Hire an Agent Who Really KNOWS the Process of Selling a Home

By Linda Pillared

 

Are you planning on selling your home? If so, the most important thing that you should do is hire a real estate agent who knows the process of selling a home.

 

The reason why I mentioned this is because in 2017 some people are eager to sell their homes as quickly as possible and they neglect the process that they should be following when it comes to selling their homes.

 

In this article, I will break down a few key tips that all homeowners should follow which will help them to sell their homes for the most money possible.

 

Tip #1 - Declutter Your Home

 

It doesn’t matter how long you been living in your home, the reality is that if you've been living in your house for any length of time you most likely will have accumulated clutter.

 

Clutter of any amount will make the rooms inside of the home look smaller than they actually are.

 

To get started with decluttering your home, start with one room at a time, preferably the living room, creating piles for things that you want to keep, donate, and throw away. This will make getting rid of things a whole lot easier and ensure that you don't take everything with you when you move to your next home.

 

Tip #2 - Clean Your Home Thoroughly

 

As funny as it sounds, many homeowners think that they are cleaning their homes thoroughly before listing them but the reality is that most people, regardless of their age, always miss certain areas in the home and those areas remain glaringly obvious, especially when it comes time for pictures or open houses.

 

Is house cleaning something that you absolutely dislike? If so, to ensure that your house is cleaned thoroughly, and in Tip-Top condition for showing, I recommend that you hire a professional house cleaner to come in and clean your home because, this will ensure that every area of your home is clean, including those areas which you may not see or use on a regular basis.

 

Tip #3 - Stage Your Home

 

Last of all, but most important, one of the top things that many homeowners don't do well enough when selling their homes is to stage their homes for sale.

 

Staging a home is actually very simple, it involves following steps 1 and 2 in this article to get the home ready for staging and then using a few pieces of furniture in each room of the home to make the home look lived-in while emphasizing the space that the house has to offer.
