Here’s what you must do to prepare your home for our market.
So you’ve decided to put your home on the market—what happens next? Here are the steps you need to take that will lead to a quick and lucrative sale:
First, schedule a consultation with a Realtor (preferably us!). This will help clarify your goals and give your Realtor a chance to find out more about your situation. After that, have a market analysis done. Part of this requires giving your Realtor a tour of your home so they can learn more about it, answer your questions, and compare it to your competition. In this COVID-19 era, you can always do a virtual tour via Zoom or FaceTime.
Once that’s completed, it’s time to prepare your home so that it appeals to the most buyers. This means getting a staging consultation. If you work with our team, we’ll hire a professional stager to visit your house and plan how to make it appeal to the most buyers while using the least amount of resources. We’ll make it look its best for listing photos and 3D tours (which we pay for). During these times, your first showings will be virtual anyway, so that’s where your home needs to shine.
At this point, you may be wondering: Is now even a good time to sell? Absolutely! Our supply of inventory in the Madison metro area is extremely low (one to 1.5 months), so you already have an advantage as a seller. You can dictate the terms of your contract and be in a great negotiating position.
