We all have some level of planning involved in our lives. Whether that be coordinating pick-up and drop-off for the kids, tickets for summer vacation next summer, or perhaps a movie on the weekend – they all involve planning!
Planning and preparation are also an essential part of selling your home successfully. That doesn’t mean only getting the most value out of the sale financially, but also making the move when it is convenient and affordable for you (and family).
Therefore when you start thinking about making a move its important you plan things thoroughly and pay attention to all the details, otherwise you may end up not as happy with your home sale as you should!
Your home is an invaluable asset, most importantly because it facilitates life, love and all of your basic needs.
Second to that it is an asset worth a tremendous amount of money. Anything you can do to improve its value, minimize the time on market and ultimately maximize your sale price becomes extremely important.
