How Many Steps Does it Take to Sell Your Home? Two.

So have you bought that pumpkin spice latte yet? Watched a little football? Craved some casseroles and soup? Leaves aren’t the only things that change this time of year – with the change of seasons often comes the need to tidy up, clean out, and clean up. Call it nesting, man caving, hunkering down, whatever. We just know when it’s this time of year there is work to be done before winter settles in.

Maybe you’ve been thinking of selling your home for some time, but the thought of getting it ready has been too daunting. We know from experience that the first step of cleaning out the clutter can be the hardest -- physically, mentally and emotionally.

The good news is, we’ve got a fool-proof plan to get you going. And since you’re in clean-out mode anyway, you’re setting yourself up for selling this spring without feeling rushed or overwhelmed.

Step 1: Here are some resources to get started on your fall clean out (below).

Step 2: Give us a call and we’ll handle all the rest of the 548 steps to get your home prepared and SOLD by spring (or sooner)!
