If you’re thinking about listing your Wake County home in the new year, there are certain steps you should take before you do so.
By doing these things, you’ll increase your chances of enjoying a great outcome on the Wake County real estate market.
Top Things You Should Do Before You List
Before you ever plant a for sale sign in your front yard, make sure you do these things first:
Get Your Home Inspected. When you find an interested home buyer, they’re more than likely going to want to schedule an inspection of your home before closing. So anticipate this by scheduling a home inspection of your own. That way, if there are any major issues discovered, you can get them fixed before any potential home buyer even knows they’re there.
Give Your Home a Mini Makeover. You want your house to look as alluring as possible to Wake County home buyers. So give your home a mini-makeover by applying a fresh coat of paint to the house, cleaning up your home’s entryway or sprucing up the landscaping in your backyard. All these little things put together may make a world of difference to your home’s overall appeal.
Strategize. It’s important before you enter the market to formulate a marketing plan. If you’re not a marketing expert – no worries! When you hire an experienced Wake County real estate team like the Rachel Kendall team, you’ll be able to rest assured that we’re using the latest and greatest marketing techniques to get your home sold for a price you want!
Determine a list price. But before that, it’s important to determine the value of your home. You’d be surprised how many people think that these things don’t need to be related. But the truth is, the more close your home’s list price is to its true value, the more likely you are to sell it.
Declutter Your Home. The more junk you are able to successfully remove from the home, the more inviting and spacious your Wake County home is going to appear. Consider working with a professional home stager to make sure you’re maximizing the space in your home.
Remain Abreast of Changes in Market Activity. It’s important to stay in-the-know about Wake County real estate market activity. If there are any changes, you may want to change your marketing plan accordingly. Work with your NC REALTOR to determine the best course of action.
