Once the paperwork is out of the way, the fun begins!
Your Realtor will arrange for photographs to be taken of your home. They’ll also advise you of things you can do to get your home ready for its close-up. Great photographs are important, as they’re usually the first point of contact with potential buyers.
Your Realtor writes a description that highlights all your home’s great features and then adds it, and the photos, to the Multiple Listing Service. That’s a national database of properties for sale that can be accessed by all Realtors and potential buyers.
At some point, your Realtor will likely want to show off your home to prospective buyers with an Open House or private showings. Don’t worry, you won’t have to be there. But you should make sure your place is looking its best. Your Realtor will take it from there, ensuring visitors don’t track mud into your home and leave with a positive impression as well as the information they need to know if they’re interested in buying.
PREPARING TO SELL YOUR HOME
The process of selling your home should start even before you put it on the market!
Your home needs to show well. It needs to appear that it’s been well-kept, and clutter-free.
If your home needs repairs or improvements, do them before putting it on the market. Focus on high return projects like painting, repairing the front step, refinishing cabinets or refreshing the grout in the bathroom. A little investment in time and energy before selling your home can mean more money in your pocket when buyers start making offers.
