Listing Preparation Tips

Be proactive by arranging for a pre-sale home preparation work. An frequencies of showing will give you good indication, how Buyers or Realtor are showing interest in your property. In comparison to other listed properties, well prepared properties sell quickly and stay in market for very less time, depending on the condition of market.

Extensive Cleaning Job

If your are busy with other stuff or cannot do it yourself, hire a cleaning company. Avoid cooking food with strong smell, if possible, do not cook at home during listing period. From ceiling fans to floors and everything in between, clean your home until it sparkles.

Increase Your Curb Appeal

Don't spend all time indoor. Attractive and clean exterior will make buyers think you've well maintained your home from inside as well. Sweep up and consider a nice entry door mat. Fix broken entrance light. Cut grass and maintain your lawn.

Remove clutter and depersonalize

Buyers want to envision their belongings in your home. Clean up by renting a storage unit for knickknacks, photos, extra furniture and other personal items. Storage space is a huge selling point, and if your closets are stuffed to the brim, buyers will think you don’t have enough of it.

Staging Kitchen, Living, Family & Bedrooms

Keep off daily use appliances and other containers off the countertop. Set out fresh flowers in the dining room, putting a bowl of fruit in the kitchen, upgrading your bathroom towels, and putting new hotel-like linens on the bed. Carefully edit the furniture and arrangement of other items in a room so that each space has a defined purpose.

Make Necessary Repairs

Keep your home to be in the best condition possible. Take care of major defects like broken windows or a leaky roof that could discourage buyers. Replace faded house numbers so buyers can see them from the curb.
