To Start

We understand that selling a home may be a difficult and stressful experience, so our goal is to turn this experience into a pleasant one. Preparing a home for sale can be challenging, but it's worth it to get the best price. Use our home sale checklist to ensure you cover all the necessary steps before listing.


- Paint the rooms that are bold or non-neutral colors to light neutral colors to appeal to the masses..

- Store away / box up most, if not all, personal photos and knick-knacks.

- Remove any storage containers (replace with baskets if needed).

- Replace damaged blinds and worn-out curtains.

- Make sure all your light bulbs are working (3000K to 3500K range for the best interior lighting).

- Clear all rooms of clutter until the floors are fully visible, keeping only essential furniture items in sight. Consider a bed, nightstands, and a lamp for bedrooms, or a desk, chair, and lamp in the office.

- Wash all your windows, hire professionals if your home is two stories.
