Getting your home ready to sell can feel like a daunting task, but the agents at Austin and Austin Real Estate company reduce all the preparation to three simple steps: refresh, secure, and prepare. Start by refreshing your home so it's ready to be shown to potential buyers. Spruce up your house by decluttering, organizing and sanitizing every living space. When refreshing your home, look at your home through the eyes of the buyer. “The buyer is looking to make your place their new home,” agent Natalie Willard emphasizes. “When your home is nice and clean, the buyer can see their future in your home.” Showings can happen at any moment, so you want to make sure your home is refreshed at all times.
Next, secure any valuables including medications, jewelry, or any other personal belongings that are important to you. Even though an agent will be present at showings and open houses, make sure your belongings are safe. When you secure your valuables, you not only protect you and your family, but you also allow the buyer to see their future in your home. Along with securing your valuables, you will lastly want to prepare. Anticipate the minor problems and tasks that come from inspections. Check and service the important features of your home like the roof, furnace and A/C unit. “Minor problems left unchecked, can lead to major problems,” agent Willard explains. Prepare for the little tasks and repairs, so you don’t find yourself surprised later on.
The agents at Austin and Austin Real Estate are eager to help you every step of the way in getting your home ready to sell. “We are the ones who will help refresh, secure, and prepare your home,” agent Willard states. With years of experience, these agents are dedicated to helping you know what to do when you list your house on the market.
