Sellers: Jump-start the process.

Is your home ready to be put on the market?   if you want to sell your house this year, start planning now. Start getting your home ready now,  selling your home for a fair price is difficult these days, so when you get a potential buyer, don’t let a bad inspection give the buyer a reason to reduce your selling price, get  your home inspected; there may be unseen major repairs to address.  

Declutter, clean closets and shelves, store extraneous possessions and furnishings and other stuff that might keep sellers from picturing themselves in your space.
