Getting ready to sell your house? Then it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get to work!

So before you put your house on the market, browse through this guide of things to do in preparation. Some of these tips are surprisingly easy, while others might require a bit more elbow grease. But they’re bound to pay off once buyers start oohing and ahhing over your place–and hopefully–make them write up a great offer! These guides includes super helpful resources, checklists and tips on the best ways to really prep your home for the market!
Why Consider STAGING?
Staging a home is a strategic marketing tool used by sellers to help buyers imagine themselves living in your home and fall in love with their property. Staging is more than just putting a new welcome mat in front of the door and getting new throw pillows – when done correctly it can help a home sell for more money in a shorter amount of time.
This guide walks you through some easy staging tips and includes a super helpful checklist to help you get the most “bang” for your buck!
the HOME SELLING process
SCHEDULE A HOME SELLING CONSULTATION-This is where I learn your story, what you love about your home, why you bought it (at one time, you were the ideal buyer for your house – I use this info to find a new buyer)! We will talk about upgrades & changes that you have made to the home, your timeframe, and create a pre-listing action plan. I will also go over my pricing and marketing strategies with you, and review your estimated net proceeds (aka, the good stuff)!
Once you have completed your to-do list (any necessary repairs, painting, decluttering, deep cleaning, etc.), we will get started with making the magic happen! I will coordinate any staging and schedule for professional photography and/or videography. We will go over how to best prepare for showings (I even have a checklist for this)!
ON THE MARKET
This is where it can get very interesting! Depending on the pricing strategy that we have followed, we can see several showings right away, especially if we are in a competitive price range. With the ever-evolving housing market that we are currently in, it is difficult to predict just how much attention your home will receive, BUT we all the prep-work that we do will help set us up for success!
CONTRACT & CLOSING
Once we have accepted an offer on your home, there will be lots of stuff going on behind the scenes! The buyer will be getting inspections done, the buyer’s lender will be completing appraisal, underwriting & final credit approvals, the title company will be researching the deed and issuing their commitment for insurance. It sounds like a lot, but don’t worry! I’m here to oversee and guide you through the entire process, manage the timeline, handle any negotiations and be your advocate through it all!
