Prepare Your Home for Sale

Well before you’re ready to plant that “For Sale” sign in your front yard, there is work to be done to prepare your home for sale.

Remember how keen your eye was to every small detail and defect in the houses you saw as a buyer? Now that door to your bedroom that never quite closed properly or that leaky faucet that you never got around to fixing will be seen by a potential buyer with that same keen eye.

Start making the obvious repairs today – even if you don’t plan to sell until a year from now. These repairs can cost money and take time. Plus fixing it now will allow you to enjoy the results before it’s time to move out.

If you plan on doing some improvements before the sale, the best place to start is where the buyers start: at your curb. Potential buyers base a large part of their decision on a property’s “curb appeal,” so make yours say something positive. That means a tidy front yard, a house with well-painted trim, a tidy driveway and a clear, welcoming entryway.

Inside, the biggest return on your investment continues to be improvements to the kitchen, followed closely by improvements to the master bedroom. If you’re making these improvements shortly before selling the house, consider painting and decorating the rooms in neutral colors, the most appealing choice to the greatest number of potential buyers.

Inside and outside, start reducing the clutter. When it comes time to show your home, less will mean more. Potential buyers don’t want to see how your closets overflow with clothes, how every room feels cramped with furniture, or how the yard is difficult to manoeuvre with that rusty swing set in the way. So downsize now; it not only will make the preparation for showing your home easier, it also will make packing for your move faster.

Find a Real Estate Professional

That's where Ken Grech comes in...

If you’ve been through the home-buying process, you already know how complicated the real estate business can be. While you can opt to sell your home yourself, it can be time-consuming and often not worth the money saved on commissions.

However, if you do hire a real estate professional as your selling agent, do your homework. Ask friends and family for recommendations, interview several candidates, attend a few open houses and watch the professional in action. Do you think this person would present your house well to potential clients?

If you’ve been through the home-buying process, you already know how complicated the real estate business can be. While you can opt to sell your home yourself, it can be time-consuming and often not worth the money saved on commissions.

However, if you do hire a real estate professional as your selling agent, do your homework. Ask friends and family for recommendations, interview several candidates, attend a few open houses and watch the professional in action. Do you think this person would present your house well to potential clients?

When interviewing me or another candidate, ask him or her to prepare a “comparative marketing analysis” for your house. This might include a demographic of the neighborhood, the quality of schools in the area and a suggested list price for the property.

If you’ve chosen me or another real estate professional to help sell your home, you’ll have to sign a contract stating that you’ll work solely with them for a designated number of months, often between one and six months. This means no other real estate professional will be allowed to sell your home on your behalf during this time.

So put some thought into the professional you choose and if you decide to choose me, I will help you sell your home to a qualified buyer for the highest market price in the quickest, most convenient timeline.

Working with Ken was extremely easy and he was very approachable when any questions or concerns were raised. He is very professional and does not waste time. When my husband and I would meet with him he would always make sure to go through all of the paperwork with us in a timely fashion (which can be tough when signing a thousand different documents). We really enjoyed working with Ken and could tell he was a very trustworthy individual.

For us Ken Grech is one of the best all around. He is honest, trustworthy, and very knowledgeable with property. I would never buy from any other person ever! This is our second time around with Ken and hopefully he will be their for our 3rd. Everyone knows it's always stressful selling / buying property, but with someone like Ken Grech on your side it becomes a great experience. It becomes easy when you have someone looking out for your best interest. We appreciated everything you did for us Ken.

Condos Woodland Hills
Ken is an excellent realtor. He did an incredible job selling our house in 3 days during a pandemic. His attention to detail and his outstanding communication skills put him at the top. We were so impressed with his hard work and dedication that we are recommending him to all of our famjly and friends. It was a pleasure working with him. He knew we were nervous about leaving our home of 24 years and moving to a new state so he helped facilitate connecting us to a great realtor in the state we were moving to. He also researched nice areas in the new state to recommend to us. He helped us from start to finish. All of his help and guidance made the transition so easy. Working with Ken was a pleasure. He was there for us from the begining til the end. He met all of our expectations and guided us through the whole process with his expertise. It was a smooth and stress free transition because of Ken.

Ken acted in a professional manner. I was very impressed with his knowledge of real estate, He read the sales data of surrounding homes perfectly, leading to my home to be sold on its first showing for higher than its listing price.
by Teresa Richard
Golf Course Homes Ventura Hills
Ken was on top of the deal all the way through. If you want an local area expert in real estate we highly recommend working with Ken. This was a very easy sell/buy experience and we are more than pleased with Ken's performance. Had it not been for his local knowledge, we likely would not have been able to purchase the beautiful Morrison Highland Estates house that we did. Ken is a true professional.

We met Ken at an open house and he seemed kind and knowledgeable. Ken was very valuable in the selection of a great neighborhood for our daughter to grow up in. All communications and documentation was very timely. Ken handled any problems that came up during the escrow period. Ken is very polite and cares for his clients and their future home. Ken made the whole process easy.
