home for saleAre you ready to sell your house? It’s time to put your home on the market. It may seem easy to sell your home by simply calling a realtor and placing a sign in your yard. You need to do more than just put your house on the market.

Before Selling Your Myrtle Beach Home –

  1. Find an Agent. Look for a real estate agent that know the area. Are they a full time agent? Do they have the experience to walk you through listing your home and getting it sold for a good price?

2. Strategize when to list your home for sale. After you have found an agent, it is time to start strategizing when to list your house. Your Myrtle Beach real estate agent will guide you to the right time to list your house. Your agent will also verify the market value of comparable properties in your area. This will ensure that your home is priced correctly.

3. Make sure your curb appeal is good. Buyers tend to judge a book by the cover. This means that if buyers don’t like how your home looks from the outside, they may not be interested in purchasing your home. You can repaint any areas that may have been damaged or paint your doors a brighter color. Consider power washing your home and having a lawn care company improve the lawn, bushes and flower beds. Talk to your agent if you need help improving curb appeal.

4. Depersonalize and Declutter: After you’ve done the exterior of your house, it’s now time to do the interior. Start by clearing out your space. Clean your windowsills, basesboards, tables and other areas. If your home is cluttered with things, you may need to donate or get rid of some items. A messy, unorganized home can make it difficult for buyers to buy your house. You should also depersonalize your home and get rid of family photos. The buyers will be more inclined to buy your home if they can no longer see themselves in it. You should not leave personal items out. Buyers may not be able see themselves in your home and will not buy your home.

Although it may not be your preferred style, neutral colors can help buyers visualize themselves living in your home. Next, you should touch up any scratches on the walls, baseboards and doors. Even if you don’t have to do a complete repaint, this step is essential to make your home sellable and impress potential buyers. Make sure to fix any damage or loose fittings in your home. It will impress potential buyers by showing that you took good care of your home. Talk to your agent if you have any questions about how to make the house more appealing.

6. Protect your valuables. You can’t trust everyone who comes into your home. This is especially true for buyers. To be secure, keep your valuables hidden or stored in another location. You can keep your valuables safe from prying eyes while you are away.

7. Staging: Not everyone will like your style. A professional home stager is a good idea. A professional home stager will inspect your home to determine which items can be staged, and what they should bring to make your home more appealing to potential buyers.
