Research has shown that homes that are properly prepared show better and can result in spending less time on the market.  With many properties on the market, buyers can often be choosy, in addition to having their own set of preferences. Hence, having your home in its best condition will likely help generate the higher offers compared to homes not properly prepared. When you are ready to sell your home and list it, there are steps you can take to help generate higher offers for your home which means more money in your pocket!  Don't forget to folloq the advice of your RE/MAX associate and use these simple tips fron our exclusive Fit to Sell program.
