Get your home in Move-In Condition

We’ve all done it -- accumulated a little bit too much stuff and the result is clutter. Buyers are looking for a home that is in move-in condition, so you’ll need to spend some time making your home immaculate before the Open House signs are set out. First, declutter so all surfaces are cleared of paperwork, and unused or old appliances. Next, depersonalize your home by removing family photographs, paperwork, even Grandpa’s favorite lounge chair. Buyers will be able to envision themselves living in your home if it’s clean, de-cluttered, and de-personalized. Consult with your Lyon Realtor to determine if staging is necessary; this often places for-sale homes at the top of buyers’ lists.

Price it Right

The biggest mistake to avoid when selling your home is over pricing it. All home sellers have a price in mind that they’d like to receive for their home. If you’re thinking about selling, contact a Lyon Realtor today and they’ll provide you with a detailed market analysis of your home’s value at no cost or obligation. Your Realtor will also help you evaluate your home’s condition and features and how these factors should be weighed into your expected sales price. Some real estate agents will promise you that they can get a certain amount for your home, but homebuyers are savvy and will know if you overprice your home. This will mean missing out on the serious homebuyers; they will seek properties that are more reasonably priced.
