What Your Agent Wants You to Know When Selling Your Home

coldwell banker sold signIf you are ready to sell your home, it does require some work on your part to prepare your home to sell and make it through the selling period. Your real estate agent will be a wonderful advisor when it is time to sell your home but it is important to remember that there is only so much your agent can do and they will need your help. Here are three things your agent wants you to know before you list your home.

Declutter Your Home

When buyers come to view your home, they need to be able to picture themselves in your home. This can be really hard if your home is cluttered and full of personal items that distract them from the home. Before your list your home for sale, take time to put away most of your personal items and truly declutter the home. This applies to all parts of your home. Just because it is hidden behind a door or cabinet doesn’t mean buyers won’t look there. Declutter and organize closets, cabinets, and laundry rooms along with the more public parts of your home.

 Don’t Stay Home for Showings

Think about if you were the one buying a house. A house is a huge commitment and when you are shopping for one, you will want privacy to discuss it openly without feeling uncomfortable in front of the owners of the home. Remember this when buyers want to look at your home. They should feel completely comfortable and able to speak freely. With this in mind, make every effort to leave home during showings so buyers feel comfortable. The biggest problem with being home is that buyers may be uncomfortable and leave your home before they have adequate time to fall in love with it.

Finally, as we are still adhering to COVID 19 restrictions, i.e. wear a mask, using hand sanitizers, and social distancing, everyone will feel more secure with fewer people around.

Listen to Your Agent

When you hire a real estate agent, you are saying that you trust them and want their help. When you have that help, it is then important to follow their advice. Like a doctor, attorney, or other professionals, a real estate agent is the expert in their field and if you have chosen them to help you, you should follow their advice. This doesn’t mean you have to do every single thing they suggest but listen and try to understand their logic if you want to give your home the best opportunity to sell.

It is important that you invest yourself in selling your home and that means both your time and using all of the resources you have available to you including your real estate agent. When you are ready to discuss selling your home, give us a call, and let’s talk about your property and how we can help.
