Kim and Vicky do Real Estate and Marketing your listing well. 


Are you thinking of putting your home on the market in the near future? What do you need to do before that happens and what is the value in doing so? When will you be prepared to do so? Where do you begin? Why is important to have your home prepped and ready for market?

These are all noteworthy questions and all necessary to bring value to your property, so you can get top dollar and shorten time on the market.

  1. Keeping in mind that you want the most money from your investment in the fastest time. It is so important to prepare your property, so it stands out and draws buyers. If you were selling your vehicle you would detail it, the same should be with your home.

  2. Working with your Realtor and a home staging professional they will make recommendations to bring your property up to move in ready condition.

  3. Addressing any issues with your property before it goes on the market gives you and your Realtor a strong negotiating position at the table, this way buyers can’t start lowering their offer. Statistics show that 63% of buyers will pay more for a property that is move in ready.

  4. Working with your Realtor, stager and a team to help you do any necessary preparations a timeline can be drawn up.

  5. Focus is really put on the living room, dining room, master bedroom and kitchen. Although having a stager showcase your entire home with your household items or a mixture of yours and theirs brings continuity and flow.

  6. The knowledge and experience you receive from preparing your property for market can be transferred into the purchase of your new home. You will be more organized, making for a smoother move.

  7. Your property will stand out from other listings in your area. Making Realtors happy to show your property.

  8. Most buyers, about 93% start their search for a new home on the internet. Having great pictures is important in marketing your home. In today’s market there are many off shore buyers this step helps show value to anyone searching.

  9. The goal is to prepare your property so that buyers can see themselves living there. If a space is too personal, too crowded and cluttered buyers have a hard time seeing themselves living in that space. Those first few seconds are so important, majority of buyers are forming their opinion of your house from that moment they walk in. Let’s work together to make it a positive and profitable one.
