1. FIND THE RIGHT REPRESENTATIVE ( PICK ME ! PICK ME ! )
The experience and knowledge of a dedicated real estate professional can be priceless. A good Realtor® forms a powerful team with his or her clients that makes it possible for them to have a smooth, successful, stress-free sale.
2. DETERMINE YOUR NEEDS AND WANTS FOR THE SALE, AND FOR YOUR NEXT HOME
Selling your primary residence can be tricky because you have to simultaneously be thinking about where you would like to buy. First weigh your priorities – the selling price is certainly important, but having a quick and efficient sale can often be worth accepting a slightly lower offer. Talk to your Realtor and make sure you’re comfortable with where your priorities are.
At the same time, you should be compiling a needs/wants list for the home you will buy. You will probably have to act fairly quickly when your house sells, so any amount of preparation you can do will serve you well.
3. PREPARING YOUR HOUSE FOR SHOWING
Underprepared homes can be sales disasters. Your home will never get as much attention from potential buyers as when it is first listed, so clearing clutter, cleaning, making repairs, and putting your home’s best face forward is essential. Don’t “open for business” until your home is ready to be seen as favorably as possible. Professional Staging when needed, is always part of my service.
4.FIND OUT WHAT YOUR LOCAL MARKET IS DOING
Being realistic about what your home is really worth is crucial to a successful sale. There is no substitute for a Professional Real Estate Representative when it comes to local market knowledge.

Lots of photos and online exposure are the key to getting a good response for your listing. Professional Photography is always a part of my service.
