To-Do List Before You Sell

Before you list your property there are several things to-do before. Taking the time to do these things will help you be better prepared when your home goes on the market. If you have any Bright Clean Kitchenquestions please contact us.

  1. Gather Documents: Put together warranties and manuals on any appliances and other items that will remain with the house. Collect documentation of any repairs or improvements made to the property as well.
  2. Pre-sale Home Inspection: Get a pre-sale home inspection so you’ll be able to make repairs before buyers become concerned and cancel a contract. If you don’t want to make repairs work with your Realtor on how to adjust the sale price.
  3. Get Estimates: Get estimates from a reliable repair person on items that need to be replaced soon, a roof or worn carpeting, for example. In this way, buyers will have a better sense of how much these needed repairs will affect their costs.
  4. Declutter: Simplifying your home will let buyers envision themselves and their belongings in the home. Clear off countertops, purge bookshelves and organize closets -- yes, people will be looking in your closets.
  5. Fill Out Disclosure: Fill out a disclosure form provided by your sales associate. Take the time to be sure that you don’t forget problems, however minor, that might create liability for you after the sale.
