They say behind every success is a great team, and the same goes for selling your house. Developing a strong team will save you from extra work, unnecessary stress, and sleepless nights. Here is our thoughts on the six key people you need to work with when selling your home:
- REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL
You may be thinking about selling your home for sale by the owner (FSBO) to save money on commissions. But chances are, working with a real estate agent will make the process of selling your home less expensive, less time-consuming, and less overwhelming. We at Hinge make this process incredibly simple, effortless, and stress free.
- HOUSE CLEANER
It’s a good idea to hire a professional cleaner to go through your house and deep clean everything before showings and open houses. If you have pets or young children, you may want to continue with bi-weekly cleanings or do a quick cleaning yourself to keep your house in tip-top shape. No buyer wants to walk into a dirty home. The clutter and grime can take away from the beauty of your home.
- HOME STAGER
A professional stager views your home from a buyer’s perspective and will be able to design the space to appeal to and catch the eye of potential buyers.
Quality is key when it comes to your listing photos. Hiring a professional photographer will give you an edge on the MLS and will present your home in the best way possible to grab attention. (Look at our Previous Blog post “Listing Photos Do’s and Don’ts” for more information).
Hiring a handyman before listing on the MLS is definitely something you should consider. Buyers tend to notice EVERYTHING, so doing a little upkeep and home maintenance before walkthroughs and showings will prevent turn-offs and possible concerns from buyers.
