Preparing Your Home For Sale

After the listing agreement is signed, we get started preparing your home for sale. Based on the target date you want to have it go on the market, we'll put together a calendar of tasks leading up to that date.

I have sold hundreds of houses, and I will give you a cost/benefit analysis of making repairs, painting, or landscaping. If you decide that it is worthwhile to make some improvements, I can refer you to professionals who I know will get the work done quickly.

Nearly every house can benefit from some "beautification" to look its best, so I advise you about how to unclutter, improve lighting, re-arrange furniture and make cosmetic improvements that cost little but greatly improve your home's appeal to potential buyers.

Paradoxically, an empty home feels smaller than one a furnished one. If you will be moving before we put the house on the market, I can help you decide whether to hire a professional staging company to provide furnishings, or save money by leaving behind some of your own furniture that I can arrange to give buyers a sense of space.

No matter how big or small your budget, I will work with you to improve the appearance of your home so that it looks great on listing day. Having my experienced eye evaluate your home and put together a staging plan can make all the difference in getting buyers to appreciate your home and make an offer you want to accept.
