For most of us, listing a house for sale is incredibly stressful. There’s much that could go wrong and if your property is a Napa, CA real estate, there’s even more pressure.

With that in mind, here’s six tips will help keep you sane during the listing and sale of one of your biggest assets.

  • Prepare super early: Are you thinking of selling several months from now? Well start preparing your property now. Stage it, fix any little things at your piece of your home that you can and get the property looking top notch. If you do these at the last second, you’ll only cause yourself undue heartache. Your realtor in Napa will have ideas on how you can get started.
  • Don’t set the price too high. Don’t hit the price ceiling to begin with. If you go too much above market value, you could have far fewer buyers coming to look at your home.

A talented realtor should be able to provide you good information on what your house is worth.
  • Make your viewing schedule flexible. If it’s too hard for people to come see your property they will likely lose interest and/or look for another house. Be flexible when a prospective purchaser wants to come by your Napa, CA real estate and look to see if it interests him or her.
  • Get away during the viewing. When purchasers want to schedule a showing, the last thing you want is to be there stressing out-or worse-overselling the house.

Try taking your kids to the park, going on a bike ride, taking a day trip, going to a local museum, etc. The areas around your Napa, CA real estate have a ton of different activities for you and your family.
  • Make necessary repairs. Look around the house and see the little things that need fixing and listen to the advice your realtor will give you.
