Infographic: Timeline for selling your home

July 19, 2018 10:00 am by Upside

When thinking about selling a home, most people run into the same question at one point or another: “How long does it take to sell a property?”

The answer is that it depends on a number of factors. Firstly, if you need lots of major repairs or maintenance done, it may be worth waiting to get those things done first to improve the value of your home. Our agents can give you a free property appraisal and offer tips on improvements that will give you the best chance of securing a great price.

Once you’ve got the big repairs out of the way, you’ll want to make sure your home is looking its absolute best before it goes to market. Depending on the age and condition of your home, this could mean all-new paint and carpet, a touch-up here and there, or you might not have to do much at all.

In other words, there’s no one-size-fits-all timeline for selling a house. At Upside, we can have your property advertised and ready to show in as little as two weeks of signing with us – but we’re here to work with you at a pace that suits you.

To help you get your head wrapped around the process of selling a house, we’ve put together a general timeline with things to think about from six months in advance to listing day and beyond.
