Home Selling Checklist

Posted by Kirby Cox on Thursday, October 3rd, 2013 at 3:32pm.

You've made the decision to sell, now what? Here's a simple checklist to ensure you're ready for what's next.

Price it Right

Your best chance to sell your property is within the first seven weeks. The longer the property stays on the market, the less the seller will net. Over-pricing can reduce the number of offers that you're likely to get.

Clean and Organize

Eliminate clutter, keep your home clean, and get rid of any looming odours. Even the slightest hint of a bad smell can turn off a potential homebuyer. It's also a good idea to rid your home of any sign of pets.

Make the Home Accessible

Be sure to make your home easily accessible for showings. Keep all interior doors unlocked, and don't be around during showings. If something is kept off-limits, people will wonder why.

Paint & Flooring

Paint is the best investment you can make, for getting the greatest return on your money. Paint wherever you see chips, exposed wood or fading. It's a good idea to get damaged flooring repaired, and get carpets professionally cleaned.

Curb Appeal

Your front yard is the first thing a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property, so make a good first impression. Ensure your yard is clutter-free, landscaped and appealing from a distance.
