Seller's FAQs

One of the most important things you can do is declutter and stage your home. Buyers want to see a clean, spacious, and well-organized home. Take a look around your home with a critical eye and get rid of anything that’s cluttered, damaged, or unnecessary. Then, take steps to make your home as inviting as possible. This might include adding a few key pieces of furniture or updating your décor.
In a pinch? 3-5 days. On average? U.S. sellers spend around six months preparing their homes for sale, another 25 days with their house on the market, and 30- to 45-days in the closing period ( Bottom line? When you’re ready to sell, I’ll be there whether it’s this week or six months from now!

Your home’s asking price should be based on its market value. Pricing a home can make or break a deal. It can mean the difference from selling quickly for over asking price and having your house sit while offering price reductions. To determine market value, contact your REALTOR®, they will look at comparable homes in your area that have recently sold and give you an accurate and professional estimate. You can also have a professional appraiser give you an estimate. Once you have a good idea of what your home is worth, you can work with your real estate agent to come up with the right asking price.

The short answer: Everything you know.

The longer answer: You’re required to provide a written description (your agent will give you the form)  about any known issues with your home that could hurt its value. Those issues include:

  • Termite damage
  • Presence of lead-based paint
  • Foundation cracks
  • Plumbing or HVAC issues
  • Septic or sewer problems
  • Homeowners association fees and restrictions.

The seller disclosure is good for buyers AND sellers. How? It brings transparency to the transaction, minimizes delays, and heads off the risk of legal headaches down the road.

It all comes down to T-I-M-E — and whether you’ve got a lot or a little of it!

Clock ticking and you need to increase value ASAP? Zero in on these weekend projects:

  • Clean, clean, and clean some more.
  • Give walls a fresh soft, neutral coat of paint.
  • Landscape with some low-maintenance (but green!) plants.
  • Power wash your driveway, sidewalks, and home exterior.
  • Declutter and consider staging.

Time on your side? Chip away at these little by little:

  • Remove a wall (or two!) to create open living spaces.
  • Replace carpeted floors with wood or LVP flooring.
  • Finish your unfinished basement.
  • Replace your old windows and front door.
  • Install new kitchen countertops and appliances.

Selling on the brain? The best thing you can do is have a quick consult with a REALTOR®. They can have a look around and let you know exactly what to do to have your home sitting pretty at top dollar. Ready to chat? Get in touch with me today!

Leah has been wonderful to work with. Buying a home usually involves some bumps, however, we were fortunate to have someone to smooth our path along the way. Leah is very responsive to your needs and I have really enjoyed working with her.

I am a first time home buyer and I couldn't have gone through this whole process without Leah! She is the real deal! She has so much knowledge in the local neighborhoods and was incredible about being able to navigate the extreme changes in the market. She knew how to negotiate with the sellers and when to push for a better deal. She kept me on track to find the kind of house that I had been dreaming of and she is quick to respond to you whenever you text her. I will never buy another house without Leah by my side. She knows what she's doing and is great at it!

Leah made the whole process so easy! I really appreciate how direct she was with the property, the listing agent, and me. She explained everything clearly and concisely, there was no wasting of time. She handled the whole endeavor with knowledge and skill to get us into our new home about as quickly and smoothly as possible. I felt understood, represented, cared for, and respected. Any question I had, or item that came up, she handled quickly and efficiently, making the home buying process about as easy as it can get. She also was a great referral source for our loan, insurance, inspection, and moving company. This girl has a lot of great companies in her corner to really round out the odds and ends of buying/selling/moving. Thank you for all the help!

Leah is awesome to work with! As a first time home buyer, Leah did an amazing job coaching me through every step of the home buying process. She was quick to respond, easy to get ahold of when I had questions, and was awesome in taking care of things that came up with my lender that I had no clue how to handle, even at the closing table! Pick Leah for your broker on your next home purchase, you will not regret it!
