Selling your home can be a stressful and daunting task, but with the right preparation, you can ensure that your home is ready to sell and fetch the best price possible. It’s a fabulous time to leverage the busy spring real estate market. If you’re not sure where to start, here are some helpful tips on how to prepare your home to sell:
1. Declutter and Clean
The first step in preparing your home for sale is to declutter and clean it thoroughly. Remove any unnecessary items and clutter to make your home look more spacious and inviting. We love donating items to the Ridgefield Thrift Shop and ReStore Danbury, both very worthy causes that support the community we live in. Thoroughly clean all surfaces, including floors, walls, and countertops. Consider hiring a professional cleaner if necessary. We’d be happy to recommend one if you need!
2. Repair and Upgrade
Fix any minor repairs or upgrades that need to be done, such as leaking faucets or broken doorknobs. If your home needs major repairs or upgrades, consider hiring a professional to handle the work. Upgrades can include painting, new light fixtures, or landscaping to improve curb appeal. It can be overwhelming to try to find a contractor or handyman who can do the work in a timely fashion. We have several companies we’ve developed excellent relationships with over the years and they take excellent care of our clients.
3. Depersonalize and Stage
Remove personal items like family photos, collectibles, and personal memorabilia from your home. This allows potential buyers to visualize themselves living in the space, which is so important. Consider staging your home with neutral decor and furniture to create a welcoming and cozy atmosphere. This is just one of the services that Compass Concierge is proud to offer, which makes the selling process run so much more smoothly for our clients.
4. Price Your Home Accurately
One of the most important steps in preparing your home for sale is pricing it accurately. Research the local real estate market and work with a real estate agent to determine a fair and competitive price for your home. For over 20 years, the Karla Murtaugh Homes mission has been to provide a superior experience for our clients both through the utilization of our team’s knowledge and skills and by adhering to the highest standard of integrity. We have the experience to get you the best price for your home.
5. Market Your Home Effectively

We will leverage cutting-edge Compass technology and national network to market your home effectively to potential buyers through online listings, social media, and other advertising channels.
6. Be Flexible and Available
Plan to accommodate potential buyers’ schedules and be available for showings as needed.
Getting your home ready to sell requires some effort and planning, but the results are worth it. With a little groundwork, you can make your home more appealing to potential buyers and ensure a smooth and successful sale.
