Are You Fit to Sell?

Selling a house can be stressful. Making the decision, preparing the house for sale, keeping it clean, waiting for a buyer, dealing with offers, and advancing to the closing table – all of these steps can involve discomfort. This is a huge financial transaction with many emotional aspects. But you can get it done – and it may even be easier than you anticipate.

As a home seller, the goal is to sell at the best possible price and as quickly as possible. This doesn’t happen by accident; you need to prepare your home for a successful sale. Research shows, properly prepared homes, show better and spend less time on the market. With many homes on the market, buyers can be choosy. Having your home in its best condition, will help generate the higher offers than homes not properly prepared.

To help, RE/MAX has produced a series of short videos and resources, called “Are You Fit To Sell?” Check out these resources below for strategies, tips and checklists to ensure your home is “Fit to Sell.”
