Light bulb Donna's Seller Tip

"If a picture is worth a thousand words, the photos posted online of your home can either help it sell quickly . . . or discourage people from even wanting to attend an open house. I use a professional photographer who pays attention to all the details to make sure you have the best looking pictures of your home."

Step 1

Finding the Right Price Point

The first step in selling your home is to find the right price point.

Donna makes this step easy. She'll research similar homes in your neighborhood (called "comparables") and compile a list of sale prices, then use that to determine the perfect asking price for your home.

People often price their home too high, leading to a frustrating selling experience that takes much longer than necessary. Here's a tip from Donna: "Only sell your home when you’re sure you really do want to sell it. Then, price it in a range that makes sense for the market."

Step 2

Augmenting Your Home's Curb Appeal

The second step in selling your home is to augment its curb appeal.

Enhance the look of your home means increasing the chance that someone will want to buy it! You want to create a great first impression.

This means sprucing it up with a fresh coat of paint, cleaned up yard, flowers in planters, a brand new front door. Clear out clutter, repaint walls so they’re more neutral, replace worn carpeting.

Donna can even help you “stage” your house, which makes it look like it’s move-in ready, giving buyers a feel for what how it might look if they lived there.

Marketing Your Home Properly

The third step in selling your home is to market your home properly.

Donna works to make sure your home is listed online and has outstanding photos that really show off its assets. Donna also lists your property in print media, including the local newspapers, to give you the broadest possible exposure.

In addition, Donna puts your home on national websites like Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com to ensure the highest visibility of your home to potential buyers both locally and across the nation.
