Sellers

Prepare for listing by doing a pre-walk through with your Realtor.

 

It is very important to put your best foot forward and look at it from the perspective of both the future buyer and the buyers inspector. Take notes on all items that need to be repaired or replaced. Improvements made prior to listing can result in a higher list price. Things to consider include:

Exterior:

 

  • Does it need a new coat of paint (either because the old paint is obviously cracked or faded, or because of an uncommon choice in color that might turn off prospective buyers)?
  • If a house with a yard, is the lawn and landscaping attractive and well-kept?
  • If it is a condo, you can’t do much about the building, but is the front door (and balcony, if there is one) appealing?
  • Are the windows and doors attractive and in good condition?
  • Is the roof (and the gutters) in good condition?

Interior:

 

  • Are the interior paints and finishes in good condition (recently updated), or do they need to be freshened up? This is one area with the best ratio of least expensive to most desired. For a minimal investment, you could possibly make or break a sale by having your home look well-kept and inviting.
  • Are the appliances in good working order and of recent vintage?
  • Are the plumbing and electrical systems in good condition? Are they fully functional?
  • Are the floor coverings clean and in good condition?
  • Are the sealants (sink, shower, tub, windows) in good condition?
