Getting Ready to Sell

You can do a lot to increase the appeal of your property and to create a lasting impact on potential buyers.

What To Do To Prepare

The following are a couple of factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale:

1. Curb Appeal.
Keeping your landscape pristine, and adding creative touches to your yard, such as colorful annuals, will create an immediate impact on passers-by and potential buyers.

2. Property Repairs.
Simple upgrades such as window repairs, polishing the doorknobs, and a fresh coat of paint in the most frequently used rooms will instantly brighten up the property.

3. Cleanliness and Staging.
Keep your property uncluttered, sweet-smelling and well-lit from top-to-bottom. Pay attention to details: put away the kitty litter, place a vase of fresh flowers near the entryway, pop a batch of cinnamon rolls in the oven, have your carpets cleaned. Your agent will scan the property before it is listed for sale to see how you can improve the staging of your property.

4. Disclosures and Inspections.
We are very familiar with the legal procedures involved in disclosures and are ready to help you develop a thorough disclosure statement beneficial to both you and the buyer, as well as suggest home improvement measures before placing your property on the market (such as termite and pest inspections).

Scan and Go?

On our listing pages you will see a section in the right column called Scan and Go that contains an image with random lines and boxes but what is it?

That image is called a QR Code (click to learn more) which is basically a bar code that can contain information like a web site address, contact information, etc. These QR Codes are scanned using a smartphone camera and a simple app like QRafter (free on iTunes) to perform a function like visiting a website. On here, we’ve created links back to the listing page so that while you are viewing the listing on your computer you can scan the code with your smartphone and take the listing with you…Scan and Go.
