Ezymax Realty Inc agents can help you get your home sold at the best price possible, in the right time frame, by marketing your home locally and online, and by making ourselves available to interested buyers whenever they call. We guide owners through the sale process and coordinate the transaction from start to close.
Before Your Home Is Listed
It’s important to have your home in good showing condition before buyers start going through it. Here are some steps to take:
Touch up interior and exterior paint as needed
Install new carpeting and flooring if it appears worn or dated.
Make sure the front is clean and spruced up – curb appeal will create a favorable first impression.
Trim and Rake
Trim bushes and plants as needed, and make sure the lawn is kept mowed and trimmed. In autumn, rake the leaves; in winter, keep the snow shoveled.
Keep the interior clean, uncluttered and odor-free. Eliminate evidence of pets.
Minimize You to Maximize Them
Minimize personal items such as family photos. You want buyers to see themselves living in the home
Consider putting excess furniture and belongings in storage. Now’s the time to clean out the garage and basement and sell, give away or throw away items you don’t need any more.
Find Potential Problems Early
Consider having a pre-listing inspection performed. Buyers will be hiring professional inspectors; here’s your chance to address problems in advance.
Consider engaging a professional stagger to give your home the right emotional appeal.
During the Listing Period
When potential buyers visit your home, either find something to do away from your home for a couple hours, or make yourself as inconspicuous as possible.
Have fresh flowers in the entryway. It makes for a friendly introduction into your home.
If offers are made that don’t match your hoped-for price, don’t reject them offhand. Pay attention to your agent’s advice.
Consider dropping the price if several months go by with few or no offers, but if you and your agent have priced your home properly from the start, this shouldn’t be necessary.
Don’t get discouraged. In buyer’s markets, homes can take time to sell.
