If you're in the process of preparing your home for the real estate market, get ready to roll up your sleeves and make your home as irresistible as possible!

While this may sound like an enormous undertaking that you don't have the time or energy to tackle, remember one thing: When you put your home up for sale, there's a lot at stake!

Generally, the longer your house stays on the market, the less marketable it becomes. If potential buyers learn that your house has been on the market for longer than, say, a few months, one of the first questions they'll ask or think will be "What's wrong with it?" Once questions like that start arising, the overall appeal of your home begins to decline. As you can imagine, your ability to get the highest possible price for your house also weakens over time. That's why it's important to do everything possible to enhance the look and feel of your home.

Home Staging Counts

Although effective home staging can be a crucial aspect of selling your house quickly, there is a point at which diminishing returns may come into play. Few home sellers have unlimited time and money to invest in staging their home, and it's easy to go above and beyond what's actually necessary to secure a buyer.

There are dozens of variables that affect a house selling strategy, including the real estate market and the condition of your home. If it's a "buyers' market" and there are a lot of comparable houses for sale in your neighborhood, then you might have to work a little harder to make your home stand out and attract offers. If you're fortunate enough to be in a desirable area and not facing a lot of competition from other home sellers, then the law of supply and demand should work in your favor! However, it's still important to make the most of your property's curb appeal and the overall appearance of your home's interior.

The cost of home staging can range from a few hundred dollars to thousands, but your real estate agent can provide invaluable guidance on how to cost-effectlively maximize the "eye appeal" of your house and property. While perfection is generally an unattainable standard in home staging (or anything else), optimal results only come from putting your best foot forward.

Several words to remember and be guided by when preparing a house for sale are "immaculate", "spotless", "manicured" (lawn), "fresh" (looking and smelling), "updated", "well-maintained", and "charming". If prospective buyers are using those words and phrases to describe your home, then you know you're on the right track! Your agent can provide you with helpful insights and suggestions for making a great impression on potential buyers -- without having to spend more on home staging than necessary!

If you live in one state, but are trying to buy a home in another state, youíll face some obvious challenges. Thereís certain steps that you can take to help you get through the home buying process in another state. Whether youíre buying a vacation home, or are in a complete transition, youíll need to follow a few steps to make life easier for you. 

Know How Much Time You Have

First, youíll need to ask yourself when youíre planning to move. If you have flexibility and are planning a trip to the new state before you need to move, that paints a much different picture than a more rushed move. Consider:

  • The time it will take to sell your current home
  • When the closing will be on the new home

Keep that timeline in mind.

Youíll definitely want to hire a realtor to handle everything for you on both ends when youíre in this situation. A Realtorís knowledge and experience is definitely worth it to help you.

Get Your Finances In Order

Youíll need to apply for a loan on the home youíre buying in the new state. You should start by getting pre-approved for a mortgage in that state. You donít want all of your important paperwork to be buried in the midst of packing and moving. Also, youíll need to have that loan secured before you even head to the new state to close on the home. Everything should be in order. This situation may be more challenging for you than a typical home purchase. Since big purchases affect your credit score, youíll need to hold off on buying a car, furniture, or any major appliances that you may need. 

Get As Much Information As You Can

As a buyer who is from out of state, youíll need to do your homework. Maybe you have visited the state many times before. Perhaps you know nothing about it. The more you know ahead of time, the easier that your transition will be. Youíll need to find recommendations about which neighborhood to search in. Youíll also want to learn a bit more about the lifestyle the area provides for activities like dining, entertainment, and recreation. You can learn a lot in the internet, but talking to locals- even a local realtor- can help you to find the right spot to live in. 

Find The Right Realtors

Youíll need to find the right realtors in both your home state and the state that youíre moving to. The sellerís agent will assist you in getting your old home sold. From marketing the listing to home showings to sending you all of the paperwork that youíll need to sign, a sellerís agent is very valuable to someone who needs to move out of one state and into another. 

The buyerís agent can help you in your new state, communicating with you on new listings and advising you on the neighborhoods that youíll be the most happy in. Hiring these two realtors may be one of the most important steps in your feat of moving across two different states.

With the resources that are available online, moving from state-to-state isn't as hard as it may seem. Do your research for a smooth transition. Happy moving!
