowering your asking price if months go by with few or no offers. However, by working with your agent, you will be able to arrive at a price that works for all parties.
  • 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 debris. 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.
