Top 5 Things You Should Do Before You List Your Home For Sale

It can be an exciting and overwhelming process when listing your home for sale.  There is so much to take care of to get your home in the right condition for buyers to see. Whether your local real estate market is strong, and you are competing against many other homes, or you are the only home on your street for sale, there are a few key steps you should take to maximize the value of your property.  Here are the top 5 things you should do before you list your home for sale.

1. Walk-thru
Before doing anything, take a minute to walk through your entire home.  Look at what things a buyer might notice such as stains on the carpet, rooms that need to be painted, holes in the wall, or pealed paint.  While it can be difficult to notice these things as this is the home you have lived in, it is important to notice every little detail.  You may need to have a friend come over or hire someone to do a walk-thru with you.

2. Repair
After you have done a walk-thru and seen what needs to be fixed, start the repair phase.  Fix all of the cracks in the wall, repaint rooms that need to be painted, clean the carpets, and repair any hardwood floors that need done.  The two areas that you need to really focus on is the kitchen and bathrooms, as these are the areas that buyers tend to scrutinize the most.  After repairing everything that needs to be repaired, do a thorough house cleaning to make everything look new.

3. Take down belongings
While this may sound ridiculous, homes sell better when the buyer can actually picture themselves in your home.  What this means is take down pictures off of the walls that have your family in it and any other special belongings that buyers may not associate with.  This does not mean you have to move out before you list your home.  But try to make it so the buyer can actually visualize themselves in your home.

4. Remove unneeded furniture
Believe it or not, rooms look bigger the emptier they are.  Try to arrange your furniture to create as much open space as possible.  And if you need to, remove extra furniture to create more space.  The larger the house looks, the more willing people will be to pay for it.

5. Home inspection
The final thing you should do before you list your home for sale is do a home inspection.  Doing a home inspection yourself instead of having the buyer do it has a number of advantages.  First, it will prevent a buyer from putting a home inspection condition in their offer.  Second, it will allow you to fix anything that a buyer may use to reduce your offer.

There are a number of things you will want to do prior to listing your home for sale.  These are the top 5 things you should do before you list your home for sale.

What is the Importance of a Home Inspection?

When you want to buy or sell a home you will want to have a home inspection done. There are benefits to having this inspection done for the buyer and the seller. This article will tell you what those advantages are and what the importance of a home inspection is. You don’t want to buy or sell a home without knowing this information.

The importance of a home inspection for the buyer is just as important as for the seller. The benefits to having a home inspection done are that you will be able to find out everything about the home before you buy it. This will allow you to see the home up close so you know exactly what you are buying.

The advantages of a home inspection for the seller are that you will be able to find out about any previously unknown problems or potential upgrades so you can address them before you sell. It is always important to be aware of any issues in advance so you can disclose the problems to the buyer if you are not able to fix them. This will allow the transaction to go smoothly for everyone concerned.

Now that you know what the importance of a home inspection is you need to know how to get it done and what your role should be during the inspection. The seller is usually the one to get the home inspection done but the buyer can also have their own inspection done if they choose to. So if you want to get someone to inspect the home you will need to do a couple of different things.

One: You want to make sure that you hire a professional. Make sure that the inspector you use is a member of ASHI or American Society of Home Inspectors. This way you know you are getting someone that knows what they are doing. In Canada there are currently no mandatory certifications or legislative requirements for home inspectors, however there are industry associations such as The Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (CAHPI).

Two: After the home inspection is done you want to make sure that you get a copy of the printed report. You can usually get the written report with no problems but you want to make sure that you ask about any photos that may have been taken during the inspection. It is a good idea to have a copy of both the report and photos.

Three: Be at the home inspection. You don’t have to be but if you are than you will be able to ask any questions you have. This is especially helpful for the buyer of the home because it gives you a chance to become more familiar with the home and it will add confidence that you are getting a good home.

Now you know the importance of a home inspection for the seller and the buyer. Always get this done before you buy or sell a home because if you don’t then you may run into problems later that you could have known about if you had just had the home inspection done.
