Erath County Home Selling Tips

Back to Real Estate News

Making the decision to put your home on the market comes with a wide array of emotions. You may be excited to move up to a larger property or you may feel nostalgic about moving away from the space that holds so many memories. All of these emotions are completely normal. Feeling prepared will inevitably make you feel better about your decision, so here are some pre-selling tips.

Organize paperwork. You probably have papers with information on home warranties, and prospective buyers are going to want to have these. Have them ready to view and impress your buyer with your organization skills.

Get an Inspection. Even if you are selling a home that is practically brand new, it doesn’t hurt to have a professional inspect it for you. It could still have hidden damage, and you would rather discover this than have the prospective buyer find it.

Perform repairs and get estimates. If the inspector does end up finding something that needs fixings, go ahead and fix it. You could also have estimates all ready for the buyer so they can fix it in the future. Honesty is a great policy.

Get organized. It’s never too early to start packing. It will also help in the staging process. With less stuff taking up the rooms of your home, buyers will be able to see the space better and picture their own belongings there.

Stage Your Home.  It’s time to amp up your curb appeal and encourage people to stop by your home and take a look around. Start outside by trimming trees and shrubs, picking up debris from your yard and doing any touch up exterior painting. Inside you want to make your home very clean and inviting by limiting clutter and personal items.
