“Hi my name’s Christine Nagy and I work for Coccia Real Estate in East Hanover. I’m going to let you know today five things that you should do to get your home ready to put on the market.
The first thing that is really important is to make sure you have a good curb appeal for your home. Buyers are judging your home from the minute that they come through the door. So we want to make sure everything is nice and manicured outside. There’s no chipping or any signs of distress on the house and they get a better first impression because you can never get a second chance to make that first impression. And buyers know when they walk through the door if they like the house or not already.
The second thing is get a fresh coat of paint on the walls. Your home will immediately have a nice face lift and it will look clean and neat and more modern.
The third thing is depersonalized. Buyers are trying to envision themselves living in the house. So take down the family portraits and personal items so they can see themselves living there.
So the fourth thing is to light up your home during showings. Open the shades. Maximize the light. It will give you a warm, inviting feel. And the fifth and the most important item is price your home correctly. Buyers are very savvy they know a lot what they know what sold you know price. It’s really important to choose a local realtor that can help you price it correctly.
