Tips for Sellers

  1. Clear the Clutter
    • It’s important for a prospective buyer to be able to see themselves living in the home. Before listing your home for sale, it’s a great idea to clear the clutter around your home. This will also help alleviate stress for you before showing appointments by starting out with a clean slate.
  2. Box up Non-essentials
    • Boxing up items that you don’t use every day will help you clear the clutter for your listing, and get a head start on the move! A few items you may consider pre-packing could be books, off-season clothing, and holiday dishes.
  3. Know the Market
    • In order to have your own expectations in check, it is so important to know the numbers in your area. Before listing your home, your REALTORĀ® should go over area comps for your home. They should be able to tell you how much homes have recently sold for, and how long they were on the market. This information will help you and your REALTORĀ® best gauge your home’s value.
  4. Make Repairs
    • Minor repairs and improvements inside and outside of your home will boost your curb appeal and alleviate stress in the long run by knocking out possible inspection repair requests before closing.
  5. Communication is Key
    • While your home is listed, it’s important to keep an open mind when your REALTORĀ® or prospective buyers offer feedback. Having realistic expectations and taking feedback into consideration will make the listing process much smoother.
