Use a Listing Agent
Sure, you may think it will be easy to sell your home on your own, but a licensed agent has access to a network of resources including the MLS – Multiple Listings Service – which is a local database that is a central point for agents to view what is available on the market. Your agent will also have the knowledge of the current market atmosphere to determine a good listing price.
First impressions are key! You want to ensure your home is clean and picked up prior to a showing or open house. Take a look around – is a room cluttered? An inexpensive tip is to buy plastic tubs that can fit under a bed or in a closet. The bins can be used for children’s toys or items that are not used every day. A de-cluttered room not only looks better, but can also make the room feel bigger. Curb appeal is also a big deal – ensure the lawn is mowed or even plant some flowers if it is the right season. Even the smallest task can make a difference.
