Matthew 7:12 reads, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” A great rule to live by, and if you paraphrase it, it becomes a great rule for sellers to follow when preparing to put property on the market.
“Prepare your property for sale so that it looks like a property you would want to purchase from someone else” is a simple, yet important reminder for anyone who wants to sell some real estate. Put yourself in a buyer‘s shoes and look at your home, cabin, commercial building, or even vacant land the way a buyer will view it. What would you be looking for in a place to live? What would be most important to you in purchasing a commercial building? What would you want to see in a building lot or in recreational property?
Answer these questions honestly, and then discuss your answers with your Johnson Hometown Realty professional, and address those factors as well as you can. The chances are good that potential buyers are using similar considerations as they look for their next purchase. By doing the things that will make your property stand out, even just a little bit, above those you are competing with, may very well make the difference between selling and not selling and between a low offer and top dollar.
