Preparing Your Home for the Marketplace: A Step-by-Step Guide to Achieve Top Dollar in 2023
Selling your home can be an exciting yet daunting task.
With the right preparation and advice from the Nick McLean Real Estate Group, you can ensure that your home is best prepared and positioned to attract the top qualified buyers and achieve top dollar in 2023.
Here is a step-by-step guide to help you prepare your Leavenworth Wenatchee or Chelan home for the marketplace,
Step 1: Declutter and depersonalize
The first step in preparing your home for the marketplace is decluttering and depersonalizing. This means removing any excess items and personal belongings that may make it difficult for potential buyers to envision themselves living in the space. This includes family photos, personal collections, and anything considered clutter.
Don’t worry about decluttering or depersonalizing until you meet with an NMREG listing partner. Our listing partner will guide you on how best to complete these essential tasks. They have stagging advice and vendor resources such as cleaners to help with the heavy lifting.
Step 2: Make necessary repairs.
Next, you’ll want to make any necessary repairs to your home. This can include fixing any leaks, replacing worn-out flooring, or repainting any faded walls. By addressing any issues before listing your home, you’ll be able to present your home in the best possible condition, which will help to attract potential buyers.
Your NMREG listing partner will do a full walk-through and point out items to repair or improve to maximize your price. Don’t lift a hammer unit we meet. You don’t want to spend any money until you are certain it will get you a return on investment.
Step 3: Clean and stage
Once your home is decluttered and repaired, it’s time to clean and stage. Cleaning your home from top to bottom will ensure that it’s in show-ready condition. And staging your home can help potential buyers envision themselves living in the space by showcasing the room’s potential and highlighting the home’s best features.
This is similar to step 1 but this is the step before photos. Our listing partner will help you stage your home and get it ready for photos. We hire a professional photographer and video person to highlight your home.
Step 4: List your home with a professional
Finally, it’s time to list your home with a professional. A real estate agent can help you to price your home competitively, market your home effectively, and negotiate on your behalf. At Nick McLean Real Estate Group, we specialize in helping homeowners in Leavenworth, Wenatchee, and Chelan, WA to achieve top dollar for their homes.
