Well, it’s that time of year again, when I start receiving calls from clients and friends who are intending to make a move this year. What do I do to prepare for a smooth move? How can I prepare my home to realize the greatest gain when I sell? How am I going to find my next home; what options are even out there right now? Never fear! I am here to help and my team is ready to help you in 2022! This month, we will discuss top tips for listing prep and we will get to your other questions over the next two newsletters (or you are welcome to give me a call to discuss, if you are anxious to get rolling!).
Top Tips for Prepping Your Home for Sale:
1) You know it… declutter! This is the least costly and most impactful improvement you can make. packing up items you don’t need right now (especially small knickknack items and antiques), putting away anything "extra," and removing extra furniture is a way to make your spaces look bigger and avoid distracting potential buyers.
2) Next… De-Home! Do your best to "de-home the home" by simplifying décor (think Pottery Barn). Take your personal style out as much as possible unless you have a very neutral style (again, think Pottery Barn). If you need help with artwork or rearranging ideas, just give me a call and we can work together to get you prepped and ready!
3) Super important… Call me and let’s do a preliminary listing conversation. I am happy to answer all of your questions and make sure that your listing process is simple, smooth and profitable. Don’t hesitate to reach out today and let’s get started.
We will chat next month about buying options and what the market outlook is for 2022. I guarantee you; if you decide to move, we will find a wonderful home for you and your family. In the meantime, let us know what you need when you need it; we are happy to help!
