How To Get Your House Ready To Sell

Looking to sell your home in Spokane, WA? Haven Real Estate Group can help! Here are some tips 

Make updates and repairs to improve your home's value-
So you don't turn off potential home buyers it is imperative to repair any leaking pipes, cracked windows, roof damage, or any other issues that might be of concern. 

Rooms will definitely look larger if less belongings are crammed in the room. Don't remove everything, some home homebuyers like to see a nicely staged home when they walk through the door. 

Focus on curb appeal-
Make sure you give your homes landscaping a quick clean up. Put in new bark, trim the bushes and consider replacing your mailbox if it's damaged. A new modern door might even help. 

Meet with a Realtor-
Meeting with a Realtor is crucial. A Realtor can guide you through this process and take away your worries. We can also help you negotiate and get you top dollar for your home.

Now that you have a Realtor on your side have them schedule a photoshoot of your home and land. First impressions are very important, most potential home buyers will see your home online first. Make sure you pick a good photographer or ask your Realtor what they suggest. 

Decide on a competitive asking price-
A competitive listing price is one that is similar to listing prices of comparable homes on the market (or those that have recently sold), yet high enough that you’ll make a healthy profit.

Home tours and showings-
Let your Realtor know when it’s ok to let people into your home to see it and decide on a date for an open house if that’s what your Realtor recommends.

Let your Realtor take it from there-
They’ll put your home on the multiple listing service in your area, which will get it on sites like Zillow, Realtor.com, and in front of other Realtors. They’ll also order and place a “for sale” sign in your yard, so passerby's will know. They’ll also start to market the property to potential buyers, via flyers, online advertising, and other means.

Let's chat more and get your home on the market!
