Helpful Tips That Help Your Property Sell Faster

 Download the Checklist

Whether you are looking to sell your own home or hire a Realtor, selling your home doesn't just mean sticking a sign out front. There are a lot of preparations you should make to ensure you get the best offer possible in the shortest time.

Things to Consider When Preparing to Sell

  • What is the buyer's first impression of the exterior of your house?
  • Shall I re-seed the lawn and get my landscaping in top shape?
  • Does the house or any part of the house need painting?
  • What about the door mats? Do I need to replace them?
  • What about the screens? Any holes? What about the windows? Do they work well or do they need attention?
  • What is the buyer's first impression as they step inside the house?
  • Are my pets in control at all times?
  • Does the carpet need cleaning or replaced?
  • Are all appliances in good working order?
  • Can I take items out of the cabinets to make them look more spacious?
  • Is there any furniture that can be stored to make rooms look larger?
  • Since all buyers want to look in closets, can I take some of the clothes out to make them look roomier?
  • Are the garage and storage areas as clean and neat as they should be?
  • Should I stay out of a prospective buyer's way?
  • Are the price and terms offered going to appeal to most of the buying public in my price range?
  • Do I need to be aware of other houses similar to mine also being offered for sale?
