Sell Your Home Checklist

Ready to part with your home? That’s okay. But lets make sure you’re home selling ready! To get the best return on your home, you need to make your home look its ultimate best. Here’s the checklist that will help you do it!

  • Make small fixes.
    • Inspect your home from a buyer’s eyes, and correct the flaws that are most noticeable (if affordable) or can be fixed relatively easily. From repainting dingy walls, or fixing creaky hinges can make the difference.
  • Stay vigilant about maintenance.
    • From the moment you start showing your house, keep the lawn mowed, rooms spotless and clutter-free.
  • Ready your home for show days.
    • Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh flowers or fruit bowls, bake a batch of cookies for the homey smell, open the drapes and keep signs of pets out of site. Small details can make your home that much more attractive to the home buyer.
  • Know what you can and what you cannot change about your house.
    • This allows you to concentrate on those items that bring the highest rewards and ignore those that cannot be modified.
  • Start organizing your home.
    • Have a yard sale before you list. Sell, donate, or trash everything that you don’t need.
