If you are planning to sell in the fall, there are a number of things you can do now to prepare in advance of listing. Timing is key and it’s always better to be ready for marketing your property at the most optimal time.
Prepare your home to show well. Make sure your apartment stands out and is well-received by buyers by creating the best possible first impression. This can mean different things for different properties but an experienced broker can advise you. Preparations can include everything from replacing light bulbs and/or getting windows cleaned to de-cluttering, staging, painting or even appliance or finish upgrades.
Make sure everything is in good working condition. It is advisable to make any repairs necessary in advance so all is in good working order when you list and ultimately sell.
Get a head start on marketing materials. Start working with a broker early to get a jump on all of the marketing materials (photography, floor plans, brochures, ads, etc.) so that everything is ready to go on schedule.
Engage an attorney. Connect with your attorney to make sure all of the paperwork you will need for closing is in order.
As always, please feel free to reach out at any time for a confidential valuation of your home.
