Seven Strategies for Selling Your home
An Agent’s Understanding of Your Expectations
- What concerns do you have about working with a real estate agent?
- What are your expectations of a real estate agent?
- What would it take for you to refer me to your friends?
Drive-by appearance is critical to get buyers interested in seeing your property. To ensure your house makes the best first impression, you need to:
- Keep the lawn manicured
- Clear walkways
- Trim and maintain landscaping
- Rake leaves
Staging and Interior Condition
The way you live in your house and the way you sell your house are two different things.
- Remove clutter
- Put extra furniture in storage
- Organize closets and cabinets
- Depersonalize Decor
Be Ready to Show
Provide easy access
- Be flexible for showings
- Prospective buyers feel more comfortable inf the seller isn’t home.
