Are you thinking of selling your Oshawa home? One of the many things you need to consider as part of the home selling process is the security of your personal identity and belongings while your home is open for viewings by prospective Buyers. Dianna Mandzuk and her Team will walk you through the process and offer suggestions when they list your proprety, but here is a handy article to help you get a head start on the process.
Numerous people are going to be coming through your home while it's on the market. If you are living in the home while it is for sale, your personal belongings will be on show too and potential Buyers may also look through drawers and other items that are in your home. Your privacy and security may become an issue when showing your home, so it is important to consider all of your options before opening up your home for showings.
Without question, it is important to protect your privacy, and at the same time, prevent people from making assumptions about you or your property based on things they see in the home rather than just assessing the home itself.
Protect Your Documents
Keep in mind that a potential Buyer may open cabinets or drawers - this is not considered snooping. Buyers can innocently tug on a drawer to inspect it's construction or depth & find important documents that you might not intend for anyone to see.
Don't Leave Mail Out
Many Seller make the mistake of leaving piles of unopened mail neatly stacked on the kitchen counter or in a home office. By leaving your mail out in plain sight, a potential buyer can find out about your credit card debt, whether you have filed for bankruptcy and other private information that you don't want other people to be aware of.
Remove Personal Effects from Your Walls
From diplomas to wedding certificates & personal photos, don't provide buyers with any personal information about you or your family. De-personalizing the home is also an important move to make when staging your home for sale anyway, so you can actually accomplish two things by removing personal effects from your home.
Put Away Your Jewelery & Irreplacable Trinkets
Jewelery is small & easy to slip into a pocket unnoticed. Ensure your valuables are safely locked away when there are showings or open houses scheduled for your house.
Don't Leave Your Computer Running During Showings or Open Houses
Gaining personal information from your computer takes only minutes for an unattended person who knows what they are looking for, so be pro-active and turn your computer off before potential Buyers arrive.
Before you put your home in the market, empty out drawers, declutter & organize closets & pack up any personal items including medications. Consider renting a safety deposit box for your valuables.
