Congratulations on getting your home on the market. That in itself is a big undertaking. If you partnered with us then you've enjoyed a wealth of information, multiple walkthroughs of the property, professional comprehensive marketing, and as a result are getting qualified buyers looking at your home.
This is not the time to take your foot off the gas! Continue to do all the maintenance thought you did before your home was on the market. Keep your lawn mowed, change your air filter, pressure wash when needed, and if it's time for your yearly HVAC check-up get that done too.
Buyers can spot the difference between a home that has been neglected or home like yours which has been loved and cared for. The market will reward you with more showings and more robust offers, which means more money in your pocket at closing!
About showing is we never know when they're going to happen. As a result we recommend to be show ready at all times. There was a lot of effort that who is the owner will need to put in to keep the home show ready. Continue organizing closets, pack up any items that you will not need from now until you move into your new home, and have a contingency in place I have time if you have a pet.
One of the best pieces of advice we could ever offer is go to bed "show ready." We're all familiar with Murphy's Law. It's best to end the day with a clean house then to have to scramble first thing in the morning when we have back-to-back showings. We don't want you to miss anything and we want the buyers to have the best experience they can so they will choose your house over someone else's.
Because you've partnered with a professional local agent, prepare your home for the market, and chosen the price the market will respond to your home will sell quickly. As a result we will need to have a list of homes that meet your criteria for your next purchase.
If we find a home that works for you and your family we can even make make an offer contingent on your home selling. This strategy is preferred so that we can begin the inspection process on your new home continuing to find a new buyer for your current home. We can walk you through all the paperwork and connect you with a local lender who can assist.
