So, you’re thinking about putting your home on the market. If you’re like most home sellers, your goal is to clinch a deal quickly without having to come down too much on your asking price. However, this is probably not going to happen unless you put some effort into shaping up your home to impress potential buyers. Here are some resources to help guide you through the process of getting your home ready to sell:


Decluttering and Packing


Before you do anything, the most important step is decluttering, organizing, and packing. While you don’t need to pack away everything, tucking away items you don’t need for a while can open up the space.

Cleaning and Upkeep


Once you’ve decluttered and organized, it’s time for a deep clean. You want your home spotless, and you need a plan to keep it that way. In addition to cleaning, you want to address repairs or necessary maintenance.
