Are you thinking about selling your home before the end of the year? If so, now is the time to take action. September is your window to get your home ready and ensure a successful sale before the year is up.


The first step is to identify any repairs or updates that need to be made. These could include fixing leaky faucets, replacing outdated light fixtures, and painting rooms that need a fresh coat. And, these updates are all doable in September! By making those improvements, you’ll not only increase the value of your home but also make it more appealing to potential buyers. Next, declutter and stage your home. Remove any personal items or clutter that could distract buyers from seeing your property’s true potential. You may want to take advantage of professional staging advice to help create an inviting and neutral environment that appeals to a broad range of buyers. In addition to those updates and improvements, it’s also important to price your home correctly. The list price you present to the marketplace is crucial. It needs to reflect the up-to-date market value of your property, current market trends, and the condition of your home. While you don’t want to leave money on the table by pricing it too low, setting too high a price could lead to your home languishing on the market.
You don’t want that!

Finally, marketing your listing should start as soon as possible. High-quality photos — and possibly video — will need to be taken to highlight the best features of your property. In addition, the word will need to be spread to active buyers who are looking for a property just like yours. By taking these steps this month, you’ll be well on your way to successfully selling your property before the end of the year. We can help make that happen.
