Preparing Your Home To Sell

Have you ever wondered why some homes sell quickly, some take a very long time and others never sell?  Did you know 97% of Homes For Sale are overpriced?  Call Win Wilson to learn how to use that to your advantage.

Selling your home doesn't just mean hiring a realtor to stick a sign out front.  There are a lot of preparations you should make to ensure you get the best offer possible in the shortest time.


 Just because you've gotten used to the cracks in the walls and the rattles in the radiators doesn't mean a buyer will too.  If you have hardwood floors that need refinishing, be sure to get it done-hardwood is a huge selling point.  Be sure to fix any sticky doors or drawers as well.  Finally, don't forget to address any issues with the exterior-fences, shingles, sidewalks, etc.  After all, without curb appeal, some buyers may never get to see the inside.


  You want buyers to see themselves in your home.  We suggest replacing any bold color choices with something more neutral- beige, tan, and whites.  Repainting and new flooring if needed will make everything look fresh and new, and help prospective buyers imagine all the possibilities.

Staging your home.

 Home stagers can add small details and decor touches that will bring out the possibilities in the various spaces in your home.

Get pre-approved

By getting pre-approved as a buyer, you can save yourself the time looking at houses outside your budget.  You can also put yourself in a better position to make a serious offer when you do find the right house.  Unlike pre-qualification, which is based on a cursory review of your finances, pre-approval from a lender is based on your actual income, debt and credit history.  By doing a through analysis of your actual spending power, you'll be less likely to get in over your head.

Choose your mortgage carefully

Be sure you choose a local Mortgage Lender that comes highly recommended for their expertise.  One that you can visit with in their office to discuss the Mortgage program that best suites your needs and one you can hold accountable should issues arrive during the process that needs immediate attention.
