Preparing Your Home For Sale

Selling your home could be as simple as a fresh coat of paint.

Add value to your home.

Will a can of paint amount to thousands of dollars added to your sales price? It could. Because while you know your home is valuable, sometimes all it takes is a few little improvements to help potential buyers see it too. 

Allow our experienced agents to help you visualize your home through the eyes of a buyer. Buyers typically first see your home online and it is for that reason the photographs of your home need to really shine and to elicit emotions to make buyers call for an appointment. 

We’ve outlined the most popular upgrades below. Our agents can help prioritize each by determining which projects will add the most value based on your specific home, neighborhood and market. They can also introduce you to professional stagers to help merchandise your home and put it in its best marketable condition.

Tips to get you started.


  • Declutter
    Your closet looks twice as big with half the clutter.
  • Paint
    A fresh coat of paint serves as a blank canvas to potential buyers.
  • Decorate
    Prove that each room has purpose, but don't overdo it.
  • Brighten
    Natural lighting really does help lift the mood and make a room look larger.


  • Exterior
    A fresh coat of paint really can make any exterior look new again.
  • Landscape
    If the landscaping is bad, they likely won't step inside.
  • Garage
    Prove that both cars can actually fit by tidying up.
  • Patio & Deck
    Set up the patio as if your friends were coming over for a barbeque.

Inspections and Disclosures

Inspections are inevitable. Most buyers reserve the right to do inspections. Having an inspection prior to marketing your home can reveal issues that if left unattended could cancel the deal. Your experienced agent will help you interpret the results, suggest which issues should be corrected prior to marketing, and make introductions to licensed contractors.

A buyer's first impression of your home can make or break a potential sale.
