We have begun a new year, and you may be ready to sell your home this year. There is a lot that needs to be done when selling a home from repairs to cleaning. Now before talking to an agent to list, do these things on your own to be ready for selling.
- Research your home online. Most buyers start searching online, therefore you want to see what is already on the internet about your home before it is listed. Google your home and see what comes up, what the pictures of it may look like, and see if there are estimated values already out there. Researching this you can see what can be fixed, and can possibly contest the estimated values. Also, look at your neighborhood and what is selling in it.
- List all the improvements and repairs you made. Walk through your home and write down everything you may have changed, no matter how small. Somethings will include a new hot water heater, rebuilt deck, new hardware, or roof replacement. Also list the problems you have addressed and being them up to a professional to see what you may have to disclose.
- Note the obvious flaws. Go through you home and see any things that may need to be fixed. Such as a small dent in the wall from moving furniture or struggling landscaping. These are fixable problems that could affect the sale of your home, and the list gives you an idea of what needs to be done to get the home market-ready.
