Are you thinking of selling your home soon?  Here’s how to get your house in amazing shape before you put it on the market.  We know that selling your home can be a stressful task and sometimes, it’s hard to know where to start. Here’s a handy checklist to make your house look like the best on the block and entice potential buyers.

Clear out clutter

Cluttered homes don’t photograph well and they certainly don’t entice buyers.  If you know you want to sell soon, it’s best to start clearing out clutter now.  That means removing items that you don’t want or need and donating, selling, or throwing them away.  This will help your house appear cleaner, larger, and more desirable.

Do some simple renovating

You probably shouldn’t take on a major remodel right before moving but small updates here and there can make a huge difference, especially if your home is dated.  Update worn flooring, replace windows, and repaint the walls in neutral hues.  You should also make sure the house is in good working order and there are no outstanding problems before placing your home on the market.

Work on your curb appeal

Most buyers will decide to take a deeper look at your house based solely on their first impression of the exterior.  Make your yard look amazing by cutting the grass, trimming the trees, and cleaning off the roof.  You can make your doorway appear warm and inviting with friendly and simple décor and by adding flowers or flower boxes to the front.

Work with a professional stager

A stager can show you the tips and tricks to make your home look as beautiful as possible.  The Newman Group has professional stagers who will go through your home, room by room, and help you adequately stage your house for the selling process.

Get professional photos taken

A Realtor snapping photos on a smartphone isn’t going to cut it in this competitive market.  Help your house stand out in the right way by taking advantage of our professional photography services.  Once a home has been staged and photographed, it is then ready to be marketed heavily to the public.  Our marketing team will make your home stand out in the best way.

Prep for showings

Get your house ready for showings by doing a deep cleaning throughout the entire home.  Don’t forget to wash the walls, create a fresh scent, and make those windows sparkle.

Price it right

Finally, you’ll want the home to be priced correctly in order to do well on the market.  Only a professional Realtor can help you price your home adequately and ensure that you get top dollar and a quick sale.

Preparing your house for the real estate market is no easy task, but you’ll be glad you did it when your home sells quickly and for more than the asking price.

These are just a few considerations to make, but we want to help you navigate through this process and accomplish your goals. You can be sure that the Newman Group will make it happen !
