3. Make Repairs Ahead of Time

A long list of necessary repairs may turn off potential buyers. Take on as many repairs as possible by yourself, then work with a trusted contractor for the rest. If you aren’t planning to make repairs ahead of time, hire a reputable professional to provide cost estimates to make it easer on the buyers

4. Showcase Your Home

First impressions matter! Clean up the front yard and maintain the landscape to boost your home’s curb appeal. Keep the inside of the home clutter-tree to maximize living space.

5. Price it Right

If you price your home too high, it may take significantly longer to sell while buyers look for other options. However, if you price your home to low initially. it may sell quickly but you may miss out on extra money. Your real estate professional can help you set the perfect price right off the bat.
