Wishing is always easier than Working…

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” I don’t think there is a person alive who was not been asked that question. And some achieve that desire expressed so early.

Not by wishing but rather working.

Selling a house is no different. It is done not by wishing.

When you have decided to sell your Viera or Suntree or Melbourne, Florida home you will interview and hire your real estate agent – a very professional real estate agent like, for example, Gary Waters, Century 21 Baytree Realty.

Now what?

Certainly wishing will not get it done. Work is required – by you and your real estate agent.

Selling involves getting ready to sell and folow though such as:

  • clean,
  • de-clutter,
  • depersonalize,
  • maximize curb appeal,
  • paint, if necessary
  • a preemptive home inspection in an older home,
  • fix those little annoying things you have let “slide”,
  • establishing right price,
  • make available for showing,
  • provide for safety and security of valuables (never know who is coming in your house,
  • preparing marketing material,
  • Internet exposure,
  • writing articles for publication on the Internet,
  • taking photos,
  • put the sign up,
  • advertise,
  • and the list goes on.

In the end your house will sell because of wishing wellwork not wishing on a star or in a wishing well. Work that you and your real estate agent have accomplished.
