Some folks believe when the real estate market is hot, like it is now in the Denver Foothills, you don't need to prepare your home for showings. They believe the buyer is stuck and needs to purchase their home no matter what condition it is in. Well many Realtors would agree with that but the good Realtors will always advise their clients to make their home the best they can no matter what the local market conditions might be. A seller doesn't need to put a lot of money into their home but the home should be clean, organized and things should be functioning. This will assure you receive maximum value and a speedy under contract and closing time.
