Prepare to Sell

As an owner, you can do a lot to increase the appeal of the property you’re selling, and to make a lasting impression on potential buyers. We can take care of that for you, too – we have staging experts we work with who can prepare your home for sale, making it even more appealing to potential buyers to maximize market conditions – which means more money in your pocket.

Preparing Your Home for Sale

The following are just a few things that we consider and guide you on when preparing your home for sale. We also have our favorite contacts in the renovation and staging industry we can connect you with.

  1. Curb Appeal

    A pristine landscape and creative touches, such as colorful annuals, will create an immediate impact on passers-by and potential buyers.

  2. Property Repairs.

    Simple upgrades like window repairs, polishing doorknobs, or applying a fresh coat of paint to your most frequently-used rooms are important. If you need more than a coat of paint, we can also recommend our favorite contractors to help ensure that your property will be bright and fresh when it goes on the market.

  3. Staging Your Home

    Your Richardson Properties agent will begin by reviewing your property before it’s listed for sale to see how it can be improved with staging and aesthetics. We know what makes a difference to open houses and private appointments with motivated buyers.

    Staging professionals can keep your property uncluttered, sweet-smelling and well-lit from top-to-bottom. Fresh flowers near the entryway, a batch of cinnamon rolls in the oven, having your carpets cleaned, and other details specific to your home can make the difference between a trickle of interest or a tidal wave of buyers.

  4. Disclosures and Inspections

    At Richardson Properties, our skilled agents simplify the legal procedures involved in disclosures, and are ready to help guide you through the development of a disclosure statement beneficial to both you and the buyer. We’ll also help you decide if you should obtain advanced inspections before listing your property on the market, such as appraisals, termite and pest inspections.

  5. Showtime!

    Presenting your property to potential buyers is another job we take care of for you. Buyers feel more comfortable discussing the property with the agent if the owner isn’t there. We know what information is most useful in representing your interests when speaking with prospective buyers.
