Ever wonder why some houses have a large number of showings right when they go on the market and others garner no attention at all? What about one home causes multiple buyers to make offers on it and not another one that seems quite similar?
There are many factors that cause a house to sell. Price, location, and desirable features and amenities are important, but if your house isn’t presented well to the buying public, it may be overlooked!
‘Presentation’ is both getting the house in its best shape possible and how your agent markets that home! This week we’ll talk about preparing your house for sale.
Price and condition are irrevocably intertwined. If your house isn’t in the best condition, you won’t get the best price — it’s that simple. Sometimes price isn’t the most important factor to a seller and speed-to-market and/or simplicity might be more important. However, we’ve found that most sellers want the highest price possible for their house.
Properties that look great will be more coveted and quick to capture buyers' attention and fetch you an offer. A great agent will outline a pre-listing plan that helps you focus on the most important things to get your house ready for sale.

Whether your house is in perfect condition or needs a little work, our combined experience in real estate and construction allow us to help you determine what makes sense to do to your house to fetch the highest price and, most importantly, the highest net in your pocket!
