If you're looking to put your house up for sale, then check out these tips to best prepare your home for prospective buyers, rising interest rates, competition and more.
1. Hiring a successful real estate agent.
While you can sell your property on your own, a broker can spare you from the difficulties you might experience during a sales transaction. They understand the dynamics of the industry and have skills that can help fast-track the process. They have connections and they know the right people to contact.

2. Pricing it right.
Pricing your home competitively instead of overpricing to "leave room for negotiation" can help engage more buyers. Consult a real estate expert and browse property portals to see the worth of houses in your area. Be realistic and consider the current market trends.
3. You Need to Clean, Stage, and Declutter as Best You Can.
Do the necessary repairs, declutter all areas, and ensure that the prominent spaces in the house like the kitchen and bathroom are clean. Storage is something every buyer is looking for and can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there. Staging a home takes it from zero to hero overnight!
4. Improve Curb Appeal.
The first thing a buyer sees is a home's external appearance and the way it fits into the surrounding neighborhood. Try to make certain that the exterior has a fresh coat of paint, and that the bushes and lawn are well manicured. In a market where there is an abundance of houses for sale, yours should stand out.
5. Be flexible with showing times.
The easier it is for agents to show a property, the more it will get shown. The more showings, the more offers. The more offers, the higher the offers!
