Selling Your Home for the First Time?


Summer is a busy time for those thinking about selling a home. Sellers have a lot to think about when preparing to put their home on the market. The market has shifted from the crazy pandemic market that you might have heard about. Houses are no longer getting multiple offers the moment they hit the market. If you’re considering a move and want to sell your home for the first time, here are a few things you should do and expect.

Create a Move-In Ready Home

If you want your home to sell, it must be in pristine condition. Make those pesky repairs that you’ve held off on. Clean and clean again. And bring your curb appeal to a new level. A first impression is critical for attracting buyers. You want your home to be “move-in ready.” 
Pro Tip: Hire an experienced agent that has all the resources to help you prepare your home for sale.


Take down any family pictures and any sports memorabilia. You don’t want to lose buyers because of a sports rivalry. You want your potential buyers to imagine their pictures and decor on the walls. 
Pro Tip: Hire a professional stager.

Set a Price That Will Sell

The last few years have been crazy for sellers. But the market has changed from what it was even a few months ago. So, be realistic about the current market conditions. Yes! Your friend or neighbor sold fast and for more than expected a few months ago. But that might not be the case now. 
Pro Tip: A Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) can give you an accurate update on home sales prices. I can help.

With interest rates rising and the market conditions leveling out, it’s good to ensure your home is in perfect selling condition. Use these tips to prep your home, whether it’s your first or last time selling. I’m ready to help you. Please call or text to schedule a meeting. I would love to discuss the value of your home.
