Do Not Enter SignIs your home for sale, but you keep refusing showings? They’re not convenient for you? You can’t get back to put the dog away? You didn’t clean the house or make the bed today?

To sell your home, you have to let people see it. The pictures online are rarely enough to clinch the deal.

Keeping your home ready for showings can be exhausting.  Trying to keep it clean for the no-notice showing or rearranging schedules or cancelling parties at the last minute for the “looky-loo” will wear you out. You almost have to literally bend over backwards to accomodate buyers who have no regard for your schedule.

But if you want to sell, you have to do it. You have to make your home available at the most inconvenient times for yourself. If you plan a party, it’s almost guaranteed that someone will call for a showing.

For this reason alone, you need to have your home ready to sell before you list your home. By doing all the work up front, the selling process will go faster, which means you will have to show to fewer buyers.

If you skip the deep cleaning or decluttering or staging or the realistic pricing of your home, you’ll have to show your home to more buyers to find that one that has the vision to see past the extra work your home may need.

Doing the work before you list will lead to a quicker sale and usually a higher price. Next thing you know, you’ll be on your way to your new home.
