Preparation is the key to success when it comes to putting your home on the market. If you are thinking of selling your home and want to maximize its value, you should start to prepare at least two months
prior. This process takes time, and a stress-free selling experience requires some elbow grease.
  • Your home needs to be ready to show. You may be asking yourself where to start and staging a home can be incredibly stressful. It might be beneficial to bring in consultants and/or stagers to professionally arrange your home in a way that will attract potential buyers.

  • Do a pre-purge. Before your home is ready to be shown to potential buyers, you need to do a cleaning and decluttering. People will be looking through your cabinets and closets, and if they are messy and unorganized, it can turn them away. Putting things in storage that you might need in your next home can be helpful.

  • Consider an early inspection. This means having an inspector come in and identify things that could be potential issues later in the process. By getting a head start and addressing them before putting your home on the market, you are setting yourself up for a much smoother transaction.

  • Bring in a fresh pair of eyes. Recruit a family member or friend to check out your home after you’ve done all your preparation can be helpful. Be sure to pick the person you know will tell it like it is. Honesty is the key to success!
Once you’ve checked these items off your list, keep in mind that it takes about two weeks from when you decide to put your house on the market to when it’s officially listed. You will need photographers, videos, and all marketing to be finished beforehand.
The bottom line is that the earlier you prepare for your home to be put on the market, the quicker the turnaround will be. A seasoned agent who does this multiple times a year has all the resources you need to get things done and avoid any potential glitches. In this case, experience makes the difference between a bumpy road and smooth sailing.
