Pricing Your Property Determining price is one of the most critical steps in preparing your home for sale. A well priced home often sells quickly once it is put on the market. When your home is priced right from the outset, you maximize your opportunity of reaching the most qualified buyers and obtaining top dollar.
Tips for Preparing Your Home For Sale•Tidy up the grounds, porches and garage. Keep the lawn trimmed and edged. Make sure thatyour yard is clean.•Your front door adds to that first impression – besure it is scrubbed or repainted if necessary.•Wash windows and clean/dust window coverings.•If any decorating or painting is needed (especiallyin the kitchen), do it now! Twenty dollars worth ofpaint will make a much larger difference in thesales price.•Bathrooms help sell homes. Make this roomsparkle.
•Illumination is like a welcome sign. Replacebulbs and turn on the lights.•Wash dishes, make beds, put away clothes andstraighten up.•Keep pets out of the way during showings –many people are allergic.•Leave the showing to the salesperson. Thesalesperson knows the buyer’s requirements andcan best emphasize the features of your home.
•Don’t discuss anything about the sale with apotential customer. Let your Agent discuss price,terms, possession and other items concerningthe Sale. Your agent is qualified to bringnegotiations to a favorable conclusion.•Never apologize for appearance, it eitherdistracts or accentuates the problem.•Pack away valuables, store extra furniture,knick-knacks and medicines.
