Step 1:  Getting the Home Ready to Sell

Making a first impression is always important, whether it's in your career or in selling your home.  Getting your home into top showing condition is one of the very important things you need to do before letting any one know that you are wanting to sell your home. 

The first thing to consider in getting your home ready is the curb appeal.  Make sure prospects can see the home and have a favorable impression when they drive by the home.  The next step in the critical first impression is your entryway.  Make your home inviting.

The next step is to box up a lot of your "stuff" to get rid of the clutter that all homes have.  Also pack up family pictures, etc. from your walls.  The buyers need to think about their things in the home instead of your things!  Clean up, paint and clean carpets as needed.  Pay special attention to the kitchens and the bathrooms.

You may even want to watch the TV shows on getting homes ready to sell for some ideas.  Another idea is to go to open house and new construction display homes to see how the homes are staged for showing.
