What to Know About Preparing Your Home to Sell

There are few things in adult life as complicated as preparing a home for sale. Just kidding. But somehow getting your home ready for a home sale can feel like the most complicated thing in the universe. Every tiny little decision that you make can feel like a make-or-break decision that will be the be all and end of all of your home sale. But if you have the right knowledge and preparation, it can be a breeze. Here are three things that you need to know about preparing your home to sell.

What to Know About Preparing Your Home to Sell: Stage It

The first thing that you should know about preparing your home to sell is that you have to stage your home to get the best price. Staging your home is the process of having a professional decorator and designer furnish and decorate your home for your open house. This will often come with getting listing photographs so that you can show your home at its absolute prettiest. While you may feel staging is an unnecessary upfront cost, a well-staged home can help you increase your home’s eventual sales price by tens of thousands of dollars. It is always worth staging your home to sell it.

Fixing Maintenance Issues

The next thing that you need to know about preparing your home to sell is that you should fix your maintenance issues. Depending on the state of your home it may or may not make sense for you to fix the maintenance issues before selling. Many investors will buy your home regardless of the condition. If your home has thousands of dollars of damage and you can’t fix it all, it may be more worthwhile to sell your home without fixing those maintenance issues to avoid putting up thousands of dollars upfront before selling.

What to Know About Preparing Your Home to Sell: List Your Home Everywhere

The final thing that you need to know about preparing your home to sell is that you should list your home everywhere. The more eyes that you can get on your home listing the better. You can no longer get away with just posting a for sale sign out front of your home and hoping for the best. You should put your home listing on every listing website and service on the internet to get maximal exposure.

Selling your home can feel terribly complicated. But with the right knowledge you can get your home ready to sell easily. Know these three things and you’re ready to prepare your home for the optimal sale.
