Is it Spring Yet?
Well, no. Just look outside. We’re in our gray and wet days of winter.
But now is the time for Seller’s (is that you?) to get ready for the Spring Real Estate Market!
If you want to command a higher sale price, you must prepare your home!
Homes that are clean, appealing, and in top shape simply sell for more than properties in less desirable conditions. Buyers know the home won't require a ton of work upon move-in, and for that, they're willing to pay a premium.
A prepped home is also just more marketable. That usually means a faster sale, and maybe even a bidding war -- which equals more profits at the closing table.
One of our jobs as your broker is to help you prepare your home to hit the market. Some homes need a “spruce up” on the interior and exterior, which could involve painting, cleaning, new fixtures, power washing, landscaping and such. While some homes need extensive TLC which goes beyond mere cosmetics to redoing flooring, cabinetry and countertops, bathroom upgrades, roofing and more.
We can help with all of these things, getting the bids, meeting the contractors, coordinating staging, and all the necessary things that need to be done for your home to be presented in it’s best light.
BUT this all takes time - to be prepared for the Spring Real Estate Market you need to be talking to us now!
We would also love to speak with you about the many ways we work toward the successful sale of your home-- providing knowledge about what buyers are thinking, what the current market value of your home is, how many homes are moving during any given week, how many buyers are out looking, effectively marketing your property, and more. Please feel free to reach out to us anytime!
