Here’s five tips Nathan has also provided that are important in selling your home:

Details

It is important to know the ins and outs of your property. Pull out a copy of your existing loan and review important details such as your property taxes and zoning regulations. Each listing will also need to show the lot size, square footage of the home, the termite certificate, and any contingencies you’d like to include. We recommend having professional listing photos and 3D views taken of your home to showcase the property and make it appealing to potential buyers.

Current Market

We can help you determine a realistic listing price for your home based on the current market value taking into consideration your neighborhood and of course your household upgrades by completing a comparative market analysis while maximizing top dollar, higher sales price and a higher list to sales price ratio. 

Property Law

Disclosure laws is something most sellers don’t consider, but an experienced real estate agent can coach you on the best practices for disclosures on your home. You will also need to set the terms of your sale. Nathan Fitts & his team will hold your hand through every step of the way.

Prepare/Staging

Make your home as enticing as possible to potential buyers. It’s difficult for buyers to imagine themselves and their belongings in a home when all of your personal sentiments are still intact. While you may think it makes more sense to empty out your entire home, in fact staging your home with increase the likelihood of receiving an offer.  Nathan Fitts & Team have made many people true believers of home staging.  It gives those listings the competitive edge. It creates an atmosphere for potential buyers to visualize themselves in the home by improving the flow & eliminating clutter, thus making your home appear more inviting. Professional staging is one of the first things to consider when selling a home. With most buyers beginning their home search online, professional staging is a must, and the result will show in the professional photos.  The home presents better from the start & ultimately leads to more buyer traffic and less time on the market.  If you would like more information on home staging, check out www.NorthGeorgiaHomeStaging.com.
