Posted: October 04, 2021 by Lisa Stephenson

Whether this is your first home sale or you have sold your home ten times over, there are things you need to know before you put your home up for sale. The home selling process is not always easy and takes preparation beforehand.  These tips will help lessen anxiety and will begin your journey to a successful listing.


Hiring a great Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties Realtor is essential! When selling a home, you should have high expectations that an experienced agent will help you navigate. Do your homework and interview potential agents to find the perfect fit. 


Research your local housing market and set a reasonable price for your home. Pricing your home from the start is extremely important. Avoid making emotional decisions or pricing your home based on your investment. Gathering information, paperwork, and documents will be extremely beneficial to your Realtor.


Improve your home’s curb appeal and get rid of all the clutter. First impressions make a significant impact. Pay attention to your landscaping and provide timely upkeep to maintain a positive impression. Inside the home, remove personal photos, memorabilia and knickknacks. Small repairs and a fresh coat of paint can go a long way. 


If you want to eliminate concerns about your house, getting a pre-listing inspection can help you address issues beforehand.  This can help you decide whether or not to offer a home warranty. In the end, Buyers need to be able to envision themselves in your home, so setting your home up for a successful listing will play to your advantage. 


Whether you are planning to sell your home or are simply reviewing your options, being prepared will help eliminate stress and set you up for a successful listing.
