Pre-listing checklist

There’s a lot that needs to be done when you sell your home, from repairs to cleaning to staging. Here are three things you should do on your own and set yourself up for a successful sale.



Research your home online   List every repair and improvement you made   Note the obvious flaws

Most buyers start their home search online, so know that information about your home is already out there before you officially list. Google your home and see what comes up, what it looks like and if it has an estimated value. Now is the time to fix any errors. You can contest estimated values you see on your home on sites like Zillow. 


Walk through your house and write down every-thing you can think of. Did you buy a new fridge? Install a new hot water heater? Rebuild your deck? Replace the roof? You also want to list any problems you have addressed, and then talk to a professional about what and how to disclose.


Maybe there’s a ding in the wall from moving a piece of furniture. Or perhaps your landscaping needs a major refresh. Note the obvious, fixable problems that could affect the sale of your home in order to have an idea of what you’ll need to do to get it market-ready. Buying or selling a home can seem like an overwhelming task.
