5 Things To Do Before You List Your Home On The Market

Thinking of putting your home on the market? Make sure before you do you are well informed on what needs to be done before you can put your home on the market and be ready to sell. 

The following are some steps to take before putting your home on the market:

  1. Depersonalize your home

When you’re getting ready to sell your home, learn how to find the healthy balance between giving your home that warm, "homey" feeling and depersonalizing your home enough that potential buyers can see themselves living in it without feeling as if they are in someone else’s home.

All personal items, knick-knacks, and personal framed photos need to be moved from plane sight. You can leave up photos that give the home an inviting vibe, but you should not have family photos hung up all over the walls. You don't want a prospective buyer to feel as if they are intruding in your home, but rather, make them see how they can make it their own.

  1. Research your local housing market

Knowing the value of your home is very important in the home selling process. Research your area's housing market or contact a real estate agent to help. Things like square footage, location, and features all add to the value of a home. Look at comparable sales in your neighborhood to be able to find a profitable listing price for your home.

  1. Find a home realty agent that best fits you and your home

It is always a good idea to get professional help from a real estate agent when you are listing your home. Go through a series of interviews with several agents to find someone who best fits you and your home. It is important to ask the real estate agents about their previous experiences in your neighborhood, their relationships with buyer agents, and their social media standing. Find a realtor who can provide you with an in-depth marketing plan and a solid strategy for selling your home.

  1. Deep clean your home

First impressions are the most important part of finding a buyer for your property. It is important that you deep clean your home to make a good impression on potential buyers.

  1. Get a pre-sale home inspection done on your home
