Do your 2020 plans call for selling your Colorado home? Make sure you are prepared before the home buying and selling season begins by following these five steps.
Connect with a REALTOR®
First things first, connect with a local real estate agent. I will help you determine the best time to put your home on the market. I can also help with the next steps on this list with their real estate expertise. Even though you aren’t ready to put your house on the market right away, connecting with me early makes you more prepared when it’s time to sell.
Take care of any major repairs
Don’t wait until the last minute to take care of repairs on your home. While some changes, like fresh paint or staging, can wait until the last minute, take care of major home repairs now. Reach out to contractors early for a time and cost estimate for any repairs needed. Local contractors can book appointments weeks in advance. Allow extra time for any major work, should unexpected problems come up. Make sure home repairs don’t delay when you can put your home on the market. Need a list of local contractors? Give me a call.
Make a “To-Do” list
Make a list of the things you need to do before putting your home on the market. It helps to prioritize items and create a timeline for when you want each project finished.
Do your research
Be as prepared as possible before you list your home for sale. Research housing market trends and ask for insight on the real estate market.
Start your next home search
Okay, so you probably won’t want to purchase a home before you’re ready to sell your current home. However, starting your home search early can help you learn about your preferences and prepare you when it is time to start seriously looking. It’s never to early to start looking for homes and analyzing the market. Give me a call today.
