Preparing your Property

It takes careful planning and professional help when preparing to sell your home. Here are some areas to prioritize before deciding to list.

Keeping your landscape pristine, and adding creative touches to your yard, such as colorful annuals, will create an immediate impact on passers-by and potential buyers.

Repairs/Upgrades

Simple upgrades such as window repairs, polishing the doorknobs, and a fresh coat of paint in the most frequently used rooms will instantly brighten up the property.

Cleanliness

Pay attention to details: put away the kitty litter, place a vase of fresh flowers near the entryway, pop a batch of cinnamon rolls in the oven, have your carpets cleaned.

Staging

Your agent will scan the property before it is listed for sale to see how you can improve the staging of your property.

What our clients say

Personally, I love working with Tom and Matt Terella at Erie Shores Realty because they are very good people and exceptionally knowledgeable professionals. They have treated me like family coming into their employ and are always available for questions and to share a laugh as we work through our deals, whether simple or very complex. I believe this to all be part of the sense of integrity and strong work ethic which is part and parcel of the Erie Shores Realty philosophy every day and which is graciously extended to all its clients and customers.- Beth
Matt was our agent in purchasing our recent home. He went the “extra mile” for us, finding a property in the exact neighborhood we were interested in. He was always available, assisted in every way from getting us in to tour the home, to finding inspectors and contractors. He was prompt in returning calls and always available to help move the process along. It was a very easy and low stress experience thanks to Matt.- Sheppeck Family
Matt Terella is without a doubt the most delightful and trustworthy realtor I have ever worked with. He answers questions and concerns thoroughly while constantly looking for the right property for his clients. A home is easily one of the largest investments a person makes and Matt is the sort of realtor you want at your side when committing to a financial move like this. I can't say enough about him - he's one of the good guys.- Joy Dennis
