Thinking of selling?


The first step in selling your home is to take an objective survey of your home and think about what might improve the appeal of your home to the buyers of today.  You of course love your home and decor, but some buyers might not be able to mentally place themselves in your home if it is too personalized or possibly too cluttered.  Often even a fresh coat of paint will dramatically improve the appeal of your home.   Your home might be relatively new and might not need any changes but it is always a good questions to start with.


The entry of a home is very important.   It can present the potential buyer with a sense of welcome or worry.   Signs of wear and tear on a home give the impression that a home is not cared for and often lead a buyer to wonder what else in the home may have been neglected.  A home that looks fresh and free from clutter invites the buyer in and prevents potential negative thoughts from the buyer when they first walk in.



After thinking about how your home may look to buyers, you will want to think about a market price.  Keeping up with commentary from a variety of reputable publications helps you keep a pulse the economy and other trends which can effect real estate.
