Getting your home ready for sale

Knowing what to do and what not to do when getting a house ready for sale is extremely important especially in this volatile real estate market. Spend too much and you may not see any return, spend too little and either no one buys your house or the offers are way too low for you to consider. When getting a house ready for sale it is all about presentation.

I meet many prospective sellers who have a whole punch list of items to do to get their home ready for sale. Some are even prepared to renovate the bathrooms and possibly the kitchen.

The most important thing to do in this sort of situation is put your home up for sale far in advance of buying a new one. You may want to consider selling first especially in a buyers market. This way you will know exactly how much money you will have when buying a new home. Too many potential sellers start looking at homes before they put theirs on the market and often fall in love with something and then have to rush to get their home on the market. They price it low in order for a quick sale to find a buyer right away to avoid losing the home they like to another buyer who has nothing to sell and is ready to move forward.
