Helpful Resources for Those Who Want to Sell a Property

Steps to a Successful Sale!

  • Hire a Real Estate Professional
    Studies show that sellers who use a real estate agent generally get a better price than those who choose to sell the home themselves. We are certified and credentialed real estate professionals. It is our job to stay up to date on the latest market trends, research and analyze comparable data. We implement a marketing and advertising strategy to attract a volume of buyers to your home. We are experts in managing the selling process and we’ll prepare you with relative information at critical junctures in the process. Let us put our experience to work for you to ensure you get the best price for your home in the shortest time possible!
  • Before Your Home is Listed
    Prior to listing your home, you’ll want to ensure everything is in good showing and working condition before buyers start to tour the home. Here are some important things to consider:
  • Start Packing
    Now is the time to put things in storage, clean out the garage/storage areas and start preparing to show your home. Depersonalize your home by removing any family photos, artifacts, or organizational associations. Remember, you want buyers to visualize themselves in your home so reduce visual distractions as much as possible!
  • Painting
    A fresh coat of paint using serene, light or neutral colors is what we generally recommend to our clients. Dark colors can make rooms look smaller; consider relaxing, inviting and or soothing color palettes.
  • Update Carpet or Replace with Flooring
    Clean or replace carpet in areas with heavy wear. Consider laminate, vinyl, or wood flooring as it's less susceptible to staining, trapping dust or allergens than carpet; it can make your home even more attractive and add value.
  • Extra Cleaning
    Keep the interior and exterior clean; fresh, floral, fruity, or spice scents can support buyer’s visual senses.
  • Curb Appeal
    Trim any overgrown bushes, mow the lawn and keep it free of leaves or debris. Curb appeal is essential to inviting potential buyers inside. You want to make a strong first impression!
  • Find Potential Problems Early
    Review the home inspection you received during your buying process. Consider having a professional home inspection and address areas in advance or consider offering credits in the listing. It’s an opportunity to demonstrate transparency to potential buyers and minimize surprises when the buyers have the home inspected by their professionals.
  • Professional Staging
    We have years of experience and training in staging homes to create a cohesive and pleasant experience for a variety of potential buyers. These services and expertise are included in our services.
  • Professional Photographs and Marketing Capturing potential buyers and their agent's attention is critical when selling your home. We understand the looks, lighting, and advertising that will get buyers clicking on your home, scheduling showing appointments and submitting offers. Our professional still, drone and virtual tours are keys to success for our clients. 
  • During the Listing Period
    The Coronavirus pandemic has impacted the real estate industry just as it has every other industry. We offer contactless real estate transactions, virtual showings, and take safety precautions during private showings by wearing mask, having hand sanitizer available for potential buyers that are screened, and cleaning high touch points between showing appointments. We vet potential buyers and eliminate looky loos so only qualified and ready buyers are visiting your home.
