Three-Month Plan to Sell Your Home

Sponsored Content provided by Neal Johnson - Licensed Real Estate Broker , Network Real Estate

So, you’ve decided to sell your home, and you want to have it ready for the first showing. You shouldn’t wait until the last minute to get your home ready to list, so you’ll need to have a plan set in place. The tips provided below will help get your home ready to sell in three months.


Make A Plan

The first thing you should do is to make a plan of all the things you need to get done and when you want to have your home sold. Making a plan helps you organize and break down tasks making them easier to get done in the coming months.

During this time, you’ll also want to start talking with a real estate agent. Finding an agent takes time, and you’ll be happy you took the time to find the correct agent. It’s best to find an agent with experience and who knows how to sell a home effectively.


Three Months Before You Sell

Get an inspection to see what needs to be fixed inside your home. You may be surprised at the number of minor problems your home has that will cause it to lose value. When your inspection is over, you can then prioritize what needs to be done first. Talk with your agent to help determine what’s crucial and what you can let slide for a while.


One Month Before Selling

The month before you list your home is the time to apply a fresh coat of paint, do your landscaping, and work on other aesthetic areas to increase the curb appeal. You’ll need to deep clean your home a week or two before listing your home, as well. This means cleaning the carpets, removing stains, and maybe taking pets elsewhere until your home sells to avoid accidents.

Taking the time to start working on your home may be difficult, but it’s necessary if you want to stay ahead of the competition and sell your home by the desired date. Just follow the steps above to ensure a smooth and painless experience.
