3 Things To Do Before Listing Your Home With An Agent

Real Estate Blog

If you are anxious to sell your house fast, you might think that the best thing for you to do would be to get in touch with a real estate agent right away. However, there are some things that you will want to do around your property before you sign the listing agreement. This way, you will be able to get the most money for your home, and the agent will be able to begin listing it right away.

1. Declutter Your Space

This can seem like a major project to do, especially if you have been living in your home for many years. Things can seem to collect in the corners and in the closets seemingly out of nowhere. However, it is imperative that you are getting this work done. The more clutter there is in your home, the smaller the space will feel to people just walking through it for the very first time. They might not be able to see past the clutter and see how they would be able to fit all of their things in your home comfortably. So if you have clutter lingering around, it is time to put the majority of it in storage.

2. Power Wash The Exterior

You can hire someone to do this for you, or you can easily do it yourself if you own your own power washer. Then again, the power washers can be rented for a day or two if you do not own one. Just make sure that you are thoroughly washing all of your home siding, taking extra care to avoid the windows. When you power wash the side of your home, all of the dirt, dead insects, and bird droppings will be easily removed, and your home will look a lot better. This will show potential buyers that you have cared for your home.

3. Add A Fresh Coat Of Paint To The Interior Walls

You will want to make sure that you are patching up old nail holes and painting the walls with a fresh coat of a neutral colored paint. This will not only make your home more appealing to a larger group of people, but it will give the interior a fresh and well cared for look.

Once you have done those things, you will want to get in touch with a real estate agent to get the home listed. He or she will examine your home, both the inside and the outside, and give you some additional advice on what you might want to do before they start showing your home to the public. This will be advice based on his or her experience and what they know people are looking for in homes within your area.

Within a few months, I was able to find an incredible property that was within my price range, so I purchased it as soon as possible. This blog is all about choosing beautiful real estate.
