 Frequently Asked Questions from Home Sellers

Selling a home can be an exciting yet daunting process, especially if you're doing it for the first time. It's natural to have many questions about the costs, preparation, staging, and value of your home. In this blog post, we'll address some of the most common questions home sellers ask to help you navigate the selling process with confidence.


Q: What are the costs of selling my home?

A: The cost of selling your home varies based on your specific circumstances. However, some standard expenses include:
- Real estate commission fees
-State and local transfer taxes

- Real Estate Attorney Fees

- Repairs  & cleaning



Q: How can I prepare my home for selling?

A: To get your home ready for sale, we suggest you:
- Complete necessary repairs (leaks, faulty wires, plumbing issues)

- Freshen up interior paint, and exterior if needed. 

- Repair and paint your front door. 

- Clean yard and freshen up your landscape to make a good first impression. 

-  Deep clean your home, and eliminate any odors from old carpets, pets, cooking and smoke. 

- Prepare your home for photographs and showings. Try to remove all personal photos, tidy and organize closets and make sure all your light fixtures are working.


Q: To stage or not to stage?

A: Finding the right balance is key. A staged home sells quicker than an empty one, but prospective buyers need to be able to picture themselves living there without being distracted by personal items and clutter. We offer complimentary simple staging to help you strike the perfect balance.


Q: How much is my home really worth?

A: Your home's value depends on various factors and current market inventory. We provide a complete analysis and a competitive home value estimation based on the current market conditions.
