Handout for Sellers

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

Some tips to get ready to sell your home:

1.  Hire a cleaning service.  A spotlessly clean home is essential; dirt will turn off a prospect faster than anything.

2.  Pay attention to your curb appeal outside.  Mow your lawn, and be sure yard equipment is put away.

3.  Lock up your valuables, jewelry and money.  Better safe then sorry.

4.  Turn on all the lights.  Even in the daytime, it adds sparkle

5.  Send your pets to a neighbor.  If that is not possible, crate them or outside.

All great tips for sellers Will. Can't tell you how many homes we've been with our clients and the sellers are clueless on these simple solutions!

Good solid advice Will Hamm and sadly often ignored by whomever the home owner engaged to sell their home! You know, towels on the floor, dishes in the sink, toys everywhere, etc. I would only add these words to your list...make your bedrooms and bath look like a hotel room!

I would add as number one - get rid of anything that won't help sell the house! Put it in storage somewhere off the property, so the home looks uncluttered and show-ready!
