Thinking of selling your Glendale Ca home in 2018? Many homeowners take four to six months to finally get their home on the market. If 2018 is your year to cash out, then it is a good idea to start planning and preparing now. Here are the most important steps to take right now.
Where do you want to go?
Your Glendale Ca home has been great, but maybe you’d like to experience somewhere new. If you have a short list, start visiting these places now, especially if you’ve only visited during vacation season. While you are there, meet with a Realtor or two and find out about the home buying process in that area. The smart buyer knows that the internet only goes so far- for true knowledge you need to talk to an expert. If you need a referral let us know.

Start to Declutter
Whether you actually put your home on the market in 2018 or not, decluttering your home is an awesome gift to yourself and your family. It is a daunting task to even start, and I wrote about my personal journey to decluttering in this post. If you need a little help, ask for the ClutterBuster Guide at the end of that article.

However, there are a number of more involved items that will increase your overall sales price. If you wait until the last minute the entire list might be overwhelming, but over a period of time everything is easily accomplished.
