Prepare to Sell

You can do a lot to increase the appeal of your property and to create a lasting impact on potential buyers.

What To Do To Prepare:

The following are a couple of factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale in Greater Philadelphia:

1. Curb Appeal.
Keeping your landscape pristine, and adding creative touches to your yard, such as colorful annuals, will create an immediate impact on passers-by and potential buyers.  The front door of a home in Philadelphia can play a huge part in upgrading your home’s curb appeal.  A nice front door will make your home inviting and can significantly increase the homes value.  Ask us how you can use COMPASS Concierge to increase your homes value.

2. Property Repairs.
Simple upgrades such as window repairs, polishing the doorknobs, and a fresh coat of paint in the most frequently used rooms will instantly brighten up the property.  Making all repairs is not always necessary though.  Ask Brett Rosenthal or anyone from the team at the Revolve Philly Group what you should repair before listing your property for sale.

3. Cleanliness and Staging.
Keep your property uncluttered, sweet-smelling and well-lit from top-to-bottom. Pay attention to details: put away the kitty litter, place a vase of fresh flowers near the entryway, pop a batch of cinnamon rolls in the oven, have your carpets cleaned. Your agent will scan the property before it is listed for sale to see how you can improve the staging of your property.  We have a curated collection of accessories to make you’re home an absolute hit when it goes on the market.

4. Disclosures and Inspections.
We are very familiar with the legal procedures involved in disclosures and are ready to help you develop a thorough disclosure statement beneficial to both you and the buyer, as well as suggest home improvement measures before placing your property on the market (such as termite and pest inspections).

5. Showtime.
Presenting your property to potential buyers is a job that we will take care of for you. Buyers feel more comfortable discussing the property with the agent, if you are not there. Moreover, your agent will know what information will be most useful in representing your interests when speaking with prospective buyers.  We know Philadelphia and when the proper time is to list the home, schedule open houses and set deadlines so that you get the highest possible value when you sell you’re property.
