Selling your home can be a complex process, but with the right preparation, you can maximize your property's appeal and potential value. As we step into 2024, the real estate market continues to evolve, and staying ahead of the curve is essential. If you're planning to sell your home in West Michigan this year, here are the top 10 tips to get your property ready for a successful sale.

1) Start With a Pre-Sale Inspection:
Before listing your home, consider hiring a professional inspector to identify any potential issues. This proactive approach allows you to address concerns before potential buyers discover them, instilling confidence in your property's condition.

2) Enhance Curb Appeal:
First impressions matter, and the exterior of your home is the first thing potential buyers will see. Invest time and effort into landscaping, cleaning up the yard, and applying a fresh coat of paint to boost curb appeal. A well-maintained exterior sets a positive tone for the entire property.

3) Declutter and Depersonalize:
Clear out personal belongings and unnecessary clutter to make your home appear more spacious. Buyers want to envision themselves in the space, and depersonalizing allows them to see the potential without distraction. Consider renting a storage unit for items that are not essential during the selling process.

4) Repairs and Upgrades:
Address any noticeable repairs, such as leaky faucets or chipped paint. Additionally, consider making cost-effective upgrades that can add value to your home, such as replacing outdated fixtures, upgrading kitchen appliances, or adding a fresh coat of neutral paint to high-traffic areas.

5) Stage Your Home:
Professional staging can significantly impact a buyer's perception of your home. Whether you hire a professional stager or follow DIY staging tips, creating an inviting and neutral environment can help potential buyers visualize the full potential of the space.

6) Set the Right Price:
Research the current real estate market in West Michigan and work with a knowledgeable real estate agent to determine a competitive and realistic asking price. Pricing your home appropriately from the start is crucial for attracting serious buyers and securing a timely sale.

7) Invest in High-Quality Listing Photos:
In the digital age, high-quality photos are essential for online listings. Work with a professional photographer to showcase your home in the best light. Clear, well-lit photos will capture the attention of potential buyers browsing online listings.

8) Utilize Digital Marketing:
Leverage the power of online marketing to reach a wider audience. Ensure your property is listed on popular real estate websites and use social media platforms to showcase your home. Engage with potential buyers through virtual tours and online open houses to provide a comprehensive view of your property.

9) Be Flexible With Showings:
Make your home as accessible as possible for potential buyers. Be flexible with showings, including evenings and weekends, to accommodate varying schedules. The more accessible your home is, the higher the chances of attracting serious buyers.

10) Work With a Local Real Estate Professional:
Enlist the expertise of a local real estate agent who understands the West Michigan market. Jeff Kremers is an agent that can provide valuable insights, guide you through the selling process, and help you navigate negotiations. His knowledge and network can be instrumental in achieving a successful sale.


Preparing your home for sale in 2024 requires a combination of strategic planning, attention to detail, and utilizing modern marketing techniques. By following these top 10 tips, you can position your property to stand out in the competitive West Michigan real estate market and increase the likelihood of a successful and lucrative sale.

What my clients are saying  

We highly recommend Jeff if you are looking to buy your next perfect house! He went above and beyond to show us houses all around Grand Rapids and gave us his honest opinion on prices, the state of the house, and much more. He is a good listener, very responsive, knowledgeable, and always had our preferences in mind when suggesting new showings. The best part: We had to leave MI for a month but we wanted to continue our house search and Jeff helped us by actually going to see houses himself and do live video tours with us so we wouldn't miss out on a good find. I am so glad we found and chose Jeff to guide us in the house-buying process. We are grateful for all your help and advice! Thanks!


~ Corina Hacker

Jeff came highly recommended and we now know why. He truly exceeded all expectations. He was with us every step of the way and was always available any time we needed him. He worked hard for us and was a great partner to have on the journey to find our forever home. His acumen and low-pressure, consultative approach gave us much-appreciated confidence through the stressful parts of the home-buying process. Jeff is a master of his craft and more importantly, a great person that makes home buying fun. We recommend him to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home.


~ Britt & Vic

Jeff made the process of buying and selling very easy. He explained everything clearly and was in frequent communication throughout the process. Highly recommended!


~ Kirk Fabbri

Attentive, reliable, and extremely knowledgeable. Jeff gave us honest answers and advice when searching for the best house. He didn’t sugarcoat it which was perfect for us as a young couple buying our first house together. Thank you, Jeff! Update: Jeff just helped us buy and sell our home for the 2nd time! By far, the easiest process. There is a reason we come back to Jeff every time we go to buy. Thanks, Jeff for all you do!


~ Chelsea Roche

A great friend and a great Realtor!!!


~ Jerry Maring

Jeff Helped us through a very complicated purchase. His commitment and expertise was very helpful and appreciated.


~ Steve Foster

This was the 2nd home that Jeff has helped me find. Fighting for houses in a tough buyers’ market started to become very stressful, and throughout the entire process, Jeff made sure that I didn’t become discouraged and kept reassuring me that the right house would come along. He followed through with his promise by helping me find a house that was everything I was looking for and then some. On top of finding the perfect house, we were able to get an offer accepted under the asking price! Another great experience with West Michigan Realty Pros.


~ Cory Berg

Jeff was amazing to work with! This was our second time seeking his services and we couldn’t be happier with the results. As usual, Jeff was responsive and very helpful with anything we needed. I would highly recommend Jeff Kremers and West Michigan Realty Pros.


~ Mike Smith

Jeff helped us with our move back into Michigan and had the depth of knowledge we needed to find the right house. Besides being a super fun guy to tour houses with, he helped us navigate a difficult market and find a house that checked our boxes. He’s also an expert in pools and grilling! Thanks, Jeff!!


