3 Things to do NOW if you’re Planning on Selling Your Home this Year
Take care of any major repairs
Don’t wait until the last minute to take care of repairs on your home. While some changes, like fresh paint or staging, can wait until the last minute, take care of major home repairs now. Reach out to contractors early for a time and cost estimate for any repairs needed. Local contractors can book appointments weeks in advance. Allow extra time for any major work, should unexpected problems come up. Make sure home repairs don’t delay when you can put your home on the market.
Make a “To-Do” list
With the help of your real estate agent, make a list of the things you need to do before putting your home on the market. It helps to prioritize items and create a timeline for when you want each project finished. For inspiration, check out the suggestions in our article How to Get your Home Market-Ready.
