Preparing Your Home for Sale

& Compass Concierge

Before & After Transformation

As the market has shifted and prospective buyers have become even more selective about the homes they will consider, it's critical that your home is presented in its best form. Our team has developed systems for identifying and executing cost-effective pre-sale improvements that can enhance the marketability of your home and increase the prospective buyer pool. ​​​​​​​
