Looking to sell? Contact me today to go through the complete process. Here are a few tips just to get started!

Make small fixes

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes, and correct the flaws that are most noticeable or can be relatively easily fixed—from repairing cracks in the walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling creaky hinges.

Clean and Declutter

Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks, and “stuff”—toss it, donate it, give it away, sell it at a yard sale, or put it into storage—so the house seems more spacious and buyers can imagine themselves in it.

Decide to go with a Pre-List Inspection

It may save you time, especially with older homes, to identify—and potentially solve—problems your buyer’s inspection will discover later.

Be vigilant about on going maintenance

From the moment you start showing your house, keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens weeded, rooms spotless and clutter-free.

Be ready for showing days

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of cookies for the homey smell, open the drapes, keep pets out of sight, and leave during the allotted showing time.
