Top Tasks Before Selling A Home

Before We Meet

Call your mortgage lender to get the most up to date pay off figure.  This will help when compiling your net sheet; revealing your actual net profit.  Have a list of the upgrades that have been made to the home. Items such as room additions, new carpet or flooring, upgraded appliances or a new furnace system all are considered when determining the right sale price.  If you have home manuals available, gather them up. Paint colors and appliance warranties are valuable to potential buyers as well.

Declutter and De-Personalize

When buyers look at homes, they open cabinets, closets and kitchen drawers.  These areas need to be minimized as much as possible. Family photos are distracting and can make it difficult for buyers to imagine themselves in the home. Packing things into boxes and storing the boxes in the garage helps with the over-stuffed look.  Buyers don’t mind seeing packed boxes in the garage as it helps them know you are ready to move!

Schedules

Give some thought to your family schedules.  A home that is easy to show always sells faster.  You will need a plan for your pets as well.  Planning and scheduling are important so we keep your family life as normal as possible but maximize the opportunity to get buyers in to see the house and ultimately write an offer!
