Once you have worked with your Realtor to plan the sale of your home, you need to roll up your sleeves and prepare your home for a marketing blitz and viewing.
Preparing your home takes objectivity. Look at your home through the eyes of the buyer and ask yourself what you would expect. Even better, ask your agent to take you to competing open houses in your area, so you can see the condition of homes you’re trying to beat. Remember that most buyers are viewing at least a dozen homes before they make an offer. Yours needs to stack up against the competition.
