Top Ten Things to Do Before Listing Your Property for Sale

 



 Top Ten Things to Do Before Listing Your Property for Sale

1. Before you put your house on the market, even if you think it is in pristine condition, contact Real Estate agent Robert "Vegas Bob" Swetz  to walk through it. Vegas Bob may have suggestions for repairs or small improvements that could help you sell your house.

2. Maintain your lawn, garden, and shrubs. Keep the lawn watered and plant some flowers.

3. If you have a beautiful perennial garden or an herb garden that keep coming back each spring, shoot up a roll of film and put the pictures in an album for prospective buyers to look at. In the winter, people may have a hard time visualizing what the yard and garden will look like during the growing season.

4. Touch up the exterior paint if it's starting to flake or peel.

5. Have the chimney for both the furnace and the fireplace checked and cleaned.

6. Evaluate what your house looks like as you step in through the door. Does it look crowded or cluttered? Does it look like nobody lives there? Can people see past the "you" in the room and see the room itself?

7. Clean every room in the house thoroughly and get rid of the clutter and excess furniture. Have the carpets and draperies professionally cleaned. Put things in a storage locker if you have a lot of stuff. You'll make the rooms look bigger and brighter.

8. Make small fixes: touch up interior paint, or install new panels on the electrical switches. Fix drippy faucets, and update the knobs and handles on the kitchen cabinets. If a room really needs it, give it a new coat of paint in a neutral color. Have broken or cracked windows repaired or replaced. Wash the windows inside and out.

9. Clean the mildew out of your shower and touch up the grout.

10. Line up a professional cleaning service to come in while your house is on the market so you are always ready for short-notice calls seeking to set up viewings.

I like your suggestions. I'd have to add pre-listing inspections and bump or combine one of the others, in order to do those fixes you mentioned. Cheaper fixes pre-escrow! Great list!

I was talking with a seller yesterday about their pool. Since it is winterized we will be using their photos of it open and beautiful, Carol Williams.

This is a good article for a reblog. I suggest #6 start at the front curb, not the front door.

If the curb appeal isn't good, it is hard to get them to the front door. You are right, Nathan Gesner.
