It's hard to believe, but selling your home by summer 2013 can mean starting at the beginning of the new year. Starting preparations in January helps create an easy and smooth selling experience so you can focus on the next step. On average, it takes about a month to get your home ready to go on the market. Usually there's two weeks for minor repairs, and another two weeks for our marketing team to capture the story of your home and create all of the amazing materials. That means your home would be ready for total exposure on the market in February. Based on the average days on market for homes in Portland, your home could receive an offer around April. The transaction would close by May, and you would be ready to move on to the next step by June. Starting in January allows you to take the time you need to sell and prepare for what comes after. Let's strategize on how to sell your home in 2013.
