Listing a home for sale can feel daunting to many. Generally speaking, most sellers need about a month to get their homes “show ready.” Here is our checklist for getting your house ready to list.
Make sure the front porch is welcoming! This is the buyer’s first impression.
It may sound like common sense, but be sure to clean the entire home!
Make them appear larger! This is a wonderful time to purge and donate.
Use common sense to prepare your home to sell. While it does take time to prepare your home, at the end of the day, it will make for a much smoother sales process. You certainly don’t need to do everything on this list, but use it as a guide.
We have a list of vendors for almost everything on this list if you want to hire some of this out. Give us a call at 704-368-3380 for more information.
Once you have completed the list above, take a look at the house from a street view. Do you see anything that could be changed or fixed that would help sell this home? If not, then you are ready!
