blog-post-checklistThinking of listing your home? Here are a few things you will want to have in order before you list.

Establish a Plan - Now that you have decided to list your home, where will you be going? If you haven’t already begun your search for a new property, now is the time. You should be prepared to move as soon as your house is sold. Getting pre-apporoved for a loan is a good first step. Next is the search for your new home!

Find an Agent - In all reality, this is a business decision and a very important one at that. You are going to want an agent to guide you through this process, someone that is going to tell you what you need to hear and not just what you want to hear.

Get Your Home into Shape - Start with things like your water heater, A/C and roof. You’ll want to make sure that everything is in good shape. If you feel that its necessary, you can also hire a licensed home inspector to go over all of that for you. Next is curb appeal. Make sure that your yard and the exterior of the house looks clean and inviting. Finally, cleaning the inside, top to bottom, is a must. Hiring a cleaning service is always a good idea!

Be Prepared - Have a plan in the instance that you are asked to close quickly. Generally, most don’t expect an expeditious offer but depending on the buyer, its a possibility. Its better to be prepared to move out quickly than to have to refuse an offer.