~ Greg Bliek

My wife and I moved from out of state and were lucky to find someone like Jeff to guide us through our home search. Not knowing the area very well, we relied heavily on Jeff’s knowledge of Western Michigan as well as his knowledge of the intricacies of the home-buying process in Michigan. Another bonus with Jeff is his experience in the construction industry. It’s nice to find a realtor who is professional, but finding one who can also advise you on the mechanical aspects of homes is pretty rare. Jeff was also very responsive and always on time. In a tough housing market, we were able to find a house that checked all of our boxes thanks to Jeff’s dedication to our search.


~ Chris Sheehan

Jeff did a wonderful job for us. He really knows the market and will definitely sell your home quickly and get maximum value.


~ Steve Buchanan

I have used Jeff to buy and sell 2 houses for me in the last year and in every case he was knowledgeable about the market and his communication was outstanding. The other realtors Jeff was working with were also complimentary about his work and professionalism.


~ Pat Tolsma

Jeff helped us purchase a home from out of state, and we were thankful to have his expertise on our side. Jeff is a great negotiator and helped us get the best price for our home. He was readily available to answer all of our questions--big and small. Many of our family and friends had already worked with Jeff and we are so glad we took their recommendations seriously. If you're looking for someone transparent, direct, and efficient, he's your guy.


~ Melissa Kutsche

Jeff went above & beyond to sell my condo and made sure I got the very best offer! I will never buy or sell a house without him! Going through houses with him was great, as well! He pointed out structural things that I would have never noticed. He didn't mind showing us quite a few houses until we found 'the one!'


~ Jessica Elenbaas

We've sold two houses and bought one house at different times and market climates with Jeff Kremers. He was so helpful with both buying and selling. With selling, he gave great advice on what to focus on to prep for sale. With buying, we ended up in a home we love and felt confident buying. He has great communication skills, works hard to ensure the best and fairest deal is reached, and he knows West Michigan inside and out! It’s obvious too that he loves this job and cares about people!


~ Jake Melling

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness Jeff is a great Realtor and a tenacious salesperson. He has sold two homes for us and helped us purchase our current home. We were always confident he was in our corner working to get us the highest possible price for our property and I would definitely work with him again next time around (including commercial properties)!


~ Jeff Veldhuis

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness In the summer of 2018, we sold our home in Byron Center (Providence Lake subdivision) - Jeff came recommended to us by friends in the Grandville area. He was great to work with - Jeff did an awesome job on the photos for the home, he had exceptional responsiveness, and he helped us sell our home for a price that we were happy with! I'd recommend Jeff to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in his territory!


~ Chad Zagar

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness Jeff Kremers has been the consummate realtor for our family. He’s helped us buy and sell over 5 homes. He’s a great listener, always there to answer questions and just an all-around great person. We trust him, you should too!


~ Patty DeCorte

Jeff is an excellent realtor with a wealth of experience doing things the right way. We’ve used him for selling our home and purchasing two different ones. He’s thorough and explains all the details of a transaction well. He also is a straight shooter. His experiences from owning an HVAC company are incredibly valuable when touring homes and making sure they have “good bones.” Jeff also communicates well. We have always had peace of mind knowing he’s advocating on our behalf. You won’t be disappointed!


~ Chris Bowen

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Jeff was amazing to work with! He helped us buy our first home two years ago. The market had just started to get crazy and we were getting outbid often. We were starting to get discouraged but with Jeff’s advice and skill, we were able to buy a fixer upper at a great price! We love our home and loved working with Jeff. I’d recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor!


~ Emily Grove

Jeff is a tenacious advocate for his clients. Not only did we get a good deal when buying, but he followed up on a bunch of issues that could have been very hard for us. He’s very good at what he does!


~ Bob Werkema

Jeff was great to work with, very professional, and had our best interests out front. Would highly recommend Jeff and would be happy to use him again in the future!


~ Bryan DeCorte

We have used Jeff as our realtor over the years with our home and our mother's home. Jeff not only goes above and beyond but he is very trustworthy. He will always be our first choice in realtors!


~ Mark DeWitt

Jeff has been my realtor since 2013 and helped me both buy and sell homes. He’s been a wonderful guide through each transaction. His trustworthy and honest advice has been invaluable!


~ Julee Geib

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Jeff is simply the best realtor I’ve ever dealt with …. Really knows his trade inside and out …. Goes above and beyond for his clients… he really cares !!!



My wife and I have used the realty services of Jeff Kremers for purchasing two properties. I trusted his guidance as began our search and then was impressed with his advice every step of the way. He went out of his way to make the process as easy as possible for us. We did encounter some issues at closing that were beyond his control (errors made by the title company). It caused him significantly more time, but he proceeded professionally in dealing with appropriate parties and in communication. We are pleased with our purchases and the entire process.


~ Ron Bistline

With so many real estate agents in the area, it is hard to know whom to choose. I wanted someone with years of experience, who wasn’t trying to just capitalize on the recent boom in the market. I wanted someone I could trust who did what he promised he would do. I wanted someone who was looking out for me as I made one of the biggest transactions of my life. Jeff checks all those boxes and more. This is just one of the many times I have recommended Jeff, the others have been to friends and family! If you are looking for an excellent, experienced agent, who has integrity, and will communicate effectively to you and on your behalf get ahold of Jeff Kremers at West Michigan Realty Pros!


~ Ben Polavin

Jeff is fabulous! He is kind, genuine, trustworthy, and absolutely the guy you want to be working with when making huge house-buying and selling decisions. My husband and I recommend him to everyone we know.


~ Abigail Bishop

Jeff helped us both buy and sell our home recently. We are new to the area and were referred by family friends. His service was some of the best we've ever experienced in real estate. Very flexible with our schedules and extremely responsive communication! Plus, we were highly satisfied with the price we received.
