While it is rarely appropriate to undertake huge renovation projects before listing your home, there are some things that may need to be accomplished. Minor repairs and some improvements can have a positive return on investment. If they need to be done, get them done. Landscaping, paint, decluttering, and staging are almost always recommended. In other circumstances, you might need to repair or refresh some flooring or counter-tops. Learn more about our staging and photography services by clicking here.
Getting the price right is very important to maximizing your value. If too high, you could be looking at an extended marketing period, which can lead buyers to wonder, “What’s wrong with this home, why isn’t it selling?”.

There are many considerations when pricing a home: location, inventory in the area, competition. Click here to learn about our Effective Pricing Strategy.
Allowing people to tour your home is imperative to selling it and maximizing its value. It may sound obvious, but after a couple of weeks on market, sellers can become a little less accommodating.
