Selling your home for the first time includes many moving parts. From staging the home to showings, it’s important to understand these moving parts and be ready when it’s time to sell. When the house for sale sign goes up, you’ve made the decision to sell and look for a new home. Buying your first home may have felt exhausting but selling this house is a little bittersweet. Are you selling your first home? Here are some tips from a trusted real estate agent, Nancy Hibler.


Pricing Your Home

When you are ready to list your home for sale, make sure the price of your home is accurate. Find a listing agent to help deciding on an appropriate price. A listing agent will compare other properties and give an estimate on comparative market analysis. Stay away from choosing a family member who only dabbles in real estate from time-to-time. Find an agent who has experience and sells a large number of listings, preferably listings in your neighborhood.


Home Staging

Prepare your home for showings by having your home staged. Most often, homes that sell faster are ones with less furniture and clutter. You know your home is staged right when a buyer walks in the home and wonders if anyone lives there. Home staging can boost the appeal of your home and selling power. The most effective home improvement you can make before selling is painting. Don’t let small dings on the walls make your home less appealing and look unmaintained. If you are wondering if certain rooms have too much furniture or needs a little maintenance, contact Nancy Hibler and she can guide you in the right direction.


Showings and Open House

Schedule an open house if your home is on a road with major traffic. It’s an easy spot to put an open house sign and get people driving by to come see your home. Nancy Hibler can advise you if an open house is right for your house and can advertise the open house online. Home showings may feel intrusive when you allow strangers to come walk through your home but be flexible with the showings. If they become too much, book a weekend getaway somewhere and not worry about it.
