Seller Guide

Determine the Best Time to Sell

Market conditions fluctuate regularly, and homes generally sell faster during certain times of the year. Research market conditions and compare local, recently sold homes to get an idea of the market conditions. Your agent can help you through this process.

Make Necessary Repairs and Updates

Evaluate the main structures of your home and address any pressing problems, such as leaking pipes, cracked windows, or other concerns that could deter potential buyers.

Clean, Declutter, and Increase Curb Appeal

Rooms will appear larger if there's less stuff in them. Consider renting a storage unit to temporarily store non-essential pieces of furniture and decor. Leave some furniture in the room so potential buyers can imagine where their furniture would go. Additionally, Maintain your lawn, trim your hedges, and consider adding flower beds for a bit of color. Replace your mailbox if it is damaged or in poor condition. Consider painting or replacing your front door.

Take Photos and Set an Asking Price

The majority of potential buyers will see your home online before they see it in person. First impressions are important. One study found that homes with professional listing photos sell for more than their list price. A competitive listing price is one that is similar to listing prices of comparable homes on the market, yet high enough that you'll make a healthy profit. Your agent can help you set a price that maximizes your home's potential.
