Now that might seem like a silly question to you, but just stop and think for a moment. When have you been to the doctor or dentist and they tell you to do something…and you do…for the first few days or weeks, and then you start to slack off. I can relate to this after a recent dentist appointment and a new dental hygiene “process” I was given. I’m still trying to adjust.
Why You Hire A Professional to Help you Sell Your Home
There is a lot involved in the sale of a home. But, there are things you need to do even before that listing agreement is signed, and the sign goes in the yard (or on social media in the case of a condo!)
When I meet with a potential seller, I’m there to help you sell your home. And I’m going to be pretty direct about what you need to do (on your side) to make it happen. And, you can’t take it personal. Yes, I know it’s your HOME…but you need to remember, it is now a house that we need to sell. You can pack up your memories and take them to the NEW home. But we have to sell this one first.
“But I love my red accent wall.” “The colors match my furniture. It will make the place show much better.” Ah, no, and no. Neutral paint will make your place show much better. Painting can be a tricky thing with a Buyer. Think like a buyer for a moment. You have red walls and now you know the first thing you have to do is paint before you move in. Or hire someone. Oh, well, I need money for that, so I need to ask for more Seller paid closing costs, or get some more off the list price so I’ve got the money to paint.
See what you just did to YOUR bottom line sales price by not wanting to paint?
I’m going to give you professional advice to help you maximize your profit. Listen to my suggestions, and let’s work together to show your house/condo in the best possible light for the best possible price.
