It doesn’t really matter if it is a buyers or sellers real estate market, there are things that you can do before you even find a real estate agent that will help you to get the offers you want in record time. Consider some of the following suggestions from Premier One a leading homes for sale Charleston SC provider, before you even start your search for a local realtor.
The reason you need to do these things before getting a realtor is simple, the minute you sign that contract, your house goes in the MLS and every realtor including yours is going to bring their clients to your home to get their clients interested. That is not the time to start cleaning and preparing the house, it needs to be show ready at the start.
The other reason is as soon as the house contract is signed with the realtor, they are going to bring the realty’s photographer to the house to take pictures of each room, the backyard, and the front. These pictures are going to be your only chance to make a first impression, so the house needs to be in mint continue at the start.
Now that you are ready to sell your house, realize eventually you are going to be packing and moving. Get a jump on all that craziness by boxing up as much clutter now. Not only does this save you work down the road when things are going to become really stressful, you want that house to look as roomy and spacious as possible.
Never start piling stuff in the garage, this in only going to make some buyers question if your house has enough room. Most guys are already imagining all the things they can do in your garage, and when you fill it will your junk, that takes away from the appeal for many people who may have otherwise put an offer on your house.
Hire a handyman and make all those repairs now before the house is listed. Not only does the house show better when everything is in working order, these potential buyers can not use those points as reasons to try and get you to come down on your price. There is a better chance of you getting full asking price when the house is in top condition.
These are just a few of the reasons to get working on making the house as presentable as possible at the start. The nicer looking the house, the easier for a buyer to get emotionally connected.
