We're Thinking of Selling in Spring: Anything We Should Be Doing Now?


We're not ready to sell our home now but once our daughter is out of high school next year, we'll want to make a change.  Is there anything we should be doing in the meantime?

If you've been in your house for a few years and busy with work and family, it's possible some repairs may be needed.  Consider having a certified building inspector in to do a report for you.  If anything should be done, you can look after it now.  That report can provide peace of mind along with being an excellent rebuttal tool if buyers have questions or unreasonable demands next spring.

A few updates if age and location of your home warrant it can make a major difference.  Check with a professional to ensure that money spent is worthwhile.

Start clearing out that extra "stuff".  Homes with ample storage space and an open feel often sell more quickly and at a better price.

Have a clear idea of where you want to go and whether that's realistic.  Planning ahead with your financial advisors and real estate professional will make everything easier.
