Do's and Don'ts of Prepping Your Home for Sale

John gets plenty of calls each week from current and past clients inquiring about specific renovations they are considering making to their home. In January, he detailed the Top 5 things home owners need to know about preparing their home to sell. Every seller wants their home to sell fast and bring top dollar. Along with routine maintenance, it takes careful planning and knowledge about how to professionally spruce up your home that bring potential buyers in droves. Check out John’s blog on the Top 5 Things Home Owners Need To Know About Boosting Home Value. 

Murfreesboro is a hot seller’s market!  What does this mean? Well, in a seller’s market that means that there is more demand than there is supply and there is nothing more frustrating than wanting to buy a home but finding out that it has already sold. Buying a home in a seller’s market requires a great deal of planning and there’s no way to guarantee success in a seller’s market, but these tips should help you get ahead of the competition.
Get Pre-approved for a mortgage—the buyers who get the house in a competitive market are the one who come prepared, having a pre-approval letter is mean you know what you can afford to get. 
Don’t wait- Good homes move fast! If you see a home hit the market that you like don’t wait to see it, call your agent right away to schedule an appointment to see it! 
If you write a good offer, a fast offer and a clean offer, your chances of acceptance are far better than those of a buyer who is unprepared.  
If you have any questions regarding your real estate needs please do not hesitate to call the Jones Team at 615-867-In honor of Memorial Day, The Jones Team would like to personally thank all of the brave individuals who have served our country and allowed us to live freely. We are all extremely lucky to live in such a wonderful country and are forever thankful for the heroes who protect us all.
Here are a few interesting facts about the day of remembrance:
1. Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day: Women and their children used to "decorate" the graves of fallen soldiers with wreaths and flowers.
2. It was originally celebrated on May 30th. Congress changed the date to the last Monday in May in order to have a three-day weekend.
3. The national time of remembrance is 3:00pm. Congress asks that during this time, everyone pause in silence for one minute.
4. May 1st, 1865 was the first large observance of the holiday. Missionaries, teachers and almost 10,000 freed slaves joined together in Charleston, SC to honor those who had died.
5. Memorial Day also marks as the beginning of summer. For many Americans, the day is celebrated with picnics, BBQs and weekend trips.
