Are you ready to sell your home, I mean really ready? Then there are some things that you might want to do prior to listing your home. In today's real estate market, with so many homes available, it's important to make sure yours stands out. It's called staging. Staging can be as simple as trimming the hedges and cutting the grass or as involved as remodeling or repainting. The idea is to make your home more inviting than the competition. Homes that are staged properly spend less time on the market and bring a higher price. When you decide to sell, speak with your Realtor about what needs to be done prior to placing it on the market. First impressions do make a difference. Put yourself in the buyer's shoes. There are two houses in the neighborhood where you want to be. The first house is free of clutter, with a fresh coat of paint, and a well maintained yard. The second home is in need of some minor repair, you tripped over some shoes going in the door and the yard was a mess. Which house would you be most interested in?
