Do You Want To Sell A Home In Springfield Missouri? Make Sure It’s The Best Of The Best!

Do You Want To Sell A Home In Springfield Missouri?  Your home will have a LOT of competition out there. In order to compete you have to win on all fronts. Your home has to stand out on price and condition.

1. Condition. Make any necessary repairs before listing. Replace that broken doorknob and that burned out light bulb. Fresh paint and carpet can work wonders. Repaint those purple, pink, or other colored walls with neutral colors. Re-grout tile in the bath and caulk windows if needed. You get the idea.

2. Clean. Not just your normal cleaning routine; a deep down top to bottom cleaning. Have the carpets professionally cleaned. Clean everything you can think of!

3. De-Clutter. Clear off the kitchen countertops. Take those magnets off the refrigerator. If you aren’t using it, put it away – even if you have to rent a storage building.

4. Competitive Price. Your house has to be competitive with other similar homes in the area. This doesn’t mean what homes are listed for; it means what they have actually sold for recently. Homes ARE selling in Springfield; you just have to be ready for the intense competition out there.

You need a REALTOR® that will not sugarcoat the facts for you and that will market your home aggressively to sell. Remember, it doesn’t cost you anything to list your home with TeamKnowles until we get results!

Good advice. I spent the day looking at homes that smelled bad and looked dirty. We may have  made an offer on one if it had been clean.

Such good advice - the four C's!  Seems this is a constant refrain - but necessary.
