Marketing Your Home For A Successful Sale

Marketing your home isn’t as simple as posting it online and throwing a “For Sale” sign in your yard.

My goal when marketing your home is to increase awareness, attract interest, and get more potential buyer through the door. Here’s my step-by-step process to marketing your home effectively.

Price it right

Wondering if you should price your home in line with the market or bump it up a little “just to see what happens?” Here’s the answer: Overpricing your home (even by a few thousand) is the #1 way to sabotage your chances of getting top dollar for your home. Here’s why:

Buyer agents know what your home is worth and if a home is overpriced they’re going to say so. A home priced correctly will ALWAYS generate more interest and sell faster.
If you price your home higher than what it’s actually worth, it may not appraise by the buyer’s lender, and we risk losing a contract or going back to negotiations. If we go back on the market, that’s a bad look for new potential buyers.

The longer the home sits on the market, the worse it looks to potential buyers.

To get an accurate price on your home, I will gather data and help you analyze comps, location, size, age, condition, updates, and other factors that point to a price that will strike the right balance between current market conditions and the features that make your home attractive for buyers.


Before we have a professional photographer and videographer come to your property, it’s crucial that we properly prepare. Our goal is to sell your home for the most amount of money possible, in the shortest amount of time. Here are some tips for maximizing your return on investment:

Focus on curb appeal. First impressions matter so make this one count. Consider pressure washing, fresh paint on doors and shutters, replacing house numbers, and a new mailbox. And of course, clean out the flowerbeds, spread fresh mulch, and plant some seasonal flowers.

Make sure your kitchen shines. Kitchens sell houses, so make yours stand out by clearing out the clutter and updating the hardware. And please, please, please, make sure it’s clean!

Reduce furniture and decorations to a minimum. Too much or too big furniture will make your rooms look small and choppy. Arrange the furniture in a way that makes each room feel spacious, homey, and easy to navigate.

Depersonalize your home. Remove all the family photos, keepsakes, refrigerator art, toys, and personal items in the bathroom. You want the buyer to easily envision themselves in your home — not you in your home.


According to the NAR, 37% of contracts fall through because of repair issues sellers could have addressed before listing their property.

Once your buyers go under contract, they’ll most-likely have inspections done on the property. If they are financing, the home will need to be able to pass the inspection in order to obtain home insurance and secure the loan. Because of this, consider making any repairs to your home prior to putting it on the market.

If it’s recommended, schedule a pre-sale inspection. Then you’ll know precisely what needs to be addressed from a functional standpoint. Invest in repairing major systems first. Think HVAC, plumbing, roofing, foundation, or electrical issues.



The photos & videos of your home directly influence whether or not a potential buyer will schedule a showing of your home or not. It is crucial that we capture high quality, professional photo & video of your home showcasing the best qualities and features.
