Four Things to Remember Before You Sell Your Home

Are you hoping to sell your house in the future? We’ve gathered a list of four things you should take care of before you put it on the market…continue reading to learn more!

Rent a storage unit. When you decide to show your home to prospective buyers, you will want it to be clutter-free, with your closets looking as spacious as possible. This means you will probably need to remove plenty of belongings around your home and closets. Consider renting a mini storage unit to house your belongings until your home sells.  As a bonus, you will have a head start on the packing when it is time to move!

Choose the right agent. Do your research before hiring a real estate agent. Agents should have an excellent track record that includes plenty of recent sales, being updated on the latest market trends and knowing how to use technology to get the word out about your house. Ask for references and credentials before making a decision.

Enhance your curb appeal. First impressions matter the most. Attract buyers by sprucing up the exterior of your home. Splurge on an attractive patio set, trim your shrubs and plant some pretty flowers along your walkway. You will likely get a 100% return on the money you spend.

Make it impersonal. To you, it looks homey and lived-in. To potential buyers, it is just a mess. Get rid of personal effects before showing your home. You want your visitors to envision their own family and personal belongings here – not yours.

Once you have started the process of selling your home, you will also want to begin your search for a new living space. SeaComm’s experienced mortgage originators are here for your financing needs! Click here to access our online Mortgage Center, or give us a call at (800) 764-0566!
