What do you need to do to your house prior to listing it on the market? 

A lot of people ask me this question, and many others freeze up before putting their house on the market because they simply don’t know what to do in terms of getting it ready. When you prepare your home for the market, you need to focus on three key areas.

The first area is the curb, or your home’s “curb appeal.” There are many things you could potentially do to improve how your home looks in a photograph, from landscaping to repainting or planting some new flowers. You can also try something more substantial like replacing your garage door or repairing your roof. When you’re taking photos, remember to take off all the window screens.

The second area is the entry to the home. What does the home look like when you walk inside? Extend your focus in this area to include the kitchen and the master bedroom. These areas are far more important than the rest of the interior because they’re the ones prospective buyers pay attention to when they’re walking through the house.

The last area to focus on is the back of the house. Consider this the second part of your overall landscaping due diligence. This area is considered a retreat, so it needs to look as impressive as the front of the house. Does it need new paint or new flowers as well? 

If you’re thinking about listing your house in the near future, focus your preparation on those areas. We would be glad to come out to your house and take at look at it if you need help.
