Resources for Sellers
Get Started on the Right Foot!
- Why Hire an Agent?
Studies show that sellers who use a real estate agent generally get a better price than those who choose to sell the home themselves. As an agent, it is my job to stay up to date on the latest market trends and fluctuations. Utilizing an agent means no surprises during the selling process, as you will have the latest information at critical junctures in the process. Let me put my experience to work for you to ensure you get the best price for your home!
- Before Your Home is Listed
Prior to listing your home, you’ll want to ensure everything is in good showing condition before buyers start to tour the home. Here are some important things to consider:
- Start Packing
Now is the perfect time to sort out unwanted items for donations and put things in storage, clean out the basement, closets and garage and start preparing to show your home. Remove any family photos, collections or personal items. Remember, you want buyers to see themselves in your home!
- Spot Paint
Touch up both interior and exterior paint.
- Update Carpet
Clean or replace the carpet in areas with heavy wear.
- Extra Cleaning
Keep the interior and exterior clean and odor-free.

Trim any overgrown bushes, mow the lawn and keep it free of leaves or snow. Make sure the front of the home is clean and appealing. You want to make a strong first impression!
