Chad Cabalka discusses how home sellers can prepare their homes for sale and choose the best real estate agent to help them.
Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network:
Chad explained: “After the home seller has decided to put their home on the market, it is time to prepare. They should start by fixing up any cosmetic issues that could affect potential buyers’ first impressions of their home. Then, it’s good to make sure everything looks tidy and clean; give walls a fresh coat of paint if needed, replace or repair worn carpets and fix any cracked tiles in the bathroom. Clear away clutter, rearrange furniture so spaces look more open, and trim trees or hedges outside if necessary. They may also want to consider staging their home—this will help highlight its best features and appeal to potential buyers.”
After a home has been prepared for sale, it is time to choose the right real estate agent to help the seller through the process. Sellers should make sure they select an agent who has lots of experience in their area and is current on market trends. They should be knowledgeable about the process, willing to answer all their questions, and have a track record of successful sales. It’s helpful to ask friends or family for referrals, research agents online, and take the time to talk with them.
Finally, it is essential to remember that the key is patience once the seller has prepped their home and chosen an agent. Selling a house can be long, but it’s important to remain patient and rely on a trusted real estate professional to get through it successfully.
