List Your House TODAY!

This is the time to sell your home.

If you’re thinking of selling your home this year, this is the perfect time to sell it. The demand for your home compared to other houses listed for sale is at an all-time HIGH.

Houses will sell in November and December.

“In fact, several studies show that, on average, homes listed during this time are more likely to sell, sell more quickly, and sell closer to the asking price. November, in particular, has some unique advantages that make it an ideal time to sell,” according to Trulia.

Why sell RIGHT NOW?

Millennial buyers.

Less competition.

The schedule of millennial buyers is year round. They are typically not married or not scheduling their life around kids just yet. Which means your home for sale in the winter months will still be their dream home. Selling your home in the winter will benefit you. There will be less competition leaving, even more, potential buyers checking out your home.

The bottom line is that there is a high demand for your home right now.

Preparing to Sell Your Home? Here Are 5 Tips To Get Your Home Sold

Are you getting ready to sell your home? Here are 5 suggested tips to make sure your home is ready to go on the market.


1. Update Your Curb Appeal

CURB APPEAL is everything when it comes to selling your home. A potential buyer should be captivated by the outside that they can’t wait to see the inside of your home.

Here are a few things to do around the outside of your home:

  • Make sure walkway to front door is well lit
  • Keep the grass cut and neat
  • Re-mulch your flower bed and replace any dead plants
  • Pressure wash the driveway, front walkway and exterior of your home
  • Apply a fresh coat of paint on the front door
  • Replace home address numbers

2. Schedule A Home Inspection

To avoid surprises, get a home inspection and make any repairs before you list your home. It is better for you to find the flaws of your home first before the buyer, which would give them more leverage to bargain.

3. Replace Flooring and Paint Walls

FLOORING – If you have pets in your home I would consider the option to replace the carpet or get them professionally cleaned to erase the pet odor. You may even want to replace carpet with tile or hardwood floors to make the home more up to date and modern.

PAINTING – Clean up your walls with a fresh coat of paint! Keep your paint colors on a neutral scheme (ex. light grays, beige, whites) Remember to paint the whole wall instead of just touch-up spots.

4. Organize the Basement, Attic and Garage

Get rid of all the clutter!!! Potential buyers should be able to imagine the space in the garage, not all the junk you have in it. Your goal is to get rid of all the junk and make these rooms well-organized and CLEAN. Add shelving or brackets to make sure space is well used.

5. Consult a Stager

Consult a stager, who will walk through your home and make sure it is ready for potential buyers to view. The idea is to get your potential buyer to envision themselves in your home instead of looking at your personal items on display.
