With the start of the New Year, thoughts naturally turn to change. If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to sell your home, then making the right resolutions can help you sell your home quickly and for the best possible return.

 

Top 7 New Year’s Resolutions for Home Sellers

  1. Move Up Spring Cleaning–Time to do your spring cleaning now.  Declutter, depersonalize, and make the home look roomier.

  2. Stage Your Home–Whether you hire someone or do it yourself, this is the time to rearrange your furniture to make your rooms look bigger and brighter.  Good news on the horizon for you....I offer COMPLIMENTARY staging (including complete pantry organization) with all listings! 

  3. Think it Through–  Before you spend money on renovations and upgrades, think carefully and don’t overspend by guessing.

  4. Take Care of Neglected Repairs–This is a great time to hire a handy man or breakout the tool belt to take care of deferred maintenance and take care of minor repairs.

  5. Hire a Qualified Real Estate Agent–Hiring the RIGHT real estate agent is critical to your success. 

  6. Check out the Competition–Go see homes listed for sale in your area and adjust your timing and pricing based on the market.  Your agent will be able to guide you in the right direction, but it makes such a difference to see your competition yourself as well! 

  7. Prepare  Mentally–Selling a home can be stressful.  Be prepared for low offers, picky buyers, drop-by agents and odd terms. Prepare yourself now so you will take them in stride when you’re on the market.
