Agent & Price
There is much you can do to increase the appeal of your property and to create a strong first and lasting impression on a potential buyer.
What To Do To Prepare:
The following are a few factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale:
- Curb Appeal.
Keeping your landscape pristine, and adding creative touches to your yard, such as colorful annuals, will create an immediate impact on passers-by and potential buyers.
- Property Repairs.
Simple upgrades such as window repairs, polishing the doorknobs, and a fresh coat of paint in the most frequently used rooms will instantly brighten up the property. In addition, any health/safety items and matters affecting the structural integrity of your property should be considered and ideally addressed prior to listing the property.
- Cleanliness and Staging.
Keep your property uncluttered, sweet-smelling and well-lit from top-to-bottom. Pay attention to details: put away the kitty litter, place a vase of fresh flowers near the entryway, pop a batch of cinnamon rolls in the oven, have your carpets cleaned. Your agent will scan the property before it is listed for sale to see how you can improve the staging of your property. Employing the services of a professional stager can not only enhance the marketability of your property, but may also increase its value.
- Disclosures and Inspections.
We are very familiar with the legal procedures involved in disclosures and are ready to help you fill out the California mandated disclosure statements, as well as suggest home improvement measures before placing your property on the market (such as physical, termite and septic inspections).
Showing and presenting your property to potential buyers is a job that we will take care of for you. Buyers feel more comfortable discussing the property with the agent, if you are not there. Moreover, your agent will know what information will be most useful in representing your interests when speaking with prospective buyers.
