Selling Your Home in 2021? Start Prepping Now
We won't get into how 2020 changed everyone's life in some way or another, but it certainly did, and we can say with confidence we're glad to see this year coming to an end!
With every new year comes new change, and hopefully for the better. Whether that's deciding to take a new job or buy a new house, we are excited about what 2021 is going to bring you.
If your 2021 goal is to buy a new house, you aren't alone. Maybe your family is growing, maybe you're working from home for longer than you expected and need an extra home office, or maybe you want to take advantage of those historically low-interest rates! Whatever the reason, it's never too early to start planning.

1. Start finding the right realtor
When you're about to trust someone to sell your biggest asset, you've got to make sure they're the right fit! There are tons of fantastic realtors in the DFW area that are trustworthy and will help give you access to thousands of potential buyers through the MLS as well as help you through the negotiation process. Don't be afraid to interview a few before you commit to one.
2. Begin de-cluttering
There isn't a better time than the holidays than to start de-cluttering your home. Start with the closets, work through the drawers, and then tackle the attic. Not only will this make your home appear larger and more buyer-friendly, but it will make your move easier in the long run!
3. Hire a home stager
Getting your home staged is a proven way to sell your home quickly. Our team at Staging Dallas has almost a decade of experience prepping homes to sell. In fact, homes staged by Staging Dallas in 2019 were only on the market for an average of 12 days, compared to the Dallas average of 58 days on the market. Hiring the home stager early will allow more time for consultations and planning.
