Maximizing Your Home For Top Dollar
Are you ready to list your home for sale?

One of the first questions you might have is, “how can I sell for top dollar?”

Every seller wants to get the best possible price for their home; fortunately there
are ways to make sure your potential buyers see the true value of  your property
and allow you to receive top dollar when you sell.

 Clean, declutter, depersonalize – The first thing every home seller needs to do is take a
critical look at their home and clear out the distractions. Cleaning the home/yard is a
must. Remove anything that can draw a buyer’s eye away from the beauty of the home.

 Redecorate – Professional home stagers, like Kate Ross, Homes & Staging advise their
clients to remove and/or 
replace furnishings. Even if you love over sized furniture, it can
make the room look 
small; consider renting more neutral pieces during the listing.

 Perfect Condition – No home is perfect, but before you list take care of deferred
maintenance issues. Replace missing roof tiles, repaint any area that is worn or dirty,
and re-sod your lawn; remember; buyers want to know the home has “good bones.”

 Update carefully – It’s not important for home sellers to have the latest countertops
custom bathtub to get a good value for their home. Often the home updates/improvements
sellers undergo cost more than they would lose in sales price 
without them. If your home is
very dated, consider a seller credit instead to allow the 
buyer to choose their own upgrades.
Homes retain value based on a few factors; the location, the condition and the features.
