Thinking about putting your home on the market? Hi, I’m Vanessa Griffin, with Griffin Real Estate Group, and I have 5 steps that will help your home sell quickly and for top dollar! Today we’re talking about step one, which is making sure your home is priced appropriately. A qualified Real Estate Professional can do a CMA, or Current Market Analysis to take the guess work out of pricing. The CMA will be based on similar homes in your area that have sold, ideally in the last 6 months. This is where it’s really important to make sure that you are working with a Realtor that knows the market in your area and that you can trust. While it’s great that your second cousin’s boyfriend’s mom just got her license, they may not be the best choice to handle what is likely to be one of the most expensive transactions you will ever make. If you’re interested in getting a Comparative Market Analysis of your home, to see what it’s worth, connect with me, Vanessa Griffin at Griffin Real Estate Group and I hope you have a great home buying and selling day!

Today we’re talking about curb appeal! You only have one chance to make a first impression, and many buyers will do a drive by before they ever schedule an actual showing of your home. Before you list:

1. Make sure the yard is mowed and flower beds are free of weeds
2. Pressure wash sidewalks, driveways, and the exterior of your home
3. Freshen up mulch in your flowerbeds.
4. Add a little color using plated or potted plants.
5. Address any wood rot or peeling paint on eaves and dormers.
6. Finally, pay special attention to your front door area. Most people rarely go in and out of their own front door, and
miss things like cobwebs, bird nests, and huge wasps nests.

To see what you can to do get the exterior of your home ready to list connect with me, Vanessa Griffin at Griffin Real Estate Group.

Thinking about putting your home on the market? Hi, I’m Vanessa Griffin, with Griffin Real Estate Group, and I’m back with step 3 of my 5 steps that will help you get your home ready to list, and sell quickly for top dollar! Today we are moving inside and decluttering!! Prospective buyers need to be able to see their families in the home…not yours. Take down all of the family pictures and keepsakes cluttering shelves and walls.
You also want to move or remove any furniture that is blocking walkways, or making rooms feel small or cramped. Consider this a good time to get a jumpstart on moving! Box up things you won’t need over the next few months and move them to storage….when you get under contract you’ll already be halfway finished!
Also, make sure you do a deep clean of your home or have it professionally cleaned if necessary and touch up any paint, especially baseboards and doors.
If you want more information on decluttering your home, and getting it ready to sell, connect with me, Vanessa Griffin, at Griffin Real Estate Group.
