T-minus 10 days until listing...
I'm new here and getting my feet wet on the forums. In 10 days we are going to be listing our home (a townhouse) for sale. I feel we have done everything we can to make it as desirable as possible.
--We hired a realtor who I believe will do the best she can for us.
--We hired a stager to identify anything we could do to make the house "show" nicely.
--Next week we are refreshing the home, making small cosmetic repairs, paint touch ups, cleaning the carpet, and fixing all issues. The house will be move-in ready with no issues (cosmetic or otherwise).
--We rented a storage unit to declutter and move things out of our closets and basement so that the home shows the most in terms of space.
I can't think of anything else that we should do and have taken every single recommendation given to us by the pros and implemented it. The market in my area is down (where isn't it?) and we will be losing money on the home...listing for much less than we paid. But we will never recover that loss, so we are just thankful we aren't underwater and wish to move on.
Am I missing anything? There are two other homes in our development currently for sale. They have been on the market for 5-6 months. While other homes have gone up and sold more quickly, these homes just sit. I want our home to be like the homes that have sold and not add a third listing that just sits. I am VERY nervous.
Anyone have any other tips or tricks to help sell my home that perhaps I haven't thought of?
Thanks for your thoughts!
