If you have been considering selling your current home and purchasing a new one, now is a great time. It is a seller's market, which helps you sell your home quickly and for a price you are happy with. Coupled with the low interest rates both the buyers of your home and you, when searching for a new home, can find in today's market, this unprecedented market is the perfect time to make a move.
Talk to a Real Estate Agent
One of the first things you should do when selling your home is to find a real estate agent. They will know the local area, have experience navigating the sales process, and can help figure out the best (and quickest) way to sell your house!
Clean, Declutter, & Unpersonalize
Before you list your house, it is essential to make sure it is ready to sell. Deep cleaning, decluttering, and removing any personal items is helpful so buyers can picture themselves in the home. A fresh coat of paint is a great, cost-effective way to revitalize your home. Don't neglect the outside of your home when cleaning up! You only get one first impression, so help 'Wow' buyers from the curb by maintaining the appearance of your lawn, landscaping, and front door.
Don't Upgrade Everything!
It can be risky to do a complete overhaul of your house with significant upgrades before listing your home. Sometimes it is better to spend your money on smaller projects that are sure to pay off in the end. Cleaning the grout, replacing door handles, cabinet hardware, and checking the health of your major appliances are all great ways to freshen up your home and ensure there are no major issues when buyers are looking. Your realtor may also have some recommendations on upgrades to ensure you get top dollar for your home.
