If you are like us we love the fall real estate season in the greater Philadelphia area. We start to get some relief from the heat and fall foliage can be great to showcase your beautiful home.
Right now is a great time to start preparing if you are thinking of listing your home, buying a new one or even renting. For that matter, if you have a neighbor who is selling, you will want to listen up as well.
Traditionally Fall can be one of the busiest seasons in the real estate industry. Buying and selling real estate can be fun if you are prepared. Follow these three easy tips to get started today.
Start Cleaning Now
If you are selling your home start cleaning now. The remaining weeks of the summer and life in general will make the time go much faster than it seems. Start throwing out junk and donating or selling your stuff now. It will not only feel great to have less clutter but it will get you prepared for showing your home and hopefully help you get a jump before your big move.
Help Your Neighbors Sell
If you are friends with a neighbor who is selling their place, you should want to help them attract the best person possible to live next door to you, especially in the city. Most people don’t think about it, but you will be the one living next to the new residents. You can easily help by talking to your neighbor and asking how you can help. Some neighbors simply make sure that the exterior of their own home is clutter free. Others may offer to be available the day of the open house to answer any questions that potential buyers may have about the neighborhood.
Select Your Agent Carefully
Just because you used someone in the past doesn’t mean they are up for the role of being your real estate agent this time around. We suggest you do some research and see who will best fit your needs for buying and selling. In many cases it is the largest purchase you will ever make. Don’t hold onto false loyalty with someone who may not have it for you. Remember you are in charge and you should feel comfortable picking a real estate professional with the reach to advertise and promote your home using all traditional and modern tools. The right agent will help you cut down on stress and focus on what matters most.
