Prelisting Checklist To Prepare Your Home For Sale

Thinking about selling in the near future?  Want to net the most?  Follow our Pre-Listing checklist and set yourself up for a successful sale.

First – Research your home online – Google your home and see what comes up, what it looks like and if it has an estimated value.  Now is the time to fix any errors.  You can contest estimated values you see on your home on sites like Zillow.

Second – List every repair & improvement you made, no matter how small. – Walk through your house and write down everything you can think of.  Did you buy a new fridge? Install a new hot water heater? Replace your roof? You also want to list any problems you have addressed, and then talk to an expert realtor about what and how to disclose. 

Third – Note the obvious flaws – Maybe there’s a ding in the wall from moving a piece of furniture.  Or perhaps your landscaping needs a major refresh.  Note the obvious, fixable problems that could affect the sale of your home in order to have an idea of what you’ll need to do to get it market ready.  This information will also be helpful when speaking to an expert realtor who can advise you on what repairs are worth investing in.  The Swain Team does not want to see our clients spend unnecessary money with no return on investment.
