Top Tips for Home Sellers

Make sure you review these pro tips for home sellers before you list your home:

Consider Smart Improvements

Many times, sellers are eager to provide lots of updates to enure they maximize value. However, some updates may not bring much of a return. It's important to discuss these things with your REALTOR®, first.

Consider Multiple Agents

Different agents will have different strategies for marketing your home. Know the differences before you make your decision.

Consider Providing an Occupancy Permit

Many municipalities require occupancy inspections and permits to ensure the home has been kept in livable condition. With this in mind, consider obtaining this before listing. That way, you may be alerted to problems that could cause the deal to hit a snag.

Consider Professional Photography

With so much home searching done online, make sure your home looks as good as possible to all those people viewing your home from their couch with professional pictures that really show off the space!

Consider an Open House

Depending on a home, the open house could drive up demand for your home, which could mean more offers of asking price or above!

Consider Staging

Staging a house can really help show off its assets. It can also help hide awkward spaces that may make buyers think twice about writing an offer!
