Thinking About Selling??
Isabel Guzman:
So you’re thinking about putting your home on the market and you want to make sure you’re getting the best return on your investment. These tips should help. I know. Selling homes is second nature to me, since I eat and breathe real estate all day, every day, but I get nervous Nellie sellers all the time. And of course, you’re nervous. It’s a big deal.

Hi, everyone. I’m Isabel with eXp Realty. Well, let’s get started. Let’s talk about curb appeal. This is important, as it’s the first impression a buyer will have when they arrive at your home. The best thing that you can do is either rent a power washer or have someone come and do it for you. Either way, you want to wash years of dirt off of your driveway, sidewalk, and home.

You also want to pay attention to the front door. As an agent, it takes a few seconds for me to open the lockbox, and that gives a buyer a chance to really look at your entryway while they are waiting. Take a moment. Make sure there isn’t any peeling paint at the door or cobwebs around the lights.

Next, let’s talk about staging your home. In a recent study, 77% of buyer’s agents said that staging a home makes it easier for buyers to visualize themselves living in it. And staging will help your home stand out against the competition by showcasing the best features of your home to any prospective buyers. Also, research shows that the professionally staged homes can sell for as much as 10% more than homes that are not staged. So be sure that the agent you hire can assist you with this very important step.

Lastly, now that your home is all ready for buyers, you must have a showing plan. Buyers and their agents may request a showing of your home at any time and you must be prepared. Until your home is under contract, it’s important to be able to leave your home at a moment’s notice. A few things you can do is to plan simpler meals for easy cleanup and make plans for some outdoor activities. Also, find a place to bring your pets during showings. Maybe family or a good friend can take care of them.

These steps will help you in selling your home faster and for more money. For more information, please reach out. I’m Isabel Guzman, realtor with eXp Realty, servicing New Braunfels, Texas, zip code 78130, and the surrounding areas, of course.
