Before putting your home on the market, it's important to think about how it's going to show to potential buyers. You have to realize that most buyers don't have the imagination required to look past all the stuff on your nightstand, vanity, closets, and kitchen counter. Pack up the things you aren't going to use but want to take with you to your new home, put items you need to use somewhere out of sight, and decide what you want to sell, donate, or throw out.
Once your home is totally decluttered, it's time to get spic end span. Scrub everything and make it shine. Once everything sparkles like it's a new model home, buyers will be able to walk in and picture making a life for themselves in your home. Most importantly, you can count on getting top dollar for your home!

Worried that the high prices of today's homes mean little room for growth? Well, here's the good news. Staten Island real estate has continued to see impressive appreciation!
I'm fact, the median sold price in Richmond County grew by $105,000 between September 2016 and August 2019.
That's over 22% growth in just 3 years!
Considering the national median over the same period was just over 4%, that's a pretty impressive number.
And despite normal ebbs and flows, the Staten Island market continues to look promising!
So, if you're thinking about buying a home but are hesitant to pull the trigger, don't worry. Purchasing a home is still one of the best investments anyone can make!
