The Everything Guide to Selling Your Home

How to figure out exactly what you want, and how to work with the experts who’ll help you get it.

 


Know, Exactly, What You Want

First things first: You need to know what you want (and what your partner wants) in order to sell your home with minimum frustration. Why are you moving? What do you expect from the process? When, exactly, should you put that For Sale sign in the yard?

Do Your Research

Unless you bought your home last week, the housing market changed since you became a homeowner. Mortgage rates fluctuate, inventory shifts over time – these are just a few of the factors that affect the state of the market, and every market is unique. Educate yourself on what to expect.

Interview and Select an Agent

This is the most important relationship you’ll form on your home selling journey. Pick the right agent and you’ll likely get a better sales price for your house.

Price Your Home

How much is your home worth? That’s the … $300,000 question. Whatever the number, you need to know it.

Prep Your Home for Sale

Today, home buyers have unfettered access to property listings online, so you have to make a great first impression – on the internet and IRL. That means you’ll have to declutter all the stuff you’ve accumulated over the years, make any necessary repairs, and get your home in swoon-worthy condition.

Market Your Home

Home buyers look at countless listings online. The best-marketed homes have beautiful photos and compelling property descriptions, so they can get likes – which can amount to buyer interest – on social media. Some agents are even using videos, virtual tours, texts, and audio messages. It’s time to consider how to promote your property.

Showcase Your Home

One of the best ways to get buyers in the door is to have an open house. This is your chance to show off your home’s best assets, and help buyers envision themselves living there. Know how your agent will organize, advertise, and host the event to ensure it’s a success.

21 Simple Hacks to Clean Your House

Cleaning your house can take a lot of time, but it doesn’t have to be a hassle.  Here are some house cleaning hacks to make your job easier. Thank you to Sarah Harris of Electric Saw HQ for providing these tips!

Use Lemon to Clean a Stinky Garbage Disposal

Is your garbage disposal giving off an unpleasant odor? The solution is simple and happens to be one of my favorite cleaning tips for the kitchen. Toss a few slices of lemon into the disposal and turn it on! It cleans and deodorizes at the same time. The scent given off is so pleasant. Try using it before guests visit!

 

Easy Way to Clean the Dishwasher

It is easy to forget that we need to clean the appliances that clean our items. Dishwashers are no exception! One of the top house cleaning secrets is to use vinegar and baking soda to clean your dishwasher! On the top rack, place a container filled with white vinegar. Run on its hottest setting with nothing else. Then, add baking soda on the floor of the dishwasher and run a short hot cycle. You are going to love how clean it is now!

 

Quicken Drying Time

Sometimes, we cut our laundry too close, and we need to quicken the drying time. One of the fastest ways to reduce how long it takes to dry wet laundry is to put a clean, dry towel into your dryer. It has to go in with your wet clothes. Doing so will allow the towel to absorb extra moisture in the dryer. Soon, your load will be dry.

5 Tasks Every Homeowner Should Do in January

Whew. The holidays are done. The new year has rung in. That’s when smart homeowners know it’s time to do these five things that’ll save time, money, and hassles all year long:

#1 Organize Your Seasonal Storage Space
Packing away holiday decor presents a big opportunity. It’s the best time to sort, declutter, and reorganize that space where you store your seasonal stuff. So before simply stuffing your holiday things back in there somewhere, take inventory, then sort, filter, donate, trash, and re-home as many of your things as possible.

#2 Deep-Clean the Kitchen
All of that holiday merriment-making is rough on a kitchen. Give it a good deep cleaning now that the glittery dust has settled. Purge your pantry and frisk your fridge, passing what you can on to local food banks. Scrub the walls and kick-boards, and even pull those appliances right out from the walls for a thorough vacuuming to prevent gunk (and stinks!) from accumulating.

#3 Plan Summertime Projects Now
Finalize plans for any landscaping, decks, patios, or other outdoor projects that need warm weather. Two good reasons:

1. If you’re DIYing, you’ll be ready to roll at the first hint of nice weather.
2. If you’re hiring a contractor or other professional, getting your bids and contracts in place now will save you from competing with the spring rush (wait too long, and you may not be able to book anyone!).

#4 Create a Schedule to Clean ALL Your Home’s Filters
It’s not just your HVAC. The filters in your fridge, your vacuum cleaner, your dryer, your air filter, and other household items need to be changed or cleaned at least once a year to be effective, usually more often — especially your dehumidifier. Yucky mold grows easily there. Check manufacturer instructions for all the filters in your home, and create a master schedule, then add them to your calendar app to remind you.

#5 Save Some Green at White Sales
Linens and towels go on sale in January. It’s a long-standing retail tradition that started back when linens only came in white (hence the name), and still has a solid rep as a money-saver — only in more colors today.

Cut your threadbare bath towels into rags and restock your supply, plus fill in any gaps in your bed linens you may have noticed if you had a house full of holiday guests.
