Steps to selling a house

  1. Clean: You’ll want your home to give potential buyers a good first impression. Not only can a dirty home distract buyers from appreciating your home’s finest features, but it can also give the impression that you haven’t taken care of bigger maintenance items.
  2. Repair and touch up: Even if you don’t have any major repairs
    that need to be taken care of, it’s important to go through your home and complete any minor repairs you’ve been putting off.
  3. We will walk thru your home and point out some items that may
    need touching up-staging. We will recommend Patching holes, repairing trim, and repainting can make a big difference.
  4. Staging: There are two ways to stage your home. First, you can
    declutter and arrange furniture in a way that highlights your home’s best attributes. Or, you can hire a professional stager. It’s important to help potential buyers picture themselves living in the home.
  5. Pricing:
    • The process of selling with an agent: When you’re
      working with BoardWalk Premier Realty, you can rely on
      our expertise to guide you to an accurate list price. We will start by providing you a comparative market analysis (CMA, commonly known as comps).

What is a comparative market analysis?

Often abbreviated as a CMA, a comparative market analysis is a report your real estate agent provides you that includes a compilation of recent sales from your area. It focuses on homes that are similar to yours and includes home details, days on the market, and the final sale price. A good CMA can help you select the right price for your own home.
