Real Estate Isn’t Rocket Science

Selling your home on your own will save you thousands of dollars on agent commission.
Here’s the step-by-step process—everything you need to know from start to sold. Let’s get moving.


Planning to sell your home in the near future? Here are some quick tips to help you get on the path to moving.

  • Begin to think about the transaction as a business deal. Remove emotions & concentrate on achieving your goals.
  • Determine your goals. Be sure to have a range from what’s ideal to what’s acceptable.
    • Financial: How much can you make from the sale.
    • Timing: Is there a specific time period you are looking to sell within.
  • Make repairs or improvements. Replace broken tiles, fix leaky faucets, ceiling cracks, resurface driveways, etc.
  • Consider renting a storage unit. Most homes show better with less furniture and more open space.
  • De-clutter. Find a place to store all those un-necessary items to make your home more attractive.
  • Re-organize. Make sure closets and drawers are neatly organized as potential buyers will often look behind the scenes.
  • Depersonalize. Remove personal photos, religious or political items so people don’t get distracted and can picture themselves living in your home.
  • Clean & refresh. Repaint, wash windows, wax floors, dust everything.
  • Make sure your home has curb appeal. Makes sure to keep the exterior of your home groomed. Manicure the lawn & shrubs, clear sidewalks, fix broken gutters and paint if needed.
  • Consider buying a home warranty. This not only allows for repairs to be paid for up until you sell your home, but it is a great differentiator when buyers are considering homes to purchase.
