When you sell your house, there are a few certain steps you can take to maximize your sale.

We spend a lot of time helping homeowners prepare for the market. A lot of people think this starts way later in the process, when in reality, they should spend a lot of time preparing their home to get the most money in their pocket. You want the house to look its best to buyers and get maximum exposure.

Pre-inspections help you avoid unpleasant surprises during the escrow process.

There are five key steps you should take when listing your home:
  1. Prepare your home to get on the market. First impressions are everything, so we make sure to schedule a home staging consultation where a professional stager and interior designer will give you tips to prepare your home for the market.
  2. Pre-inspections. For most homeowners, a pre-inspection is important because it removes potential unknowns that you want to avoid during the escrow process. We can set this up for you, as well.
  3. Put the advice of the home inspector and the stager to work. This will ensure you're clear of all issues, and you might even want to bring out a contractor or a painter to take care of anything big.
  4. Home evaluation. We'll give you a free home valuation through a market analysis and set up where your home should be positioned in the market. Or, you can have a professional appraiser come out for a full appraisal.
  5. Interview an agent. You want to make sure they have the highest quality marketing plan. There's a big difference in how much different agents invest into marketing your home to sell. We, for example, provide professional photography, aerial drone videos, and even 3-D home walkthrough technology to make a potential buyer feel like they're walking through the house even if they're 500 miles away. Then, we'll get your home on the best websites like Zillow, Trulia, and of course, our website.
These steps will put you on the right path to finding the right buyer. Just last week, we sold a home with our marketing plan and received offers within 48 hours. The best part about today's market is that with the right marketing, you can achieve amazing results.
