This includes prioritization of repairs, staging hints and decluttering.
Your real estate agent can give you basic guidelines or put you in contact with stagers in the Louisville are who specialize in staging real estate.
Selling Your Home
Once you have committed to selling your home, your real estate agent will begin the process of guiding you through what it will take to get your home ready for pictures and showings. This blog comes with a caveat; the current state of the homes for sale in Louisville lends itself to a seller-friendly environment. Your real estate agent will identify things you need to do to get your home ready today but getting it ready next year may be completely different, and each client has very specific needs.
There are some repairs you will need to make if there are glaring needs like cracks in walls or loose handrails. Your real estate agent will advise on painting, which is always an investment prior to selling. Your real estate agent will have many contacts to help you with these minor fixes if you are not a DIY type. Your real estate agent will also help you decide to stage or not to stage. This can be done with a full service staging company or just repositioning existing furniture or adding and subtracting pieces.
Decluttering Your House
Decluttering almost always will take place and does not mean just throw it in a closet. There is a method to showing storage areas as well. Keep in mind buyers often decide if this is the home for them in the first 5 minutes and 5 feet. You never get a second chance to make a first impression, and this is very relevant in home selling. The idea is to remove as many objections as possible and present your home as a great fit for as many people as possible. This can be uncomfortable for some sellers as this is their home not someone else’s. Your real estate agent will act as counsel for your best interest in getting your home ready to go on the market.
