Getting Ready to Sell?
It can be daunting the thought of selling, that is what we are for! Interviewing and selecting a Realtor to work with over a year in advance is something we strongly recommend as a lot of work happens well before we put a for sale sign in the front yard.
Repairs and Curb Appeal
One of the most important things to do before putting your home on the market is to take care of those “easy” tasks you’ve been saying you’ll get to for a while now, like fixing the leaky faucet, painting the patch on the wall, replacing the deck boards and so on, everyone has “that” list. In addition to checking off the items on your home’s to do list, don’t neglect your home’s curb appeal, it is the future buyer’s first impression of your home. De-clutter the yard, rake the leaves, trim the bushes, plant fresh flowers, paint doors and wash windows. By enlisting a Reis Real Estate well before it is time to sell they will be able to help you prioritize your list of things to do.
