Are you looking to sell your home? Here are some common steps to selling your home:

*Prepare your home for sale. Well before you’re ready to plant that “For Sale” sign in your front yard, there is work to be done to prepare your home for sale. Remember how keen your eye was to every small detail and defect in the houses you saw s a buyer? Start making the obvious repairs today - even if you don’t plan to sell until a year from now. These repairs can cost money and take time. Plus fixing it now, will allow you to enjoy the results before it’s time to move out. Inside and outside, work on reducing the clutter. When it comes time to show your home, less will mean more. Potential buyer’s don’t want to see how your closets overflow with clothes, how every room feels cramped with furniture, or how the yard is difficult to maneuver with that rusty swing set in the way. So downsize now; it not only will make the preparation for showing your home easier, it will also make packing for your move faster.

*Price your home. There are a number of factors that will affect the success of your home sale. They include: location of the home, interest rates, economic conditions, time of year, condition of the home, marketing the home, terms of the sale, and accessibility of the home. Your real estate professional can help you evaluate these items, as well as go over the current market evaluating comparative properties to help you price your home realistically.
