Are you ready to get your home on the market before Spring? If so, here’s a little secret: You’ll actually be steps ahead of those who wait, and it’ll put you in a position of competition with buyers for your home!
Here’s three steps to getting an edge on the competition.
As Soon as you can…
1. Find The Perfect Real Estate Agent: The sooner you start, the better. Look for a pro who works with confidence and has a track record for knowing the market. Also, connecting with an agent who is backed by a leading broker and brand, makes a big difference. Don’t fall for those brokers with discount prices. The right brand-backed agent will make sure your home has all the cutting-edge marketing tools to showcase your home in the best possible light!
2. Make a Plan and Prioritize: Once you have your Real Estate partner, you need a solid plan. The best thing you can do is start with a to-do list for everything you need to get your home ready. If you don’t have a list, work with your agent to get their view of the priorities. Then focus on each task, one at a time.
3. Box it Up: This is the hard part. Parting can be such sweet sorrow, but in this step, it’s good to start packing up most of your things. This step will help your home show the best, as clearing clutter is a great way to attract buyers. As an added bonus: sometimes you can get free boxes from local stores in your area, if they have extra’s they are just throwing away.
Ready, Set, Go!
