Michael Ackerman, a Seattle Realtor with Coldwell Banker Bain, blogs about preparing your home for market well in advance of the actual listing date. The current market is dictating that homes need to be well priced, AND that they show beautifully as well. The probable list of items to complete on your home to make it “market fresh” may be longer than in the past. Work with your agent to prepare your “to do” list, and start on it early in the process!
