Selling Tips


Selling your home can be an emotional experience. Around Rock Rapids there is a definite pride of ownership amongst us all. Below are some tips to help get your home ready for this journey.


One of the most important factors of marketing your home is pricing it right. Your price should be adjusted to reflect the market, and the property's worth. The key is to get many people checking out your property at a fair price instead of having no buyers because your price is set too high.


Another important factor is the condition of your home. Make sure that your home looks ready to be sold. Fix any defects (peeling or faded paint, cracks, stains, etc.) Condition alone can sometimes prompt fast buying decisions. Not only should you fix any defects, but consider upgrading your home by making major repairs and cosmetic improvements before selling. A nice looking home triggers the emotional response that can lead to a financial response.


Typically, there are some general fix ups that need to be done both outside and on the inside. As a seller, you should consider the following:

  • Landscaping – Has the front yard been maintained? Are areas of the house visible to the street in good condition?
  • Declutter – Is your home too full is there a different way to store your items while the home is for sale? The larger the room looks, the better.
  • Painting – Do both the exterior and the interior look like they have been well taken care of?
  • Carpeting – Does the carpet have stains? Or does the carpet look old and dirty?
