Why Preparing Your Home for Sale is Important

It's not uncommon for sellers in a real estate market as hot as Sarasota to imagine that they don't need to do much to get top dollar... but that's wrong.

If you want top dollar when you list your home, you need to know WHY you need to prepare your home for sale. Even in a hot seller's market, getting the best offers on your listing takes more than putting a sign in the yard. This video is going to share the facts about why you NEED to prepare your home for sale.

It's in your own best interest to get your home in top condition before you list it.

Depending on how long you've owned the property, it's a good idea to have a home inspection done on your own so that you know what issues may come up during the contract phase. Staging is another important consideration, and it's not personal! Staging isn't an insult to your style, it's a way to align the look of your property with the expectations that buyers already have from exposure to HGTV shows, Pinterest boards, and more.

Don't forget that the landscape and exterior are also important in a buyer's impression - that curb appeal factor is huge!

This is a topic I'm passionate about because so many sellers leave money on the table by not taking the steps to prepare a home for sale. If you've got questions about how to get your home ready for top-dollar offers, just let me know.
