Preparing to Sell Your Home

7 Aug 2013 · TrustLarry News Team

MRU_4341bQuestions on pricing, staging, current market value, and all the steps involved in a sale are bound to bounce through your brain if you’re thinking of placing your home on the market.

The right agent can walk you through the entire process and assist you in a relatively stress-free sale of your home, while understanding your timeline. And though you may be anxious to sell while home prices are higher, take the time to walk through the process with an agent to make the best sale.

We take extra time and care to prepare every one of our listings for the market, from new coats of paint to floor polishing and furniture staging. The extra effort can make or break a buyer’s impression of a house. It’s also essential to resolve common objections even after showings have begun. At one of our Victoria Park listings, for example, we found buyers repeatedly voicing the same concerns about backyard privacy (see the “before” photo to the left). Adding quite a bit of tall landscaping solved the issue immediately.

With recent increases in home pricing, it is more important than ever to make sure your home pricing is on par with your area. No matter the condition of your home, with record low inventories, you may find your home attracts more interest than you had planned. We’ve provided a few tools to track market stats for your zip code or neighborhood here, but feel free to give us a call anytime to discuss the value of your home with you.
