THE FIVE STEPS TO DO BEFORE PUTTING YOUR HOUSE ON THE MARKET.
1. Have a pre-sale home inspection. Be proactive by arranging for a pre-sale
home inspection. An inspector will be able to give you a good indication of the
trouble areas that will stand out to potential buyers, and you'll be able to make
repairs before open houses.
2. Organize and clean. Pare down the clutter and pack up your least-used items,
such as large blenders and other kitchen tools, out-of-season clothes, toys and
exercise equipment. Store items off-site or in boxes neatly arranged in the garage
or basement. Clean the windows (make them sparkle),, carpets, walls, lighting
fixtures,and baseboards to make the house shine.
3. Get replacement estimates. Do you have big-ticket items that are worn out or
will need to be replaced soon, such as your roof or carpeting? Get estimates on
how much it would cost to replace them even if you don't plan to do it yourself.
The figures will help buyers determine if they can afford the home, and will be
handy when negotiations begin.
4. Find you warranties. Gather up the warranties, guarantees, and other manuals
for the furnace, washer and dryer, dishwasher and any other items that will remain
in with the house.
5. Spruce up the curb appeal. Pretend you're the buyer and stand outside of your
home. As you approach the front door, what is your impression of the property?
Does the lawn and bushes look neatly manicured? Is the address clearly visible?
Are pretty flowers or plants framing the entrance? Is the walkway free of cracks
1. Price it right. Set a price within the lower end of your property's realistic price
2. Prepare for visitors. Get your house ready at least two weeks before you
begin showing it.
3. Be flexible about showings. It's often disruptive to have a house ready to show
at the spur of the moment. The more amenable you can be about showing your
home, the sooner you'll find a buyer.
4. Anticipate offers. Decide in advance what price and terms you'll find
5. Don't refuse to drop the price. If your home has been on the market for more
than 30 days without an officer, you should be prepared to al least consider
lowering the asking price.
