First, think about how people are currently searching for available homes. Answer: The internet! Before you post your property online — hopefully with the assistance of an experience Realtor — be sure you have some exceptional photos to accompany your descriptive copy. While a picture says a thousand words, those words can be less than flattering if your photos are showing a cluttered, outdated home. Photos need to be clear and appealing. If you know a professional photographer or someone who has a knack for taking outstanding photographs, this may be the time to call in a favor!
Proper staging of the home is also a necessity if the goal is to see that “For Sale” sign change to a “Sold” sign in the shortest period of time. Easy upgrades like a thorough cleaning and a fresh coat of paint will go a long way. If your furniture and accents have seen better days, you may want to consult with a professional staging company that can give your home a fresh new look with the strategic placement of a handful of eye-catching pieces.
Remember that any additional effort you put into your sale will almost always be rewarded in the end. For more information on preparing your home for a quick and financially satisfying sale, please contact The Olear Team today!
