How Do I Start?
Isabel Guzman:
Now that you have decided to put your home on the market and the overwhelm is settling in, you’re asking yourself where to start. Here are a few of guidelines or tips, if you will, to follow to get your home sold faster and for more money.

Hi, I’m Isabel Guzman, a realtor with eXp Realty and I’ve helped many sellers just like you in New Braunfels, Texas, zip code 78310, and the surrounding areas to sell homes and I understand the overwhelm.

I have found that by having a plan to follow, you can better prepare your home for those house hunters. The first thing you can do is a big one, and everyone needs to do it in some manner or another, and that is to declutter and deep clean your home. This can be a long process, but the sooner you start the better.

Take a really good look at each room and pack up anything that you won’t need for the next few months. This includes any personal items, including pictures. And remember, you plan on moving so you’ve got to move this stuff anyways. Why not get a head start?

Next, you want to make sure that your home is spick-and-span clean. By decluttering and cleaning your home it will look much bigger and brighter. Also, when a buyer sees a dirty home, they feel that the home may not have been well kept and we don’t want to give buyers any reason to look elsewhere.

Help your home shine to prospective buyers by polishing any hardware like doorknobs, handles, and your cabinets. And by making sure that those floors shine by deep cleaning the grout. You also want to finish any of those little projects you started but didn’t get around to finishing. And be sure that structure or mechanical items are in working order. These are items like your air conditioning and water heater.

Next off, your home likely hasn’t had a fresh coat of paint on those walls for a while so you may want to consider painting. Although you may really like that purple kitchen, it may make your kitchen look like a cave to a prospective buyer.

I’ve shared some great tips for the inside of your home. I also want you to think about creating a great first impression, which brings me to a tip about the outside of your home such as curb appeal. To learn more about curb appeal and for more practical steps that you need to think about when selling, watch my next video on tips to selling your home. These steps will help you in selling your home faster and for more money. For more information, feel free to contact me. I’m Isabel, bringing you home.
