A Home Selling Guide


Preparing to Sell

How do I get my home ready to sell?

There’s a lot that goes into making your home as appealing as possible to buyers. Work with your agent to understand what kinds of upgrades and features competing listings in your area are offering and which home improvements are worth your time and money.

How do I get my home ready to sell?

From the basement to the roof, make sure your home is ready to impress buyers before you list. Check out our Get Ready to Sell Checklist for a comprehensive list of tips and tricks to help get your home market ready.

How can I increase the value of my home?

Before you list, making certain renovations can increase the value of your home and give you a competitive advantage over other listings. Talk to your agent about which home improvement projects have the most resale value in your area.

Do I need to get a home inspection?

Buyers’ offers are usually contingent upon a professional home inspection. Some sellers will conduct a pre-listing inspection before putting their home on the market to show transparency to buyers and to potentially streamline the selling process.

What should I fix before selling my house?

Any structural issues, water damage, mold infestations, electrical problems, ventilation issues, or pipe or septic damage of any kind are guaranteed red flags to a home inspector and buyers. It’s best to make these kinds of repairs before putting your home on the market or take them into consideration when pricing your home.

Should I stage my home when selling?

A well-staged home will stand out amongst the competition and appeal to a wide variety of buyers. Staging also has a significant return on investment, helping to sell your home quickly for its maximum market value.
