If you've called us, it's likely because you're ready to embark on the journey of selling your house, and determining its worth is probably at the forefront of your mind. In this series, we'll guide you through the essential steps to ensure a successful and lucrative home sale.
Step 1: Preparation is Key
When we first meet, there are a few crucial items we'll need from you. Firstly, your real property report. We'll review it together to understand its current status and formulate a plan moving forward. Secondly, prepare a comprehensive list of any upgrades made to your home in the last five years, as well as major updates beyond that timeframe (think shingles, furnace, etc.). Lastly, mortgage information is vital. Know your payout and penalty, as these details are crucial for the next steps.
Step 2: Walkthrough Wisdom
Next, we embark on two walkthroughs of your home. The first is from a buyer's perspective, allowing us to make valuable suggestions for changes or upgrades that could enhance the home's marketability. The second walkthrough is with you, focusing on the upgrades you've made. We'll take detailed notes on your favorite aspects of the house, incorporating them into our marketing strategy to maximize the sale value.
Remember, what matters to you also matters to potential buyers. Take our suggestions seriously—we've successfully sold 151 homes last year, and our experience guides us on what needs to be done to impress buyers.
Step 3: Ready, Set, Stage
We bring our infamous preparation and staging checklist to guide you through your entire home. Making notes and checking off items will ensure your home is not only ready for sale but also ready for captivating pictures. With 90% of buyers beginning their journey online, presenting your home in the best light is crucial. Our goal is to attract as many buyers as possible, so let's make your home shine.
