Begin by Making a Home Sale Plan

Sit down and begin by making a to-do list of everything that needs to be done during the home selling process. This will allow you to break down everything that has to happen into small, manageable steps and focus on prioritizing what is most important.

Start by interviewing and selecting a real estate agent. Finding the right agent to work with is important, and it isn’t a one-and-done process. Start interviewing agents soon to find an experienced agent that has a proven record of home sales in your area for the most money possible.

Ask for references, and if possible, even get recommendations from friends and family.

Start Packing

This is where it can get tricky. Buyers need to see themselves in your home, and it can get difficult with your belongings in the home. Start packing as soon as possible, before the home is listed or pictures are taken. The fewer items in your home will make it look bigger and cleaner, which will ultimately benefit the sale. Rent a storage unit and keep items there to make your home as neat as possible.

Make Repairs

Talk to your real estate agent and find out how much money you should invest in any necessary repairs in the home. Issues will present themselves during inspections and can potentially turn away buyers. A list of all projects like cracked tile, leaky faucets, doors that don’t close, burned-out bulbs, etc. can be made and handed to your real estate agent who can let you know which to fix and which to leave for the buyers to fix.

Deep Clean

Deep clean inside and outside your home. This goes beyond the standard cleaning that you do on a weekly basis. Buyers will give your home a thorough look, and often base their decision on what the house looks like, including the upkeep. Consider bringing in a professional to do the cleaning for you.

Deep cleaning includes hardwood floor refinishing, carpet cleaning, bathroom and kitchen deep cleaning (including appliances and cabinets), bathtubs, countertops, toilets. Remove any pet odors and consider lighting candles to neutralize any unpleasant odors.

Outdoor cleaning includes pressure washing your sidewalks, decks, and windows. You may even consider caulking tubs, showers, and sinks.

Make Small Upgrades

Making small improvements to the home can help it stand out in the market against other homes and increase the value. Kitchen and bathroom improvements have a high return and small improvements like cabinet knobs, light fixtures, showerheads, and faucets can carry a large impact.

Landscaping and Curb Appeal

Make your home as appealing from the street as possible. The first impression a buyer will get from your home is when they pull up at the curb.

Staging of Your Home

Showing off your home by using the right furniture lights, and accents. Talk to your real estate agent about the best way to increase the appeal of your home without breaking the bank.

Home Inspection

During the sale process, an inspection will take place at the request of the buyers. If you’ve already had an inspection and repaired anything large that appeared, there will not be any surprises.

Showings

Buyers will tour your home with their real estate agent, booked through YOUR real estate agent. If you are still living in your home, it is important that you are flexible to leave the home quickly for a showing to take place.

At Alpha Omega, we not only offer restoration services for fire, water, and mold, but our deep cleaning services will assist with any Billings Heights, Red Lodge, Laurel, or Billings West End homes. Call us today to schedule a service call.

Reviews from Our Clients

"Luckily I have never needed to use a restoration company, but as someone who has worked closely with Alpha Omega, they have treated my clients very well, and have always been honest and very transparent. Although their whole team is very professional and punctual, Carissa and Sonya have been great to work with."

"Best service in town! I had water leaking through my basement ceiling from the overflow drain in my upstairs bathtub. They showed up immediately after I called, they were super professional and helped me find the leak and even told me how I can fix it myself. I was so impressed how well the turned my problem around."
