Maybe you’re thinking of entering the Salt Lake City property market. You want to downsize or maybe you need some more space or you changed jobs. But you’re hesitating because of how long it took your friend or neighbor or cousin to sell their house and it caused all sorts of stress. You know what? It doesn’t have to be that way. Yes, you have to roll up your sleeves and get to work. But when you have a plan, it can actually be pretty quick.
Start with curb appeal. Get your yard in great shape. Mow, trim, weed, plant some colorful flowers. Repaint or replace the front door. Get good lighting for the porch. And make sure you can see the house number as soon as you drive up. People form their first impression really quickly. Make sure your Salt Lake City real estate puts its best foot forward.

Inside, the goal is to make the house seem as bright and spacious as possible. Start with decluttering. Donate what you don’t want to take with you. Box up everything you can possibly do without for a month or so. If you can move out completely and have the place professionally staged, do it. You won’t have to worry about keeping everything spotless while you have showings. If you’re on a budget, check out design blogs to get inspiration for arranging your space to its best advantage.
Many people wonder about doing improvements to their Salt Lake City property. If you can, repainting and reflooring are two projects that I recommend. They don’t have to cost a ton, and they really liven up a space.
One of the toughest yet most important factors is pricing the house correctly for the market. I compare your house to others like it that have sold recently in the neighborhood. Overpriced houses sit on the market for weeks and months on end. A house at the right price will sell faster.
Finally, you need a real estate agent who can help you market your house online. Here at Discount Agents, my focus is exclusively on online marketing. This gives you the most exposure for your house for the least amount of money. I do professional photography so your house looks great in online listings, and I list the house so it’s easy to find.
