The Six Best DIY Tips to Prepare Your Home to Sell

It’s common for home sellers to make big, sweeping improvements on their homes right before they sell, but while it’s true that buyers may prefer a kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, you probably won’t recoup the entire cost of that major upgrade when selling.  If you’re hoping to sell in the next year, it’s best to put your money towards small changes that have a big impact. Here are the six best DIY tips to prep your home before selling.

What is your home worth?

Home prices have been on the rise for the last few years, and in many areas, home values are at their highest in six years. Do you know what your home is worth? Together, we can make sure your online home value is accurate and takes into account recent local sales, and any upgrades you’ve made while living there! Click here to see what your home is worth using our online estimator! The Estimated Home Value you receive via email is a property value based on local home sale prices and the assumed condition of your home. Your Estimated Home Value is syndicated and offered for display to national real estate websites. If you think your home may be worth more than your Estimated Home Value, we can work together to determine the market value that today’s buyers should see online.  Reach out today and we’ll get started on this free process!

Should you hire a Realtor?

Should you hire a Realtor?  Are we really worth it? The rate of For Sale By Owner (FSBO) homes has been decreasing steadily for the last decade. In 2016, FSBOs accounted for just 8% of home sales. Why the change?  Today’s buyers are tech-savvy, and expect homes to be marketed on national home search sites that FSBO sellers often forget about. Agents also help with the negotiation process and streamline the closing process and paperwork. Additionally, sellers who use an agent usually make more on their home sale, even after paying an agent’s commission! Don’t take my word for it — there are plenty of stats showing that hiring an agent is the smart choice. Click here to learn more about hiring an agent vs. selling your home FSBO.
