What Should I Do to Get Ready to List?
What Should I Do to Get Ready to List? Call a Realtor®! Have the Realtor® come through and take a look at the house with their “buyer” eyes. Point out items that need fixing or areas that could stand for (hopefully) minor improvements. Having an agent take a look at the property with “buyer” eyes is helpful for a seller to know what to expect when real buyers come through their home.
The pretties are nice and will make a home sell quick (in this market). Pretties are nicely styled and tastefully staged photos and a well staged home for showings. However, we run into troubles when there are some minor but visible issues like scuffing on walls, worn carpet, asphalt that needs sealing, old windows, older utilities, etc. This may affect price and how people perceive the value of the home.
I know many Sellers this is minor issues and some just don’t want to address because they want out and not necessarily to go about fixing things. However, if you take care of any objections either via price or actually getting the item taken care of; then it will be less headache to deal with down the road.
