Prepping Your Home for the Market

  • The best thing you can do before selling your Central Ohio home is take time to maximize it's exterior appeal. Buyers may drive by a home before deciding to see it, so curb appeal can make a big impact. Tips to enhance your home's exterior and curb appeal:

  • If you are willing to make repairs, I will recommend profitable, inexpensive improvements to enhance your home's appeal.

  • Preview properties in direct competition with yours, if necessary.

  • Establish a competitive price range for your home - based upon recent comparable sales in similar condition.

  • Establish a competitive price range for your home - based upon recent comparable sales in similar condition.



STEP 2: Extensive Internet Marketing

Over 90% of buyers search for homes online. According to a National Association of Realtors Survey, multiple listing photos and detailed listing description are the two most important items home buyers used to find their home. Selling your home in today's competitive Columbus Ohio real estate market requires effective online marketing. With thousands of homes for buyers to choose from, I'll make sure yours stands out!

  • Provide high quality digital photos of your home.

  • Ensure accurate data online because buyers choose to visit homes that meet their search criteria. I can't tell you how many mistakes I find on the internet . . . how many homes I've seen listed with no garage, when in fact the home had a 2 car garage! Mistakes like this can cause a home to be overlooked by buyers. Accurate data is important so the right buyer will find your home!

"We were referred to Petra by friends of ours who own a mortgage co. (That said a lot right off the bat!) We had done a lot of work on our home to get it ready to list, I called Petra to get her advice on something and she came over the same day! Our house was in contract within 25 days!!!! And we were offered and sold OVER the listing price! We had 10 days per our agreement with the buyer to find a home for our family...we sent Petra a list of MLS #'s from the VERY...helpful emails she sent us that we wanted to see, she added another home to our list and guess what...that's the one we bought!! We love our new home and we really did rely on Petra's experience, knowledge and honesty! We will definately refer our friends and family to Petra!!! You will feel that you have made a true friend!"
