Do You Have All Your Ducks In A Row? Tips For Selling A Home In Ozark MO

Get Your Ducks In A Row


Its the time of year that a lot of people want to sell their home. Spring weather is here, the grass is green and trees and flowers are budding out. If you want to sell a home in Ozark, here are some tips to get it ready to sell.

  • Curb Appeal - It doesn't matter how nice your home is inside if buyers drive on by. The outside of your home needs to look spectacular! Keep the lawn mowed and trimmed, plant colorful flowers in beds or pots, keep trash cans, bicycles, toys, and other objects put away, and don't park cars in your driveway or in the street in front of your home.
  • Stage your home - clean, declutter, and depersonalize your home. Pack up extra stuff you don't need and put it in storage. You'll need to do it anyway when we sell your home. This allows potential buyers to visualize themselves in the home instead of being distracted by your photographs, etc...  Staging is also giving each room a specific purpose which is different than interior decorating.
  • Price your home according to the market. Face it, you won't get what your home was worth at the peak of the real estate bubble, but on the other hand you can turn around and buy more home than you could afford then too.

Really cute picture of ducks and the tips are so true.  Isn't it strange how some sellers don't prepare their houses at all?

Betty - I love the title and the picture. It's time to start listing those homes.
