Selling Tips and Videos


Yikes! You've decided to sell. Before you put it on the market, take as much time (and as little money as possible) to get it ready. Here are a few quick tips to get you started:

  • Consider having a pre-listing home inspection done. This gives prospective buyers peace of mind.
  • Clean and align gutters.
  • Repair or replace damaged siding.
  • Replace burned out bulbs (use highest wattage allowed)
  • Remove valuables or put in a safe place during showings, to include jewelry, prescription drugs, firearms, and personal information.
  • Have the roof inspected and make any necessary repairs by a licesed roofer. Hold on to your receipt.
  • Check the foundation, driveway, steps and patio for cracks and crumbling, and if needed, repair them.
  • Have a licensed HVAC technical nspect/clean/service the furnace and A/C and keep the receipt for the buyer.
  • Declutter.
  • Give every room a good cleaning. Make those windows SPARKLE!!!
  • Lubricate and adjust all sliding doors and windows.
  • Ensure fireplace is free of ashes and the glass door is clean.
  • Declutter.
  • Repair damaged caulking in tubs and showers, and PLEASE KEEP THE TOILET LIDS DOWN!
  • If you have a lot of STUFF, consider renting a storage unit so you can declutter. Sometimes moving a big piece of furniture out of a room will make all the difference to a buyer.
  • Clean the carpets and flooring.
  • If you are able to add a fresh coat of paint, keep it neutral (both inside and out).
  • Declutter.
  • And - as much as we love our pets, try to have them removed (at a minimum put them in a kennel) during showings. Ensure there is no pet smell and please don't just cover it with a spray. Sometimes that's worse than no action at all!

Remember - it's a team effort getting the house ready to list and sell. Make it fun by rewarding everyone in the home once it's sold for keeping their rooms clean, etc.
