5 Things to do Before Putting Your Home on the Market

5 Things to do Before Putting Your Home on the Market

  1. Have a pre-sale home inspection. Be proactive by arranging for a pre-sale home inspection. An inspector will be able to give you a good indication of the trouble areas that will stand out to potential buyers, and you’ll be able to make repairs before open houses begin.
  2. Organize and clean. Pare down clutter and pack up your least-used items, such as large blenders and other kitchen tools, out-of-season clothes, toys, and exercise equipment. Store items off-site or in boxes neatly arranged in the garage or basement. Clean the windows, carpets, walls, lighting fixtures, and baseboards to make the house shine.
  3. Get replacement estimates. Do you have big-ticket items that are worn our or will need to be replaced soon, such your roof or carpeting? Get estimates on how much it would cost to replace them, even if you don’t plan to do it yourself. The figures will help buyers determine if they can afford the home, and will be handy when negotiations begin.
  4. Find your warranties. Gather up the warranties, guarantees, and user manuals for the furnace, washer and dryer, dishwasher, and any other items that will remain with the house.
  5. Spruce up the curb appeal. Pretend you’re a buyer and stand outside of your home. As you approach the front door, what is your impression of the property? Do the lawn and bushes look neatly manicured? Is the address clearly visible? Are pretty flowers or plants framing the entrance? Is the walkway free from cracks and impediments?

Pam came recommended by a family member, and I've now used her to buy two houses and sell one. She is great to work with, does not pressure you, is very honest about her opinion on what you're buying or selling, and can see potential where others may not.

We have had fantastic service from The Pam Roderick Team. Pam sold one of our homes in the toughest season possible - right before the holidays. The photos and virtual tour she put together helped sell the home. Most recently she has been assisting us in... (more)

Pam was very diligent and hard working. Pam fought very hard for us, as customers. She was not happy until we found the house we liked. Thanks to her we now have a great home in a beautifual neighborhood.
