Preparing Home/Property

Before putting your home on the market, we want to make it look the most attractive to potential buyers by helping showcase and accentuate the best features of your home, without incurring unnecessary expenses. Main Street Real Estate Group provides all sellers with a detailed Home Preparation Consultation and a Selling Tips Sheet to keep you connected throughout the whole process. As we walk through your property, we will discuss minor repairs, curb appeal tips, staging, and how to make your property feel welcoming to potential buyers.

Determining List Price

Pricing your home competitively at the start will create more activity among brokers and buyers, while helping lead to a more successful sale. Establishing the value and list price for your property involves researching and comparing similar properties and weighing factors including: location, condition, amenities, and market conditions. We will arrive at a competitive price aimed at generating strong buyer activity. Throughout the process your broker will send you updates with any changes within the market.
