Sellers

Sellers Checklist

Start planning early

  • Start weeding out your current possessions. Throw out, give away, or sell the things that you don’t want to move at a yard sale.

Start packing early

  • Anything that you are sure you will not be using before moving day should get boxed.

Identify your home’s flaws or problems

  • Sellers are obligated to disclose any major problems or flaws in the structure or property, including things like dry rot, termites, asbestos, or a new highway slated to run nearby. The disclosure requirements vary by state, but if you fail to mention the leaky roof or flooding basement, you could be sued for fraud. 

Stage your home

  • Small cosmetic touches can increase your home’s value by thousands. 
  • Remove family photos, to allow the buyer to imagine themselves in your home.

Decide what goes and what stays

  • Before you start showing your home, you need to decide what will be included in the sale. If you want to take your washer and dryer with you, tell serious buyers before negotiations start.

Suggested Exterior Improvements

  • Painting: Touch up your house’s exterior paint before you put it on the market. Paint and/or clean the front door.
  • Yard: Remove weeds and be sure all landscaping is neatly trimmed. Clear debris from the lawn and the border of your home.
  • Sidewalks: Sweep your sidewalks daily.
  • Shrubbery: Remove or replace any dead or dying trees, hedges, or shrubs; prune anything that looks unsightly or overgrown.
  • Flowers: Filling flowerbeds with seasonal flowers or succulents is an inexpensive way to add color and charm to your property. Consider placing a flowerpot by your front door.
  • Repairs: Be sure that all gutters and downspouts are in place and clean. Replace missing roof shingles and broken or cracked windows.
