Select your agent to maximize your exposure.Representative

When selling your home, you should select a real estate agent who can expose your property to the biggest market to ensure the fastest sale at the best possible price. Ask your prospective agents about the different ways they plan to advertise your home.

Don't buy the first house you see.

If you like the first house you see, don't be tempted to make an offer right away. You should look at least a few other houses first so you can get an idea of the homes that are available in your price range. When being represented by Kim she will provide you with a history of what has recently sold in that neighborhood and a list of everything in the area that meets your criteria so you can make a well informed decision.

Show your home in the best light possible.

While you don't have to keep your house 100% clean all the time, you should make any necessary repairs and perform all major cleanup work BEFORE you start showing your home. There are hundreds of small things you can do to make your house more attractive for a showing, ranging from drawing all the blinds and tightening loose doorknobs to displaying fresh-cut flowers and baking a loaf of bread. Most importantly, you should not be present during showings so that prospective buyers can explore your home freely. Kim will provide a checklist of things you can do to make your home more attractive and aide you in stagging your home to further enhance it for perspective buyers.
