Sellers

● Real estate is local. Your CENTURY 21A­One/Home Agent can explain current market

factors in your community, including what’s selling and why. This information is critical

to setting an optimal price and terms for your home.

● If a house has amenities that are currently popular in the marketplace, it will bring a

higher price.

● A house that has been well maintained shows better.

● It’s worth the time and expense to make basic repairs.

Home Sellers Check List

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. There is really no upside to trying to hide problems

anyway since most buyers will have the home inspected before closing.

Get the house in “showcase” condition

Small cosmetic touches can increase your home’s value by thousands. (See improvement section

below.)

 

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.

● Lawn: Keep your lawn freshly mowed and 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 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.

Suggested Interior Improvements

● Clean, scrub, and polish: Keep your stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, and other

appliances spotlessly clean inside and out.

● Clean and spot­treat all carpeting. Polish wood floors and vinyl flooring. Clean walls,

doors, and woodwork.

● Eliminate odors: Buyers will notice strong smells as soon as they walk through your front

door. Eliminate smoke, mildew, and pet odors.

● Fix drippy faucets and running toilets: If any of your sinks or bathtubs drain slowly,

unclog them.

● Get rid of clutter: Keep clutter off of kitchen counters and dirty dishes out of the sink.

Straighten all closets.

● Make cosmetic improvements: Painting isn’t expensive if you do it yourself, but be

careful when selecting interior colors. Avoid cherry red, canary yellow, emerald green,

and other bold colors with strong visual impact. Make sure hinges and knobs are

tightened and doors close properly.

Suggested Staging Tips

Here are some staging tips that you can use to increase your house’s emotional appeal.

● Kitchen: Aromas from fragrant goodies like freshly baked gingerbread or just­brewed

coffee bring back wonderful memories of home.

● Bathrooms: Always have fresh towels in bathrooms. Buy new shower curtains; old ones

are usually spotted with mildew. Put new soap in the soap dishes.

● Clear everything off your refrigerator: Most folks use magnets or tape to stick everything

from vacation snapshots and finger­painting masterpieces. Clear everything off.

Comfort: Keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. A house that’s too hot

or too cold isn’t inviting.

Flowers: Vases of colorful, fresh flowers spotted throughout the house make a wonderful

impression on prospective buyers.
